I hope this email finds you and your family safe and healthy. Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has announced that it is offering for a limited time, an online hunter safety certification course.
This online course will be available from April 15th to June 30th and can be taken by anyone 11 years or older and licenses may be purchased by anyone over the age of 12. The cost of the course is $19.95. The link to the website is https://www.hunter-ed.com/newyork/.
This new online opportunity will help parents and grandparents pass on safe hunting practices and maintain the tradition of outdoor recreation within their family and around our region and our state.
As your State Senator, I take great pride in defending our Second Amendment rights and the rights of our sportsmen and sportswomen. Please do not hesitate to contact me whenever I can be of assistance with regards to your New York State government.
State Senator, 54th District
