  2. We still have to keep the pressure up on this issue, I have had sportsmen tell me that it only affects state lands, but lands public and private all around the nyc reservoirs also is impacted. Call your senators to oppose this

  5. Remember what Pataki did,he caved to the anti's, Clinton assault weapons bill had a sunset clause of 3 years. We had not once but twice a chance to change this,but thru no fault of ours in trying to get sportsman to get out and vote. I cant believe the voters in this state are that nieve to vote this chump in again not once but three times And then have someone talk against the NRA does not make sense,if not for them we could not own a pea shooter
  6. We had tons of those to hand out at Federation meetings and county fairs,now its all on the web

  8. Paul,You can scout out Ninham Mnt. in Carmel,that is a state forest and has DEP lands that ajoin it,also Fahnstock state park is good for turkeys and muzzle loader deer.but you have to get a permit from the park superintendents office located at rte.301 just west of the Taconic parkway.Dont wait till the last minute to get the permit .

  11. And no where in these pages did I see any one promoting any of the second amendment groups.One even willing to pay for re- certification,NYSRPA,SCOPE,GOA,NRA,NYSCC,all working to protect our gun rights. These groups all need financial support They are working for you mostly unpaid.Their dues are not excessive.If any one belongs to NYSRPA did you read the message from the president,the answer was right there.Gun owners and hunters did not turn out and vote.there was no excuse,we could have had Astorino as our governor today instead we re-elected coumo again.This coming November is very important get out and register to vote if you have not voted in a while,schumer and gilerbrand are not gun friendly.Some Federations and clubs are putting voter registration in local gun shops,stop in and grab one and fill it out and send it in. Sportsman we are losing ground every week,there are changes coming that some will not be happy about because of other users slowly but surely creeping in.become informed,go on the DEC web site and see what is going on,subscribe to NYON ,read the outdoor columns in your local papers and become informed...Ray Merlo

  17. What amazes me is that something as important as this only got one reply,still need comments from the so called concerned sportsman,all they have to do is google Boreas Pond and read what is happening.there are thousands of acres involved. We have to get them classified wild forest not forever wild.Only 1 percent of the people will get to use these lands,the older generation and the handicapped will be shut out...Ray

  19. Advocating for Conservation and Sportsmen Since 1933 ECO shot in Town of Gallatin, Columbia County (DEC Region 4); hospitalized in Poughkeepsie Published reports say a New York State environmental conservation officer is hospitalized with a gunshot wound suffered while investigating reports of illegal hunting in the Town of Gallatin (Columbia County) on Tuesday evening. The Department of Environmental Conservation says two of its enforcement officers were checking out reports of possible illegal hunting around 5 p.m. Tuesday. Gallatin is about 15 miles north of Pine Plains (Dutchess County). Officers and Investigators from Columbia County (Region 4) and Dutchess County (Region 3) were on the scene. One of the two ECOs investigating the possible illegal activity was shot in the upper leg or hip during the course of his investigation. The officer underwent surgery at MidHudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie and is listed in stable condition. WNYT-TV reports the man who shot the officer was charged Tuesday night with assault. He's being held in Columbia County jail without bail. The hunter - while apparently properly licensed - was hunting after legal shooting hours. The New York State Conservation Council, Inc., hopes for a speedy recovery for the wounded officer. We recognize the danger our ECOs place themselves in each and every time they respond to an even seemingly routine call. We are confident that there will be a thorough investigation and that all appropriate charges will be applied.
