Afternoon turkeys: Should New York follow Pennsylvania’s lead?

I’ve hunted spring turkeys in both New York and Pennsylvania ever since there was a spring season. Up until 10 years ago, hunting hours in both states ended at noon and that was fine with me. Pounding the boonies in search of a gobbler from dawn till noon was about all I cared to do. Although New York still requires hunters to be out of the woods by noon, beginning May 15 Pennsylvania allows spring turkey hunting from one-half hour before sunup until one-half hour after sundown.

New York angler boats 55-pound striper from Hudson River

May 2 is a day Zach Schubert is not likely to forget. Schubert, 37, of Earlton, N.Y., is an avid fisherman. He was able to accomplish his “catch of a lifetime,” hauling in a 55-pound Hudson River striped bass that measured 50¾ inches.
Getting on the Hudson right after work that day, Schubert anchored his center console boat in approximately 20 feet of water in Catskill.

Leo Maloney receives Pass It On Award from New York State Outdoor Writers Association

Long-time outdoor writer Leo Maloney, of Sherrill, is this year’s recipient of the 2023 New York State Outdoor Writers Association’s “Pass It On” Award.
Each year, NYSOWA selects a member who is recognized as someone who should be acknowledged for their dedication to “Pass It On.” This annual award honors the person who has done the most to “pass on” our outdoor heritage.

George Gedney, promoter of New York’s youth hunting and shooting sports, presented with M. Paul Keesler Award

In 2017, the New York State High School Clay Target league was looking to expand beyond its start-up efforts in the central New York and the 1000 Islands regions. That year, the league found willing participants in schools in the northeastern part of the state and the expansion since that time has been nothing short of exceptional.
While there’s been a lot of hands in the fire to make it all happen, there is one person that many agree has led the charge a little harder, helping to make the NYSHSCL the success it currently is. That person is Queensbury (Warren County) resident George Gedney, who was recently honored by the New York State Outdoor Writers Association at the group’s spring conference, held in Corning (Steuben County). Gedney is the 2023 recipient of NYSOWA’s M. Paul Keesler New York Outdoor Citizen Award.
