So I'm now a resident of CT.

I don't, really, really don't want to wait two weeks from putting my money down to picking up my rifle/shotgun/whatever. One way out of this that I found is to get a hunting license.

What exactly does that entail, though? I've heard it can be an 8 hour long two day course and $150 fee; I hope I heard wrong.

Bump.

I'm sure someone has a CT license to hunt.

Hunter Education Requirements
No hunting or trapping licenses will be issued to any person unless proof is provided that they have held a RESIDENT license in the respective sport within the last 5 years OR the person has a certificate indicating successful completion of a Connecticut Conservation Education/Firearms (CE/FS) course (or recognized equivalent) in the respective sport for which they are applying. Courses are available year round. To become certified in firearms or bowhunting, a person must be 11 years or older. All bowhunters must show proof when purchasing a small game/deer archery permit that they have completed the CE/FS bowhunting course (since 1982) or its equivalent from another state or country. If you have previously purchased a 2002, or later, Connecticut bowhunting license you have already provided such proof. Obtain course listings online, from town clerks or by contacting the CE/FS program at (860)675-8130 (Western CT) and (860)642-7239 (Eastern CT).

3rd Rail, Welcome!
I got a pistol permit because it wasn't that much more of a hassle than a hunting license and I am not a hunter. I know one guy who took a 2 day class for his hunting license. I only had to take an 8 hour course.

I would like to try another CT highroad get together. I bailed on the last one. there are a few of us here.
