Getting ready - HIP & Duck Stamp
Good morning, All~


I just ordered my NYS Licenses - so I went ahead and got my new HIP and my Duck Stamp.


One thing I have done in the HIP era is to print out my HIP number on a piece of card stock - then affix (and sign!) my Stamp on the reverse side.







There's really not enough space on the NYS License for both - at least not legibly. The HIP/Stamp card stows in my wallet right next to my license - and my sunrise/sunset table.


All the best,


SJS

Interesting concept Steve and very classy. I always thought the Federal Stamp had to be affixed to your license and signed in ink.

It's a challenge to get the Federal Stamp on my non resident Michigan license so I put mine on the resident paper Indiana one.

Good morning, Rod~


Affixing one's Duck Stamp to the license is one of those Popular Misconceptions - which just won't die, it seems. No such requirement.



On the other hand, the Duck Stamp MUST be signed across its face - so it cannot be swapped amongst gunners I believe.


All the best,

The post office I visited today did not yet have duck stamps in. Apparently I was the first to ask this year. I imagine they will arrive soon.
