How to Book your New York State Hunter Safety Field Day
Before you start the online course, be sure to locate and sign up for a Field Day in your area. Field Days can be difficult to find in certain areas, so be sure to plan ahead! You must then complete the online course before you attend the Field Day.
You can book your Field Day online.
Field Days are administered by NYS DEC-certified hunter safety instructors and are expected to last about 5 hours. The Field day tasks will include hands-on activities and a written final exam. You must pass the final exam in order to obtain the New York State hunter education certificate.
You must bring a copy of your Field Day Voucher and a piece of valid identification to your Field Day. Children who do not have their own ID may have a parent or guardian show ID on their behalf.
To complete the hunter education requirements for New York State you must pass the online and Field Day portions of the hunter education course.
For those students who are enrolled in a NYS DEC Summer Camp, you are NOT required to register for a Field Day. The follow-up component will be completed at camp, but you are still required to bring your Field Day Voucher with you.
