Apologies in advance for the cross-posting, but there are some who subscribe to just one or two lists.
Heres a heads-up: The early Canada Goose hunting season opens for most of New York State tomorrow, Sept. 1st. The season for most of Long Island and Lake Champlain starts Sept. 4th. The early season runs through Sept. 24th or 25, depending on the region.
In addition, Snipe, Rails and Gallinule season opens Sept. 1st except on Long Island where there is no open season on these birds.
For details check the NYS DEC information page at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/wildlife_pdf/wfregsguide12.pdf
There you will find out the permitted license requirements, hunting hours, bag limits, and other details.
