NY DEC considering a recreational saltwater license

Recommended Posts

I just got an emailed survey from NYDEC since I annually purchase both a hunting (and archery and turkey) license and freshwater fishing license as a non-resident in NY.  They are looking for input on support or lack thereof for a future saltwater fishing license.  I'm sure many others here have gotten or will be getting the same link.

I received the Email and  Do Not Support it !

Don't know how others feel, but I supported it as I did in NJ which went with a free registry and now regrets that decision.  Hunting and fishing license fees, at least here in NJ, are put into the Dedicated Hunter and Angler Fund and Trenton politicians can't touch it.  Those funds go directly to the management of fish, game and non-game alike.  Saltwater has no fees currently in our two states, and the states suffer to cover expenses by lacking that revenue.  Also, the cost of the license is about the cheapest thing we spend our money on.  There is no bigger bargain out there IMO.

Does your state share hunting and fishing revenues with Albany or are you like NJ and it’s kept separate from our General Treasury if you know?  I’m just curious.

Don't I have a NY saltwater license already? Or maybe I just had to register for a free license? I recall but don't remember something like that... @Chef ?

Free registry.

What habitat are they going to manage?  

Problems we have now could be addressed without more money from my pocket, but aren't. And not because they can't afford it. 

It's NY, more money is always better than less money. Even if they don't need it, they'll find a way to waste it.

The NYS Thruway was supposed to be payed off after 25 years and then no Tolls - Didn't happen !

The George Washington Bridge going over to New Jersey was supposed to be paid off after 25 years then no Tolls - Didn't happen !

The Lottery was supposed to generate enough income to eliminate School Taxes - Didn't happen !

Social Security was supposed to be independent of all other Funds - Didn't happen !

If they - Politicians - can figure a way to Re Distribute Funds they will ( given the chance ) !

( just wondering how many trolls will check what I just said ! :tooth: )
