I'm from PA and took an online course 3 years ago to get my NY archery license. I'm pretty sure the course I took was through bowhunter-ed.com and cost like $30 or something. The downside was there were time limits for each page, so you couldn't skip through the easy stuff. I think overall it was probably like 3-4 hours to complete. I'd recommend taking the course, especially since it sounds like you're new-ish to archery hunting.
