hunting1Governor Andrew Cuomo introduced the New York State Adventure License Series last week, a new promotional effort to provide New Yorkers and visitors the opportunity to purchase lifetime licenses to fish, hunt and visit New York State Parks. This is part of the State’s efforts to boost tourism and enhance recreational opportunities across the state for outdoor enthusiasts.

New York’s Lifetime Adventure License Series will provide many benefits including:

  • Lifetime Hunting License: $535 for small/big game
  • A lifetime hunting license allows holders to hunt across millions of acres of majestic wild lands in New York while saving on the costs of an annual license.
  • Lifetime Fishing License: $460
  • A lifetime fishing license provides a lifetime of fishing on more than 70,000 miles of rivers and streams and more than 7,000 lakes and ponds while saving on the cost of an annual license.
  • Lifetime Empire Passport: $750 with special offer
  • The Lifetime Empire Passport allows holders to enjoy the forests, the seashore, and the lakefronts in New York’s state parks for years and years to come while saving on the cost of an annual license. In addition, as a free one-time special bonus, purchasers will be able to select from any one of the following: a free week of camping, a free round of golf for four, or a $100 State Parks gift card.
  • As part of the initiative, the Governor unveiled nine new license plate designs available for free exclusively to those buying new lifetime hunting, fishing, or parks licenses in 2014. Click here to see the designs.

In addition, New York residents who have lifetime licenses now have the opportunity to receive an Adventure License, which consolidates all their recreational licenses and benefits on to their New York State Driver’s License.

“We are excited to offer New Yorkers and visitors the opportunity to enjoy and explore the Empire State’s great outdoors for a lifetime,” Governor Cuomo said.
