NY has lifetime licenses to hunt, fish, tour parks

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) New York is offering lifetime licenses to hunt, fish and visit state parks.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Wednesday that he hopes a portion of the 2 million people who buy annual hunting licenses, fishing licenses and park permits in New York will make the switch. Lifetime hunting licenses cost $535, lifetime fishing licenses $460 and lifetime Empire Passport park permits cost $750.

As an incentive, lifetime license holders will be able to receive for free scenic-themed license plates playing off the “I Love NY” theme that promote fishing, hunting or parks.

Lifetime license holders also will be eligible for a state-issued “Adventure License,” which is a driver's license that also serves as a hunting or other recreational license.

The products are part of Cuomo's efforts to promote outdoor tourism.
