Hunting season starts Saturday

Nov 15, 2022 12:04 pm

New York's major hunting season begins Nov. 19. In the Southern Zone, which includes the Catskills, deer and bear hunting seasons continues through Dec. 11. After that, late bowhunting and muzzleloading seasons run from Dec. 12 through Dec. 20, and again from Dec. 26 through Jan. 1. "With most public land across New York State open to multiple forms of recreation, from hiking and nature photography to hunting and trapping, visitors should be cautious, courteous, and responsible when sharing the woods to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience," said Commissioner Basil Seggos. "DEC encourages all visitors to review the safety guidelines for hunting and recreating in the woods before going afield and respectfully sharing the outdoors with others." While hunters using a firearm must wear hunter orange or pink, the DEC suggests those colors might be good for family dogs too. See the New York Department of Environmental Conservation website for more information about hunting season in New York.
