Pre-purchasing Shotgun Permits
Green Key holders may pre-purchase the 2024 Annual Shotgun Hunting Permit online or in person at any of our year-round parks starting November 4, 2023. Pre-purchasing your annual hunting permit DOES NOT guarantee a reservation. If you do not pre-purchase your permit, you can add it to your cart before making your hunting area reservation.
Suffolk County Parks will be taking online reservations for hunting areas instead of conducting an advanced lottery. The reservation system will open for hunting reservations on December 4, 2023, at 9:00 am. “Party Leaders” must be Suffolk County residents, 18 years or older, with a valid green key card, and be able to log into their reservation system account. Hunting Party Leaders are only eligible to make one (1) reservation between December 4, 2023, and December 17, 2023. After this initial period, we will open the reservation system, beginning at 9AM the following day, for additional hunting area reservations based on availability. Hunters may make an additional two (2) reservations for a total of three (3) hunting area reservations. Advance reservations can be made up until 2PM the day before the reservation. After that time reservations will close and vacant areas will be available at the Daily Lottery.
