The state Department of Environmental Conservation will release about 30,000 adult pheasants on public lands open for hunting in advance of the fall season.

The pheasant hunting season begins Oct. 1 in northern and eastern portions of New York, Oct. 19 in central and western portions, and Nov. 1 on Long Island.

The Day-Old Pheasant Chick Program provides additional opportunities for pheasant hunters. This year, more than 41,000 pheasant chicks were distributed statewide as part of this program. Anyone interested in raising and releasing pheasants to expand next year’s hunting opportunities should call DEC’s Reynolds Game Farm at 607-273-2768.

Information about the hunting season can be found at www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/8363.html.
