New York’s Open for Hunting & Fishing
 
2013-14 Enacted Budget to Restructure and Streamline
New York State’s Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Licenses
 
Governor Cuomo and the Legislature have agreed to simplify the sporting licensestructure for anglers, hunters, and trappers and license-issuing agents as part of the2013-14 State Budget. The goal of the proposal is to foster the recruitment and retentionof hunters, anglers and trappers
both from New York and out-of-state. Streamliningand simplifying the sporting licenses will lend support to tourism, attracting outsidemoney to the state and keeping New York money in New York.
Overview
The license restructuring and simplification will:
 
Reduce the number of license types while maintaining the current hunting, fishing,and trapping privileges and opportunities.
 
Eliminate the various combination licenses (sportsman, super sportsman, trappersuper sportsman, conservation legacy).
 
Reduce many fees for hunting, fishing and trapping licenses. It also reduces fees fornon-resident hunting and fishing license fees to attract more out-of stateparticipants.
 
Change the license year for hunting licenses from October 1
September 30 toSeptember 1
August 31; this will reduce confusion and foster huntingopportunities for the squirrel and goose seasons statewide as well as the beginningof the bow season and the early bear season in the Northern zone, all of which startin September.
 
Create a non-resident license structure which is the same as the resident licensestructure (same privileges afforded per license type whether one is a resident ornon-resident).
 
Privileges and prices based on age, disability, military status, residency (see chart below).
 
No changes to the current set of carcass tags associated with resident licenses andprivileges as a result of the license restructuring.
 
While fees are reduced, the Conservation Fund remains solvent for at least five years(through State Fiscal Year 2018-19) at current and projected levels of spendingThe proposal would become effective February 1, 2014 to coincide with the transition tothe new e-licensing system. Current fees and structure will remain in effect throughcalendar year 2013.
 
Fishing Licenses
 
Make fishing licenses valid for one full year from the date of purchase (currentlyfishing licenses are valid for a license year
October 1
September 30).
 
Make recreational marine fishing registrations valid for one year from date ofregistration (currently recreational marine fishing registrations are valid on acalendar year basis
January 1 - December 31).
 
 
Repeals the sunset to continue the recreational marine fishing registration
Hunting Licenses
 
Hunting license includes small game and big game hunting privileges, includingantlered deer tag and bear tag for all license holders. Currently, non-residents couldonly purchase small game and big game hunting privileges separately with anadditional fee for the bear tag.
 
All existing mentoring programs for hunters and trappers continue without anychanges.
 
Reduce non-resident hunting license costs from $275 to $100 for same privileges(small game, big game, and bear).
 
The hunting license will serve as a required “base license” for bowhunting and
muzzleloading privileges for both residents and non-residents. Currently, non-resident bow hunting and muzzleloading are stand alone licenses.
Trappers
 
 
Retains standalone trapping license.
