ALBANY, N.Y. — New York is offering lifetime licenses to hunt, fish and visit state parks.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Wednesday that he hopes a portion of the 2 million people who buy annual hunting licenses, fishing licenses and park permits in New York will make the switch. Lifetime hunting licenses cost $535, lifetime fishing licenses $460 and lifetime Empire Passport park permits cost $750.

As an incentive, lifetime license holders will be able to receive for free scenic-themed license plates playing off the “I Love NY" theme that promote fishing, hunting or parks.

Lifetime license holders also will be eligible for a state-issued “Adventure License,'' which is a driver's license that also serves as a hunting or other recreational license.

The products are part of Cuomo's efforts to promote outdoor tourism.
