    Does anyone know what the '09 woodchuck regs are for NY? If they could let me know or post a link. I couldn't find anything on NYDEC's website.

    Thanks.

    Protected Wildlife

    In New York State, nearly all species of wildlife are protected. Most species, including endangered species, songbirds, hawks and owls are fully protected and may not be taken.


    "The few unprotected species include porcupine, red squirrel, woodchuck, English sparrow, starling, rock pigeon, and monk parakeet. Unprotected species may be taken at any time without limit. A hunting license is required to hunt unprotected wildlife with a bow or firearm."
