Bowhunter & Hunter Safety Courses

Hunter Safety - September 10th & September 17th 2022

The Sportsmen’s Club of Clifton Park offers Hunter Safety and Bowhunter Safety Courses, to meet the required certification for New York State licensing. Classes are usually held twice a year and are open to all.

New York has an extremely safety–conscious generation of hunters, thanks largely to over 60 years of Sportsman Education and the dedicated efforts of thousands of volunteer Instructors. Hunting remains safer than ever, but we cannot become complacent, as every hunting–related shooting incident is preventable.
