Albany, NY (WIBX) – Prospective bird hunters can start planning their hunting trips now, as tentative season schedules for most of New York’s migratory birds become available.

The Department of Environmental Conservation released season dates for several popular birds, including ducks, geese and snipe.

Though the finalized dates won’t be released until later this summer, DEC Commissioner, Joe Martens, says the schedules can assist hunters in “making plans for a safe and successful season.”

The only area currently without tentative dates is the Lake Champlain zone, whose schedule is set by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board.

Season dates for each bird can be found here. For more information regarding New York’s migratory birds, click here.
