About this app

HuntFishNY is the official New York State Department of Environmental Conservation app that provides our sportsmen/women with a simple, user friendly way to display their sporting license and/or privileges as well as a method to report the harvest of a deer, bear or a turkey immediately while afield. It is a legal requirement for a hunter to report all deer, bear and turkey takes within 7 days of harvesting. This information is critical to wildlife management, and is used to determine the overall health of the species population, and in setting future hunting seasons.

App features include:

• Provides instant, mobile access to a customer's sporting licenses, privileges, and permits
• Quick and easy creation of new Game Harvest Reports
• Ability to view current and past harvest reports and current, active licenses
• Smart filtering for collecting town, county, and WMU of harvest data, as well as season and method of take info
• Share harvest reports with friends and followers on Facebook
• Send feedback to DEC staff and access NYSDEC resources from the field

Absolute garbage. As with all NYS sites, the account is impossible to maintain. Once your password expires, it is nearly impossible to change. If you forget your password, you might as well delete the app...locked out forever. On top of that, there is now a 14 character password requirement along with all the tradition requirements. It's like trying to sign into a multi million dollar investment account.

Terrible experience so far! Cant even get started. First you have to go to the web site to register (so your'e told but it appears you can register at the app itself) and the only selection is to purchase a licence, there is no option for current holder. So under "licences held" I put in my current licence # but apparently there is no creoss reference to what licence you do hold! Then, the app immediately freezes! Tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. What would I expect from NYS!

Downloaded the app to report a harvest. Unable to login. Username and password don't work. Try to register and it tells me I already have an account. Login through the website with the same credentials and it works fine. Go back and try the app again and still fails. May as well just use the website. Webpage layouts on mobile browser for HIPS are awful but at least I can get logged in. If you want people to be better about reporting their harvests you need to get these issues resolved.
