New York Hunting License for Waterfowl

Postby Capt. Taco » Sun Aug 27, 2006 2:04 pm

I am new to New York after having moved to NYC from Louisiana.
I would like to hunt ducks and geese during the upcoming season and I am not sure about which hunting licenses that are required for the state of New York.

I have purchased a Federal Duck Stamp and I am HIP certified in New York.

I attempted to purchase a hunting license on line from the State of New York and was unsuccessful since I had not purchased a license on line previously. This makes a lot of sense.

I live in the Bronx and there are no sporting goods stores or hunting stores in the area.

I have downloaded the forms to purchase a hunting license form the Department of Environmental Conservation.

My question is what licenses do I need to purchase?

I believe that I would need a Small/Big Game license.

However, I do not see a New York Waterfowl Stamp on the form.

What exactly should I purchase?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You'll have to take in either a certificate from a hunters safety course, or an old Hunting license (one from LA should work), to a town clerks office, or another place that sells hunting licenses. You'll also have to take proof that you have been a resident for 30 days. You'll need photo ID. You either need a Small game license, or the Sportsman license (this one covers large and small game, and fishing) I think ther are some fishing stores in some of the Boroughs down there (Orvis, LL Bean, etc) if they sell fishing licenses they can sell you your hunting license. I live in CNY and generally go to my Town Clerks Office just because they generally know all the rules and I don't have to worry aout some idiot clerk screwing things up. If you've got a current license and your Fed stamp and Hip number you're legal. I don't think you can get your first one online, because they need to see photo ID and a past license of some sort to get you into the system.

Good luck :salude:

Clutch and 870,


Thanks for the information and the Welcome! That's the information I needed. I do have proof of residency for greater than 30 days and I also have a certificate from a Hunter Safety Course. I will go to a local sporting goods store with my photo ID and get a license.

What might be some good areas to start scouting for hunting this season?

I have an 18 foot aluminum boat, dog, decoys, and all other gear. I thought Long Isand Sound and the Great South Bay might be good to look at for this year.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

thanks!

Unfortunately I can't really help with hunting spots by you. I'm way north of NYC, near Syracuse. And 870 is way further north than I am. I would see if you could talk with one of your local DEC officers. Alot of times they'll be able to steer you in the right direction, and give you a couple spots to try. They'll also be able to give you some info on some of the townships down on LI. I've heard it has gotten a little rough to hunt in some spots down there, and that there were a few towns who try to dissuade people from hunting in their areas. You can find out where the DEC office near you is is the hunting syllabus I believe, and it'll also have the phone numbers of the DEC officers for your area which is good to have in case you run into any Anti's, local law enforcement, and poachers.

Where in LA are you from?

Harvey and Clutch,

Thanks for the information! Right on. I will get in touch with a DEC officer from Long Island and see what information I can get. I am also going to attend a number of DU events and waterfowl events this fall and see what is going on locally.

I lived in New Orleans and in North Louisiana as well. I left right after Katrina and moved from North Louisiana to NYC.

I have hunted waterfowl all over Louisiana for over 10 years and have also hunted a fair amount in Arkansas. If I can help anybody with information regarding Louisiana or Arkansas just let me know.

This website has helped me out a good bit.

Thanks!

Capt. Taco dont listen to 870 all they shoot is trash ducks. :toofunny: :laughing: :laughing:
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Its strange that you say that. My partner has been talking of moving to Kentucky and wondered If I could ever move. I really dont know, maybe one day at least kentucky would be half way there. :laughing:
