Mentored Hunts


One of the greatest hurdles to newly certified hunters going afield is the lack of experienced hunters to learn from. Mentored hunts and sponsored pheasant hunts provide an opportunity for novice hunters to gain hands-on, in the field experience under the supervision and assistance of more experienced individuals.

Show additional information

Mentored and sponsored pheasant hunts are facilitated mostly by non-DEC entities. DEC’s main role is to provide pheasants for the hunts and to increase awareness, facilitate registration, and improve accessibility of mentored hunts to a broader audience. Requirement – participants must have successfully completed a hunter education course and purchased a New York State hunting license prior to registering for a mentored hunt.
