Something that I've wondered about ever since the DEC went to the new licensing format years ago....

 

If I buy a sportsman license, why can't they print a single pane "fishing tag" like they do for all other carcass tags ? You could then carry that as your license.

 

This is what I carry as proof of license, but the old traditional part of me has concerns that I'm carrying my receipt and not my license.

I agree ever since they got rid of the sportsman I costs me a extra buck lol. I think trapping made the difference. But I won't complain bc in my opinion this state does alot wrong but so far hunting and fishing is pretty good as far as laws and stuff go

X2 with chinook35 but I bought mine when they first came out. The first time I was checked the officers didn't know what it was. I don't think they issue them that way anymore and it's a shame, they're the same as a credit card.

For the last ten years I have done the same as Justin...one in the boat one in my wallet.

When I get my fishing license online, I have the option of printing/saving it as a PDF. I always print one and save the pdf file, also get the vinyl tag in the mail eventually, but stick the paper one in my wallet right away so I don’t forget.

I have been going online for several years for my NY license and I have never received a vinyl one in the mail.

Usually it came with the hunting tags, but I only got the fishing license last year and this year, we’ll see if it shows up again this year.
