And of course check out the main Deer Hunting forum here - Waterfowl Hunting Seasons Provide Diverse Opportunities across the State The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos announced today the final season dates and updated regulations for 2016-17 waterfowl hunting.
For the first time, the Southeast Zone (October 1) will open prior to the Northeast Zone (October 8).
The Southeast task force sought to provide early opportunity for locally-nesting and early-migrating ducks by starting the season on October 1.
A special conservation season for snow geese, in addition to the regular hunting seasons in each zone, will be open in all of Upstate New York from January 16 through April 15.
These birds have become so abundant that they are causing harm to wetland habitats throughout their range.
We are only a day away from the 2016 Regular Gun Season for the Southern Zone, the Northern Zone kicked off their Season a few weeks back.
Goose and Brant Season Overview: The September Canada goose seasons begin on September 1 throughout Upstate New York, and on September 6 for central and eastern Long Island, providing an additional 50 days to pursue these popular game birds during this fall and winter.
Resident geese remain abundant in many areas of the state with the population estimated to be approximately 240,000 birds statewide, and migratory populations that pass through New York were estimated to be similar to recent years.
Sea ducks may still be taken during the regular duck season throughout New York State, and sea ducks will count toward the regular duck limit.
Also, crippled sea ducks may still be legally taken under power in the previously described “Special Sea Duck Area.” A full explanation of hunting season rationales, developed by the hunter task forces, can be found at:
