DEC Hunter Safety
All new hunters, bow hunters and trappers must pass the appropriate course before getting their first license. Students must demonstrate proper attitude and safety, and pass the test. Courses develop skills and attitudes which help students to be better hunters, and respect people, wildlife, and nature, respect public and private property, practice safe and ethical behavior, appreciate man as a part of nature, and support conservation efforts.
Please see the DEC website for more information as well as dates and locations for these classes.
