ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is accepting public comments through June 29 on regulatory proposals for hunting and trapping of wild turkey, deer and fisher.

The agency is proposing to adjust fall turkey hunting seasons by limiting the season to two weeks with a bag limit of one bird of either sex for the season. The change is in response to long-term declines in turkey populations.

DEC is proposing modifications of antlerless deer hunting seasons in portions of western and southeastern New York and Long Island, and changes to the Deer Management Assistance Program procedures statewide.

The agency proposes reducing the fisher trapping seasons in northern New York and opening a limited new fisher trapping season in central and western New York.

The proposals are detailed on the DEC website (https://on.ny.gov/1JB27Sj ).
