Here is the breakdown for NY:
Super Sportsman: All hunting/fishing/bow/muzz $68
Sportsman: Hunting/fishing$37

I bought the lifetime sportsman and archery license some time back for $625. Since that time it has increased to $780. I figure that my initial investment has already paid for itself! If your state offers the lifetime license for children, I recommend that you take advantage of it. The cost of hunting and fishing privledges is only going to increase in the future.

$20 for a resident hunting license
$16 for a resident archery stamp
$6 for each antlerless tag
$16 for resident bear
$25 for resident elk
For this cost, I think it's the best deal going. Actually, for all of the enjoyment and excitement you get during an entire season, that's a small price to pay! JMO

I bought a Louisana lifetime license that covers everything for $300. It pays for itself in 5 years. If you have kids under the age of 4, you can buy a lifetime license for them for $200. It really pays off and once you buy you never have to worry about buying licenses again. I love it.

I had never heard of a life time hunting license. Well guess what? Washington now has one but it is different. You pay only $6.50 for your name to be put into four lottory drawing during the year. That is all it costs. If your name is drawn then you can choose fish and/or game license for the rest of your life for free (except for the $6.50 entrance fee). Not bad. You can also gift the remaining over to a friend or loved one if you get tired of hunting. I guess I will have to start putting my name in the hat next year.

This year it went up $8 in Alabama. Now it is $24 for resident hunting. This includes all hunting. They leasened our buck harvest this year, so we get 3 antlered, one of which has to have 4 points on one side. In addition, we can kill one antlerless per day.
