oh i didnt think of that...all the ones i read about said MUST PRE REGISTER so i didnt even think about dropouts...
The place I went to had a great group of guys running the course. They were very understanding. Pre-registering was also required but they were able get it done.

I took my safety course two weeks ago. There were a few no shows and people who got in on those no shows. As a last resort, if you cant find any openings its worth a shot going to full class and hope for a no show and take their spot. Good luck.
Not a bad idea.... I just finished hunter safety tonight with Papabear... bowhunter 4 weeks ago.... I did both by just showing up, nicely asking if I could wait to see if there's any no-shows and I was good to go.
there were 68 grads tonight!!! this course needs to be more often (and on weekends!) but I think you may be out of luck for this year... they added a nov. class up at campsite, but it's been taken off the DEC site since it's filled already (weeknights)
You could check CT or PA for a weekend class... But check with NYDEC first to make sure those would be acceptable.
