New Shotgun Restrictions

Attention Hunters: Effective immediately, Louden Point and Big Peninsula Recreation Units located in Westchester County at the Kensico Reservoir will no longer be open for Hunting with shotgun.

These areas are now Archery hunting only. Fishing, and fishing by boat are unaffected by this change.

Louden Point and Big Peninsula will continue to be open to fishing, fishing by boat and archery hunting with a DEP Access Permit and the appropriate New York State sporting license.

This change is necessary to enhance the safety of DEP Personnel and Contractors working in these areas during low light conditions. Temporary signage advising of this change will be posted at points of entry into these two areas until permanent signage can be fabricated and installed.
