Hunting Season: DEC Online
Hunting season is just a few weeks away and New York state has made it easier to get hunter or trapper licenses.
New York (WENY) - Hunting season is just a few weeks away and New York state has made it easier to get hunter or trapper licenses. A new online registration system now allows people to complete educational programs for hunting licenses all on the computer.
New York's Department of Environmental Conservation says the new system will make it easier for people to find a nearby course and sign up. The classes are free and taught by volunteers. Training and regulations have helped reduce the number of hunting-related shooting accidents over the years. Go to DEC's website www.dec.ny.gov for more information.
