I got mine from LI Outdoorsman. They suck. The printing is all off. There is printing on the perforations. From what I understand the new paper didn't work well in the printers which is why a lot of places went back to the yellow
It has come to our attention that one or more of the carcass tags issued with your 2014-15 New York State hunting license and/or privileges contains only 8 digits, instead of the standard 12 digits normally associated with your licenses and tags. Please be advised that if you should harvest a deer, bear or turkey with one of these tags, you will be asked to enter a 12 digit number into the game harvest reporting system. In order to successfully report a harvest on one of these tags, please enter preceding zeros for the first four digits. For example, if your carcass tag number is 12345678, please enter 000012345678. You may report a game harvest by phone at 866-426-3778 or online at http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/8316.html
If you have any questions on this matter or if you have any difficulty attempting to enter a game harvest, please feel free to contact our Deer Management Hotline at 866-472-4332 (Monday-Friday from 8:00AM - 4:00PM). We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience caused by this issue.
I hope you have a safe and successful hunting season this fall.
