Waterfowl season meetings slated for next month

D uck and goose hunters from New York and Vermont are encouraged to attend meetings next month on Lake Champlain’s waterfowl hunting season.

Under federal regulations, waterfowl seasons, bag limits and shooting hours in the Lake Champlain Zone must be uniform throughout the entire zone. Therefore, waterfowl seasons in New York’s portion of the Lake Champlain Zone must be identical to the waterfowl season in Vermont’s portion of the Zone.

Comments received at the August meetings, as well as input and recommendations from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation will be reviewed by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board.

The New York meeting will be on Aug. 7 at the Skenesborough Rescue Squad Building. The Vermont meeting will be on Aug 8 at the University of Vermont’s Billings Lecture Hall. Both meetings will be held from 7 to 9 p.m.

The meetings are organized by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation and the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.
