Small game hunting begins Saturday in New York

Sep 25, 2023 12:11 pm

Ben Mitchell reports for News10 that small game hunting seasons will begin this week on Oct. 1. Basil Seggos, Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Conservation, said, “From waterfowl and upland gamebirds to squirrels, rabbits, and more, there are abundant opportunities for hunters across New York State.... This year, hunters can enjoy even more waterfowl hunting opportunities, with an increase in mallard and Canada goose bag limits and an extended goose season.” There are also waterfowl zones with special hunting days for youth and members of the military. Ruffed grouse hunting runs until the last day of February, though the similar spruce grouse is a state-endangered species that is illegal to hunt. The DEC has a webpage with all the dates and regulations for small game hunting this year. Read more about this story at the News10 website.
