Youth hunters, ages 12-15, must possess a junior hunting license and be accompanied by a licensed adult hunter. Only junior hunters are allowed to possess a firearm or harvest birds during the special youth hunt weekend.

See DEC's Pheasant Release Sites webpage for information on release sites in your area.

Contact  Bureau of Wildlife

Under the close supervision of a licensed and experienced adult mentor, 14- to 15- year old junior hunters may use a firearm to take one deer of either sex with the appropriate licenses, tags and privileges. This youth hunt is open in Northern and Southern Zones, except in bow only areas.

Visit DEC's Junior Hunter Mentoring Program webpage for a complete list of details.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas. We welcome people with disabilities to all of our programs. Please call the contact number ahead of time to let us know your specific needs and we will be happy to learn how we can best serve you.

We would appreciate receiving feedback from our users. Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties viewing or using this calendar by sending an email to the DEC webmaster.
