Spiker, looks like Oct. 13 in the South Zone, Sept. 27 in the North Zone if you have an unfilled tag from last year, if not Oct. 1.

Last I heard it was a go for October 1st in the southern zone. The NY DEC webpage is horribly slow to get updated with the correct information.

Updated: Technically its still a proposed change for October 1st but it should be approved before deer season begins.

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.

2-3 more weeks of Bow Hunting for us Southern Zoners!!
