HuntFishNY is the official New York State Department of Environmental Conservation mobile app that provides our sportsmen/women a simple way to display their licenses and privileges and view important hunting and fishing related information. In addition to the many resources DEC's website offers for hunters, trappers and anglers across the state, our HuntFishNY mobile app offers instant mobile access to electronic versions of your sporting licenses, privileges and permits; the ease of reporting your game harvests immediately; and links to useful information like season date summaries, fishing information, a DEC Contact list, and much more. It also includes a feature called the Tackle Box that provides anglers with one stop shopping for waterbody-specific information on fishing regulations, stocking, and fishing/boating access sites. Tackle Box is part of DEC’s continued efforts to make fishing easier, more enjoyable and more accessible to all!

Ratings and Reviews
It’s laughable that this is supposed to be an official app for NY hunters to use. Half the time it doesn’t even work. When it actually does let me log in none of my permits or licenses show up. I’m all for an app making things easier for people but this does the opposite. It’s just frustrating.
Don’t listen to the bad ones.
I swear all the negative reviews on this must be from people who are technologically challenged or just not very bright in the first place.
I’ve literally never had a problem with this app and it’s worked perfectly for me across multiple platforms. it’s got all my licenses and permits on here and it’s really easy to harvest report straight from this app.
This app is seriously the most useless app I’ve had. It hardly ever actually works. Some of the features it says it has, aren’t there. It glitches ALL THE TIME. My biggest issue is trying to switch users between me and my 2 sons. My sons are 12 and 14 and when I registered them at 11, I used my email address and their name. This app is on my phone and won’t allow me to switch between users with the same email address. I rarely delete apps, but I’ve been trying to use this since the beginning, and it’s just not worth the frustration. I have other things in life for that.
