Town rejects more duck hunting at New York’s Vischer Ferry Nature & Historic Preserve

Signage near a car-top boat launch at the Vischer Ferry Nature Preserve on the Mohawk River in Clifton Park, in Saratoga County, indicates that no hunting is allowed. Waterfowl hunters challenged a town rule that only permits hunting for one week during October, saying the town has no right to limit hunting there. (Photo provided)
A group of waterfowl hunters seeking to expand the duck hunting season at Vischer Ferry Nature & Historic Preserve, on the Mohawk River in Saratoga County have had their request denied by the town supervisor. Clifton Park Town Supervisor Phil Barret wrote that “we have conducted a sufficient overview of the situation. At this time, the town will not be taking steps to open hunting for the entire season as you have requested."
