It's just about time for Bow season. Depending on where you are in New York it either starts on Sept 27 or on October 1, 2016. The NYS DEC released a statement this week saying that deer hunters might find themselves having more deer to hunt as the deer population across the state has increased.

Here is what the DEC Commissioner Basil Seggo had to say about hunting and more specifically bow hunting in New York State, via press release:

"Hunting opportunities in New York have never been better and the start of hunting season is an essential economic driver for communities across the state. Governor Cuomo's continued commitments to the NY Open for Fishing and Hunting initiative are bolstering our efforts to provide world class hunting opportunities for bowhunters statewide. With mild weather, longer days, and deer in early season feeding patterns, the early bow season is a great time to be in the woods. It's also a perfect opportunity to introduce new hunters to deer hunting."
