Limitations are listed below.
1.Guns can only be loaded when hunters are in location and actively hunting (not walking across the park).
2.All shooting must be over the open water of the lake, no hunting on the actual park property or in the river (outlet).
3. Hunters must be on the edge of the water (below the high water mark) or in the water. Hunting from the lawns or beach areas are not permitted.
4). Hunters need to be aware that people could be walking the piers and avoid shooting in that direction.
5. Finally, all local New York State and Federal laws apply.
