DEC Starts New Fishing, Hunting, Trapping License System

On July 1, DEC announced the launch of the State's new system for the sale of fishing, hunting, and trapping licenses. The new DEC Automated Licensing System (DECALS) includes user-friendly information to help users locate vendors, receive instant copies of a license, enter and view harvest information, and more.

While the transition to the new system is progressing smoothly not all License Issuing Agents (LIA) are up and running. Anglers that cannot purchase a license at a LIA can still get a license quickly and easily by calling 1-866-933-2257 or going online at

All you need is the DEC License Sales Number as acceptable proof of your fishing license. Purchase your license today and be on the water in no time!
