Suffolk county is fairly relaxed but check with Huntington town for specific municipal law In Nassau no discharge of any ag's except at gun ranges

longislandhunter:
Don gave you excellent advice.  Always check your local town/village/county laws.  Like Don said, no problem target shooting or small game hunting out here in Suffolk provided of course you have permission to be on the land and are a safe distance from any occupied dwellings, schools, etc.  One thing to keep in mind is that small game hunting is legal in NY provided you are using an air rifle that is at least .177 caliber and has a muzzle velocity of at least 600 FPS however the NYS Environmental Conservation Law authorizing air guns for small game hunting also states that when used to hunt with an air rifle is legally defined and classified as an "Firearm", just like a powder burner...... which means minimum 500 foot distance from dwellings, schools, etc, no shooting so the load/pellet will pass over or upon any roadway and of course none of those "things" that go on the end of the barrel that dampen noise.  Hope this helps you out.
