msbadger, when exactly is "shot gun season"? I have run into more guys over the years who refer to this mysterious non-existent season in NY. There is no shotgun "season" in NY,(see link) though there is this old long standing belief that you can use a shotgun during ML season, which nothing could be further from the truth, but some still insist that you can. I'd like to see it in writing....and I don't mean the Long Island so called "firearm season" stipulation either. I'm referring to the rest of the state. You may be in LI in which case I'd understand why you'd say that.
I dont see "shotgun season" listed.
But on the other hand I'm with you on saving money. I can't figure why during a year when NYS received $26.7 B
illion dollars in federal "stimulus" project funding why they find it just to stick it to us with the most absurd fee increases ever seen. With all the lost sportsmen across the state i fail to see where they figure they will raise more funds through the increases. I'm willing to bet that 2009/2010 they show a loss in revenues over past years. Thanks Pete Grannis you anti hunting piece of crap. You should have never been appointed in the first place you liberal SOB.
