Sportsmen Education…Make Sure You Qualify

All first-time hunters, bowhunters or trappers planning to go afield this upcoming hunting and trapping season must first complete a hunter or trapper education course before they can get a license in New York.

Previously licensed hunters who plan to hunt outside of NY, should check with the state you plan to hunt in. All states accept NY’s hunter education course but states differ on what is required as proof of completion. Many will request your original “Hunter Education Certificate” in order to purchase their license.

Check to see if you have your certificate, as issuing a replacement will be time consuming. All courses are free of charge, and as hunting seasons approach, courses fill quickly. To locate a nearby course and course list, visit DEC’s website. SIGN UP EARLY!
