That's funny. I just moved to CT from NY and they accepted my NY license as proof at the town clerk's office, even though the state web site says they don't. The clerk called the state people and they said it was OK. Go figure.
I had an undated bow hunter safety certificate, and the clerk was all over it looking for a date, but finally took it too, and put that in the computer for the future. Being a geezer, everything was free, including a fishing permit (I didn't take the bow tag which would have cost).
