The dates haven't changed much from last year. However, there have been changes to some bag limits.

The Bag Limit for canvasbacks has been increased from one bird per day to two
The bag limit for sea ducks has been reduced from seven to six in the Special Sea Duck area on Long Island. Additional species restrictions have been put in place as well.

The bonus daily bag limit for sea ducks has been eliminated in the Special Sea Duck zone

Youth hunts for junior hunters raging from 12-15 years of age,  have had their dates set as follows:

Northeastern Zone - September 19-20
Lake Champlain Zone - September 26-27
Southeastern Zone - September 19-20
Western Zone - October 3-4
Long Island Zone - November 14-15

September Canada goose seasons begin September 1 throughout upstate New York, and on September 8 for central and eastern Long Island.

The price of the Federal duck Stamp, required by all waterfowl hunters 16 years or older, has increased from $15 to $25. Don’t forget to sign them before they are valid for hunting.
