The Town Clerk's office issues New York State Sporting licenses for big and small game hunting, trapping, and fishing. Licenses run from October 1st to September 30th of the following year. All sportsmen/women must present proof of identity and address (usually a driver's license. For hunting/bowhunting licenses proof of a prior license or a hunter/bowhunting training certificate is also required.) Currently the Town Clerk's Office is processing Deer Management Permits.
