NOTE: A recent change in app developer ownership created an issue in the HuntFishNY mobile app that was causing the app to crash upon launch. An update to the app was released on 8/21/23 that resolved the issue. Users who had previously installed HuntFishNY on their phones will need to update the app to the most recent version. For those users who have automatic updates turned on, the app should auto-update on its own. For users who have automatic updates turned off, you will need to go into the Apple App Store or Google Play and tap on the Update button to manually update the app.

If you are experiencing issues logging into the app, and for all other technical issues, please call the DECALS call center at 866-933-2257 or email DEC staff at
