DEC Announces Closure of All Target Shooting Activity at Tonawanda Wildlife Management Area
Closure Takes Effect Feb. 1
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced that beginning Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022, target shooting will be prohibited at Tonawanda Wildlife Management Area (WMA), located in DEC’s Regions 8 and 9. The closure will bring the WMA into compliance with recently adopted regulations for WMAs statewide that prohibit target shooting.
DEC adopted statewide regulations following a public comment period last year and is exploring additional options to provide safe and ecologically sound target shooting at alternative locations throughout the state.
