I just taught a Waterfowl ID class for my club. This was the largest class that I have taught. I had 26 people. BTW, students included two DEC biologists and a bay constable.
I hope that this signals a renewal in waterfowling interest on Long Island. At one time you had to be in the water well before sunrise and then fight for your spot. Now you have the whole bay to yourself.
If anyone on the forum has noticed a similar renewed interest I would love to hear about it. Maybe there is hope for the sport.
