State hunters asked for input on waterfowl seasons

ALBANY — The state Department of Environmental Conservation is inviting hunters to make recommendations for the dates of the fall 2013 duck hunting seasons.

The agency recently appointed waterfowl hunter task forces for five hunting zones: Western, Southeastern, Northeaster, Lake Champlain and Long Island.

The task forces are seeking recommendations for season opening and closing dates, split seasons and a special hunting weekend for children age 12 to 15.

Suggestions can be sent to any task force member by April 5. Names and contact information are listed on the DEC website (http://bit.ly/Yyivva ).

The final waterfowl hunting season dates will be posted on the DEC website and announced in late August.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
