Dan Ladd: Another era in sporting licenses about to begin in New York

We’re about a month away from entering yet another new era in regard to sporting licenses in New York. When they go on sale for the 2024-25 seasons, which is typically in early August, it will now be up to sportsmen to decide not so much how, but who will print your licenses.
Two ongoing topics we covered in the June 28 edition relate to this.

Colleagues remember writer, New York conservationist Bill Conners

The passing of Bill Conners, 78, of Pleasant Valley, has left a void in New York’s sporting community. Conners passed away suddenly June 17 at his home

ProcellaCOR treatments approved in three Adirondack lakes to combat Eurasian watermilfoil

At its June Agency meeting, the Adirondack Park Agency Board approved four permits authorizing the use of ProcellaCOR in three different Adirondack lakes to combat Eurasian watermilfoil.
Two permits authorize the Lake George Park Commission to make one-time applications of ProcellaCOR EC in Lake George’s Sheep Meadow Bay and Blair’s Bay in the lake’s Northern Basin. Another authorizes the Town of Willsboro to make a one-time application in Highlands Forge Lake, and approximately 120 acre lake in Essex County, near Lake Champlain.

New York DEC expands sponsored pheasant hunt program

A little more than a year after the avian flu devastated the Richard E. Reynolds Game Farm – the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s sole pheasant raising facility – the agency is eager to get the word out about its expanding sponsored hunts program.
DEC’s sponsored hunts are free, non-competitive events coordinated by groups, clubs, individuals, or organizations to benefit youth, women, first-time hunters, veterans and people with disabilities.

Battle with round gobies intensifies in New York after eDNA is detected in Champlain Canal

One of the biggest potential concerns involving an aquatic invasive species in New York could be literally moving closer to becoming a reality.
Both the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the State Canal Corporation have gone into what they term “rapid response mode” following the positive eDNA detection of round gobies in the Hudson River/Champlain Canal. The location of the detection was at Lock C-2 in Halfmoon, north of Albany.

Dan Ladd: A lifetime of camping together is a life well-lived

Adrienne and I are not summer people. Neither of us are fans of the heat. I’ll take plowing snow over mowing a lawn any day of the week and both of us prefer the change of seasons so prevalent during the spring and fall months than to any other time of the year.
One activity, however, that we do get the most out of each summer is camping, and all the extras that come with it. Fishing, paddling and simply relaxing by a lake and/or campfire certainly helps us get through the summer, unless it’s extremely hot.

Dan Ladd: Scholastic shooting sports are too good to let go

Coming up July 10-14 nearly 130 New York student athletes will head to Michigan to compete in the USA High School Clay Target League national competition. As you’ll see from this story, the New York league continues to grow, which it has been doing steadily for nearly a decade, something that’s been a pleasure to watch.
As a local outdoor newspaper columnist at the time, I can clearly recall a meeting I attended for the purpose of getting scholastic clay target teams started here in the Southern Adirondack region. Similar efforts were in the works elsewhere in New York.
