Hunter Safety & Education Courses

In New York State all first-time hunters, bowhunters and trappers must pass one or more courses before they can get a license. At the Millbrook Rod & Gun Club we provide courses to help enthusiasts become legally licensed.

We offer both Hunter Education and Bowhunter Education (there are 5 types of classes in total: hunter education, bowhunter education, combo hunter/bowhunter eduction, trapper eduction & waterfowl ID).

Long-time club member Mark Storms is certified by the NYSDEC to conduct hunter education training classes.  Long-time friend of the Club, Tony Robert, conducts bowhunter certification training classes at the Club. The Club provides lunches for attendees at no charge and instructors utilize our shooting facilities for instruction.
