Shooting on "public" land anywhere near me is risky since even the DEC can't definitively say one way or the other whether it's legal. (I placed about a dozen calls and spoke to a bunch of people. I got told everything from "sure, go ahead" to "no, there's no shooting except hunting during season with a permit" to "go ahead, but don't be surprised if a cop shows up".) So I shoot on a friend's private land and at a club. But it sure would be nice to be able to drive to a remote area and break out the .22 or AR. Is shooting OK on public land in NYS where you are?
