Hunting is managed by the NYSDEC for traditional recreational pursuit and for wildlife management purposes. The Pittman-Roberston Act (1937) taxes hunting equipment and is matched by state hunting license fees. The money funds NYSDEC and other state agencies for wildlife management for projects (research, wildlife reintroductions and improving wildlife habitat). Hunters also raise fund through clubs for conservation purchase of open space and it management including restoration efforts. Poaching, illegal hunting, is another matter.
