I realize this is off topic for NY Rare Birds, but it concerns  all who enjoy 
Suffolk County Parks and DEC Land in Suffolk.  

The DEC is proposing an extension of the current two-day Wild Turkey Hunt 
Season in May, to a season which would extend from 1-31 May, beginning in May 
2023.  Although this does not affect upstate, NYC or Nassau County birding 
locations, it has an enormous impact on Suffolk County locations - including 
Rocky Point, Preston Ponds, Hunters Garden, Pine Meadow, Camp Hero, Montauk 
parks, and other well-visited birding locations in the County.  It will also 
have a major impact on collecting data for the current Breeding Bird Atlas.

Information on the proposed Amendments can be found on :  
DEC.NY.GOV/regulations/propregulations.html.    The Amendment is : 6CRR-NY1-40 
(Hunting Wild Turkey).

Comments on the proposal will be accepted through 5 JUNE 2022, and should be 
addressed to:  willdlifer...@dec.ny.gov,  with  Proposed Turkey Regulations in 
the Subject Line.

Please read and send your comments to the DEC before the above deadline.  

Thank you -
