Supplies may become limited, so if you have your own fishing tackle and supplies, you are encouraged you bring them.
Sportsman Education and Wildlife Information including a Wildlife Pelt Quiz and materials to help you prepare to take Hunter, Bowhunter and Trapping Education courses, which are required before you can get New York State hunting and trapping licenses.
