Sale of Game Licenses
The Town Clerk's Office administers the sale and accounting of game licenses for the State. They are many types of licenses. Hunting licenses are strictly monitored. If an applicant presents a hunting license which has been procured in any of the past 5 years, he is issued another single license. However, if more than 5 years have passed since he held a hunting license, he must take a course prescribed by the DEEP.
There are no special requirements for fishing licenses. Anyone of the age of 16 or more must have a license to fish. We also carry all forms of licenses for non-residents. Fees for licenses are set by State Statute. Of the fee collected, only $1 goes to the Town, the rest to the Department of Environmental Protection in Hartford.
Sporting licenses are issued on a calendar year and expire on December 31st of the year purchased. Lifetime licenses are available for those 65 years or older, but must be renewed annually.
