these pics of deer getting harvested are torture me and timber cant go till 10/16.new york started some talk 2 yrs ago about opening our archery on 10/1 but then never heard anything else about it dont understand why they dont open archery earlier.
We started here in NH on Sept 15th but they changed it to buck only till Oct 1st. I also hunt western NY will be heading out this year for archery for the first time (usually go during rifle) Hope it is better out there durng this time
Your gonna hate this.... but here in Missouri, we start bow season every year on September 15! (and for both buck and doe)
*if you want even more torture... take a look at the 10 pt buck i shot on September 26 (last sunday) in the bowhunting forums. :O)
Rifle season generally begins for Missouri around the middle of november-- this year it's November 13-23. Always lasts for 10 days. Bow season stops on the 12th of november, and picks back up on the 24th. We also have an antlerless rifle season after the November rifle season 13-23. It starts on the 24th and goes until the mid-december.
MOVE TO MISSOURI!!!! :O)
NH is usually buck or doe for bow but trying to inprove the heard
Our bow season goes from Sept 15-Dec 15
muzzle loader is Oct 30 - Nov 9
Rifle Nov 10 to Dec 5
what I like is I can go during rifle get a deer & be out the next day w/ the bow our bow season does not stop for the other seasons
You're gonna hate this too. Here in Montana, big game hunting starts with archery antelope on Aug. 15, and ends with the close of rifle deer/elk on Nov. 28, with winter mountain lion season ending on April 14, 2011. And how about this for real "torture": we have hunting season for 10 species of big game (eleven if the judges get their heads out of their a***s and let us resume wolf hunting). That's more huntable species than Alaska.
