Any resident of this state may be issued a falconry license. The department shall prescribe and furnish forms for application for such license. The fee for the license shall be forty dollars. Falconry licenses shall expire on December 31 every fifth year and shall be renewable at the discretion of the department. A falconry license shall authorize the licensee to obtain, buy, sell, barter, possess and train raptors for falconry and to engage in falconry, provided that no game shall be taken or killed except during an open season therefor, and further provided that such licensee shall also possess a license pursuant to this chapter which authorizes the holder to hunt wildlife. Any non-resident, who legally possesses a raptor where he or she resides and who may legally engage in falconry where he or she resides, may engage in falconry in New York without a falconry license provided he or she possesses a valid non-resident hunting license.
