    Default Propose NY deer hunting seasons 2011-2015

    This morning I was alerted to proposed changes to the deer hunting season. A search of the DEC website turned up this document:
    http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/wildlife_...erplan0611.pdf

    Go to page 35 (southern zone) and page 36 (northern zone) - chk the calendars to see an easy-to-understand presentation of the changes.

    Am I late to the game, or has this been overlooked? At first glance, it looks like a minimal impact. Any comments??

    Ted, moving the bow season in the southern zone to a 10/1 start date has been being discussed for a while now. Other than that I had heard nothing about other major changes.

    This looks like maybe they are adding a week to the northern zone regular rifle season. It's always ended the first Sunday of December... and this shows it on the 2nd. Sunday of the month. If that is true the hunter in me says he_ _ yeah!!!

    Well I see this titled as "TRAIL CONDITIONS"
    Are we talking about deer trails or snowmobile trails.

    HUH??

    As a general rule, snowmobile trails do NOT open until the end of deer season (gun). SO... this would effect snowmobile trails.

    OK Thanks as I don't live or hunt in NY
    Don't think this will effect Old Forge then. Am I right?
