Looks like we have some good news coming our way for New York State sportsmen.

The prices are going down for our licenses! This is not a misprint. The land of taxes and fees is going to start to charge less for us to hunt and fish. Live out of state? There is even better news.

Is He Schmoozing Us?

At first, I was excited about this news. On second thought, I think this may  be a diversion of sorts. Something about this seems "fishy" (no pun intended). Is the Governor trying to schmooze us gun owners? Or perhaps is he trying to attract people to buy licenses and make more money to support new laws/legislation? I had numerous calls from men and women that like to hunt/fish that seem to think that this is a cover up or some sort of "peace offering." What's the saying?? "If it appears too good to be true...it probably is??!"
