The New York State Department of Conservation has announced that a record number of licenses have been sold ahead of the start of big and small game season.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made us all think getting outside. Hunting is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors and fill your freezer. The recent shortage of available meats put a bit of fear in to people and, if you love organic food, venison and other wild game meats are perfect!

I have been hunting since October of 19992 and although I am not the most successful hunter, hunting season is something I look forward to all year! I purchased a lifetime license and it is something I am considering for my boys as well. I plan on introducing them to hunting and a lifetime license is a great investment for them.

Best of luck this season and most importantly, stay safe! With the added volume of hunters in the woods, safety is the most important priority of anyone who plans to hunt this fall.
