NY biologists seek hunter recommendations on fall 2014 waterfowl hunting season

Share/Save/Bookmark

ALBANY, New York — The state Department of Environmental Conservation is asking hunters to submit recommendations to its regional task forces for the dates of the fall 2014 duck hunting seasons by April 4.

New York is divided into five waterfowl hunting zones: Western, Southeastern, Northeastern, Lake Champlain and Long Island. DEC recently appointed task forces for each zone except Lake Champlain to solicit recommendations for the fall hunting season. That includes opening and closing dates, split seasons and a special hunting weekend for junior hunters.

Waterfowl seasons in the Lake Champlain Zone will continue to be set by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Management Board, with input from DEC and waterfowl hunters in New York and Vermont.
