Hunter Safety Course

Instructors certified by the Department of Environmental Conservation will conduct a Hunter Safety Course August 18, 20 and 23 at the North Star Sportsman’s Club in Hamlin.

Those interested in attending need to register on-line through the NYS DEC website at:http://www.dec.state.ny.us or at http://www.register-ed.com/programs/newyork (event manager). All registered students need to pick up the student manual at the Town of Parma Clerk’s Office located at 1300 Hilton Parma Corners Road, Hilton, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is recommended that the student pick up the manual several days before the course starts (homework is due the first night).

The free course is required for first time hunters who wish to obtain a New York State hunting license. Safe firearm handling combined with responsible and ethical hunter conduct will be covered. Pre-course work is required and space is limited so it is recommended to register early.

A parent or legal guardian may need to accompany younger than 16 years of age. Registration is handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
