This will be my second year of hunting coming up. I have a 2004-2005 Sportsman License. This year I will be hunting bow. I looked for this info on the DEC site but it's still confusing. What I need to know is, do I need to purchase a new hunting license with 2005-2006 on it or can i still use my 2004-2005 license and get the bow stamp? I planned on getting a Super Sportsman but wanted to see if I can save a few bucks but continuing to use the license from last year.
the 05 license expires right around now if I remember correctly
Licenses and permits are valid from October 1 through September 30. To hunt in small game or big game seasons starting prior to October 1, the previous year's license is required. Previous year big game licenses are available all license issuing agents.
