ATTENTION ALL NEW USERS: To ensure safety and prevent military mission interference and resource overexploitation, West Point must control access to its military reservation. Individuals accessing the West Point Military Reservation must meet required eligibility standards as described in Army Regulation 215-1. To accomplish this, West Point iSportsman administrators must vet all new accounts.
ATTENTION: When signing up for a new WestPoint.iSportsman account you will be asked to input your Customer type on the second page of the online registration form. The customer type category defines what type of hunter/trapper/angler/firewood collector you are.

* Please be aware of age restrictions. The iSportsman permit system is set up so that customer type groups have a corresponding age range and failure to sign up for your proper customer type could keep you from seeing all of the permits you are eligible for.
* Members of the general public are eligible for limited Big Game Hunting only and are ineligible for fishing, trapping, and all other hunting. General Public hunters registering for an account will not be approved until after the Public Hunting Lottery takes place.
** NOTE: As an individual attempting to sign up for an account to access a system to ultimately be able to hunt, fish, trap, or collect firewood on the West Point Military Reservation, it is your responsibility to:
1. UNDERSTAND AND REGISTER YOUR PROPER CUSTOMER TYPE.
2. LIST YOUR PROPER CONTACT INFORMATION.
Failure to do so will prevent site administrators from being able to verify your account and prevent you from being able to access iSportsman to purchase permits and check-in/check-out areas and so will prevent you from being able to hunt, fish, trap, or collect firewood on the West Point Military Reservation.
