Governor Andrew Cuomo's NY Open for Fishing and Hunting initiative expands opportunities for both resident and visiting sportsmen and sportswomen by making it easier for more people to enjoy the state's unsurpassed outdoor recreational resources. These 50 new land access projects connect hunters, anglers, bird watchers and others who enjoy the outdoors to more than 380,000 previously untapped acres of state and conservation easement lands. Projects include building new boat launches, improving informational signage, installing new hunting blinds, and building new trails and parking areas.
