MASSENA, NY — New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Officers (ECOs), in St. Lawrence County partnered with the Massena Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation to offer youth ages 12 to 15 an opportunity to hunt Waterfowl and Pheasant this fall. The event was hosted by the Massena Rod and Gun Club and sponsored by the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) and the New York Conservation Officers Association (NYCOA). Would also like to thank the Massena Rod and Gun Club, Potsdam Elks Club, Hoot Owl Enterprises, Tractor Supply, Walmart, and the Wilson Hill Wildlife Management Area for their assistance in making this happen.
