Hummm, New York & the Endangered Species Act

Hummmm, New York & the ESA

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the ESA it stands for Endangered Species Act.

I attended a state wide sportsmen meeting this past weekend where the DEC’s top leaders presented the annual DEC report and other news worthy items.

I think I may have been the only person to pick up on Patricia Rexinger’s comment about NY’s plans to revise, review and update NY’s involvement in the ESA.

The ESA covers approximately 1,800 species worldwide of which 1,300 are in the United States. I’ve asked many times why only 1,300 in the good ol USA.

Well let’s see where this leads NY’s sportsmen. I can only hope when the updates start we are given protections from lawsuits by antis because some part of the ESA was violated, specifically the “take & harass” portions. Least we end up like some other states, spending our conservation dollar$ fighting the antis to protect land where both hunted species and endangered both exists.

I’ve written on this subject in the past warning folks it was over due in NY & was and still to this day folks act like they never heard of the ESA. LMAO

More doom and Gloom:
Commissioner Grannis spoke about the current affairs of NY’s budget and how it will effect the DEC and sportsmen this past weekend.

An invitation as extended for next week ,so I’m headed to Albany on my own dime to meet with the DEC Commissioner & the leaders of NY’s sportsmen’s associations about our most important issues facing us in the very near future.

Final nail er a note; NY is now ripe for an anti surge!
