From The Glenns Falls Post Star:

_[New York r]eal estate agent David Collins still fondly remembers his dove hunting outings while stationed with the U.S. Army in Kentucky…. Unfortunately, he hasn’t hunted doves since, because New York does not allow dove hunting.

But Collins is among a group of bird hunters statewide that is making a push to convince state officials to create a dove season…._


_The sportsmen federations of Warren and Washington counties have gotten behind the movement, as have their counterparts in Greene and Columbia counties.

The New York State Conservation Council has also gotten on board, asking the state Department of Environmental Conservation to survey hunters on the issue…._

Collins said anyone interested in helping the effort is welcome. E-mail him at
