Hunting, trapping licenses on sale Aug. 10
By New York Department of Environmental Conservation
Hunting and trapping licenses and Deer Management Permits (DMPs) for the 2020-2021 season will go on sale August 10.
With liberal bag limits and some of the longest seasons around, New Yorkers can hunt continuously from Sept. 1 (squirrel) into April (snow geese).
Licenses and permits can be purchased by calling (866)933-2257 or at any DEC license-issuing agent.
New hunting and trapping licenses are valid from Sept. 1, 2020 through Aug. 31, 2021. Annual fishing licenses are valid for 365 days from date of purchase.
New York's habitat serves a vital role in maintaining healthy and sustainable fish and wildlife resources.
Purchasing a hunting or trapping license helps support important conservation projects. Outdoor enthusiasts are also encouraged to consider purchasing a Habitat & Access Stamp each year. Funds from the $5 Habitat & Access Stamp support projects to conserve habitat and improve public access for fish-and-wildlife-related activities.
