The first hunting seasons in New York open on Thursday | News

ALBANY — September marks the start of several hunting seasons in New York, including squirrel and Canada goose beginning Thursday upstate, and the first bear and antlerless deer seasons beginning Sept. 10 on select units of wildlife management.

“The first hunting seasons are a great opportunity to guide and introduce new hunters to the hunt,” said Commissioner Basil Seggos. “The early bear, antlerless deer and September goose seasons are designed to reduce or stabilize wildlife populations in particular areas.”
