Every year young hunters and hunters who
are young at heart gather at Stewart State Forest for a special Youth
Hunt Day. The NY DEC and the Federation coordinate this event and volunteer time
to help supervise and run the event. The volunteers have fun cooking and helping
the young hunters. Free food and fixings are provided. Several of our
members bring their dogs so that each group can hunt the fields in Stewart
that have been stocked with Pheasant and Quail. For many of the young
hunters, this is the first time that they have hunted with a dog. The
following are some of the general rules:
- ALL SAFETY RULES AND NY LAWS AND HUNTING LAWS MUST BE FOLLOWED AT ALL TIMES!
- ALL YOUTH HUNTERS MUST BE FROM 12 TO 15 YEARS OLD.

PLEASE CONTACT RON SANDROFF AT 914-475-7429 OR JIM TORCIVIA AT 845-467-5539. (We need this information in time so that we can know how many birds to stock. Birds will be stocked the day before the hunt with an additional two birds for each registered youth so please register.)
- ALL REGISTRANTS AND ACCOMPANYING ADULTS MUST SIGN A "HOLD FAULTLESS" WAIVER.

however that is not true for 2018.)
