Hunting Sales Cease during transition

NOTICE
 DEC will be switching to a new automated licensing system. Beginning December 26, 2013 there will be a blackout period for license sales and game harvest reporting as we transition to the new automated licensing system. Hunters, anglers and trappers need to purchase their licenses, stamps and permits and register for recreational marine fishing prior to December 26, 2013 in order to hunt, trap or fish during the blackout period. We expect the blackout period to last approximately one week. Hunters will be given a grace period to report their harvest of animals taken during the blackout period once the new system is up and running.


Thank you for your patience during our transition.

Wild Turkey Research

DEC SEEKING LANDOWNERS TO ASSIST WITH WILD TURKEY RESEARCH
Wild Turkey Survival Study to Begin in January;

Findings Will Improve Wild Turkey Management
Beginning in January, DEC will embark on a statewide effort to capture wild turkey hens and fit them with leg bands to obtain accurate data on survival and harvest. A small number of these birds will also be tagged with satellite radio-transmitters. All of the work will be done by DEC personnel on both public and private lands from January through March. The research will be concentrated in DEC Regions 3 through 9 where turkey populations are largest.

DEC is looking for landowners in DEC Regions 3 through 9 interested in allowing birds to be trapped on their land, as well as alerting project coordinators when they see turkeys on their property on a regular basis. Once turkeys are trapped and banded, they will immediately be released at the same location. Not all locations are suitable for deploying capture equipment, so landowners should contact their regional project coordinator to discuss the suitability of their property. Observations of turkey flocks during January through March can be reported to the project coordinator for that region or can be reported using the Winter Flock Survey form found on DEC's website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/48756.html.

For more information on this project, contact the regional project coordinator below or DEC by e-mail at fwwildlf@gw.dec.state.ny.us. "Turkey Study" should be listed as the subject line in any e-mails.
