Nope, no refunds. You can transfer the lifetime license to another New York State resident if the person holding the license dies within one year of the original license being issued.

Can you put the lifetime hunting indication on your drivers license or must you always carry a separate card?

You can do both. If you want to get the lifetime hunting license indication on your drivers license you will need to fill out a form, pay a few dollars and then the DMV will send you a new license. You can also just carry your hunting license with you when you go hunting. Best of luck with hunting season.
