Deer drive conducted to usher out whitetails at preserve enclosure in New York

Over 100 volunteers recently gathered to conduct a “deer drive” to remove deer from a 30-acre area about to be enclosed and preserved. The effort seeks to protect the future enclosure from deer so that native trees and vegetation can thrive.
The enclosure will be part of the nearly 100-acre Hillside, located near additional lands that make up approximately 300 acres of the Hillside Woods. The park and woods is a popular recreation area in the Westchester County village.

Dan Ladd: Turkey talking time has finally come in New York

While working the New York Outdoor News booth at the CNY Sportsman’s Show in Verona last month I was approached by a 20-something turkey hunter who questioned if New York’s spring turkey season should be held two weeks sooner than its current May 1-31 duration. I braced for the old “that’s when they’re easier to kill” routine when I asked him on what grounds he was offering his suggestion.
