Returning Registrants

        If you have registered with iSportsman before whether at FTIG or another installation you do not need to register again.  Each year, participants must watch the safety briefs and purchase permits to outdoor recreate at Fort Indiantown Gap. All registration information (address, phone, vehicles, etc) must remain current throughout the entire year.  If something has changed please log into your account and update it accordingly.  See the above paragraph for how to update your account details. 

Purchasing Permits

        If you are new to iSportsman you must first complete your registration.  After registration is complete two safety briefings are required to be completed before permits can be purchased.  Click on “My Safety Briefs” at the top and choose each one.  Play the video and once the briefings are complete there is an acknowledgment at the bottom of each video which you must answer and then click “Done”.  If the acknowledgment is not completed, permits will not be available for purchase. 

        After the safety briefs are viewed click “Available Permits”.  Permits should be available after both videos have been acknowledged.  Anyone wishing to participate in outdoor recreation must at minimum hold a “General Access” permit.  If you wish to access the corridor training areas during the 14 days of Regular Deer Firearms season you must also purchase a “Firearms Season Access” permit.  Firearms Season Access permit does not apply to the Cantonment areas. 

        It is required that outdoor recreation participants print out all permits acquired.  Permits must be carried at all times and be available for display when asked.  Permits can be printed from a participant's account home page.  Any questions should be directed to the email listed on the Contact Information page. 

        Permits are available each year starting in August and ending in May.  Fort Indiantown Gap Outdoor Recreation permits are valid from the day after Labor Day to the end of Spring Turkey Season each year.
