Proposed amendment of Section 1.31 of Title 6 NYCRR, "Hunting Black Bear"
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Bureau of Wildlife, will conduct a public hearing on the proposed amendment of Section 1.31 of Title 6 NYCRR, "Hunting Black Bear". This rulemaking is necessary to expand the areas open for black bear hunting in an effort to better manage New York's black bear population, and to provide additional opportunities for hunters to harvest black bears. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was published in the September 15, 2004 issue of the State Register (http://www.dos.state.ny.us/info/register/2004/sept15/toc.htm).
The meeting will be held at Cornell Cooperative Extension, 34570 St Hwy 10, Hamden, NY 13782, October 5, 2004, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM. This meeting is open to the public.
