The October 1st start date for Sounthern Zone New York Archery Opener has been approved.
"Beginning the Southern Zone bowhunting season and the regular season in Westchester County (bowhunting only) on October 1 and establishing a late bowhunting season concurrent with the late muzzleloader season in the Northern Zone. These changes will increase opportunities by several weeks for most New York bowhunters. "
This is from the NYDEC email I recieved.
