I believe it should always be the weekend before thanksgiving.

I fixed it for you, lol.  Before the last change it was always the third Monday in November. This year is the earliest it can occur

I guess I just like it "being" No preference one way or another. It means we are cranking up camp, always a good thing.

we used to go out Friday night, bow hunt Saturday if I still had tags, party Saturday night, maybe hunt Sunday, then take it easy and watch some football, Monday opener. Now it's all business, get down there Friday and get everything ready to rock for the morning. I find it stressful!

Yes. Froze my a** off plenty of times, I'm ready to buy a tent blind & a propane heater. Just takes the wind out of my sails when I have to sit all day and be cold.

Gun Season, what time is it? It's time to get live, it's time to represent!

You can always tell the bow from the gun hunters haha. Let the orange army invasion begin!

Should be an interesting gun season. I think we will still be in rut, and we have two weekends of gun BEFORE Thanksgiving weekend. Also perfect weekend weather with a coating of snow possibly. A whole lot of deer are going to get killed

Lost my private land, hunting in a state park this year. Does the DEC have a rule as to how early (before sunrise) you can enter to get to your spot?

i believe you cannot have a firearm on you in the dark. Obviously someone can clarify but I don't recall if it matters if it's loaded or not. Obviously a silly rule.

if that's the case I am an outlaw, and I don't care. I always go in before light with a gun or bow

      The procedure below to carry the bow is detailed below:
      You have to use a cotton towel or something similar. You have to wrap it around the bowstring. Doing so ensures that it will not cause an injury with the bowstring coming in contact with your body. It will not be that sharp either. Once you cover the bowstring with the towel, you have to wear it like a sling. So that it will not fall away from your body. The best way to cover the bowstring is to use a large enough towel. You can wrap it around twice as well. When making a sling out of the cotton towel, you have to ensure that you tighten it to get a snug fit. In that case, it will not slip away. Consequently, it will remain in place. When using this technique to carry a bow on your back, it is essential to practice before going in the wilderness. Only when you can move briskly and without noise using the scanning mechanism should you go ahead with it. To remove the bow, you have to hold it at the bottom. After that, you have to slip it over your head as well as arm. Doing so ensures that you can remove it quickly. When trying to focus on a prey, you need to remove the bow quickly. The technique for removal that we have highlighted above can certainly help you do so.

      I'm new to the area and looking for some places to hunt  the next few weekends through bow/muzzleloader season. I'm living in New Paltz, and the place that seems the most promising to me so far is Vernooy Kill State forrest, and north into Sundown. Has anyone had any luck in these areas? Is there anywhere better in the area I should check out? Any info is welcome

      Hi Everyone,
      My name is Raul and I am a new hunter! I've been hunting public land for now, but have been suffering. I've done 2 10 hour sits at Kings Park and 3 10 hour sits at Rocky Point and haven't seen one deer. I use a treestand and use scent blocker. I also get there super early in the morning. I need help! I plan to go again this friday. I scouted Rocky point after the first day and always see sign and I try to hunt the areas, but no success. I hunt around 42 and 36 I think. If someone wants the exact spot I can send them it on a map. I am really just looking for help in any areas and everything. I have put so much effort yet all i want is to just see one that will keep moral up. Any help is really appreciated!

      Just want to relay an experience I had this weekend regarding hunting regulations and other hunters.
      I've had several  hunter's tell me last weekend(10/12/2020) that muzzleloader was open, it is not. I also had two other hunters last weekend confront me as to why my son was carrying around a rifle and hunting deer. I calmly explained the youth weekend and the rules around it. After that everything was cool and we continued our hunt.
      I know at the end of the day we're all trying to participate in a sport we love and maybe harvest some game. My thought is to just make sure you're up on your local hunting regulations. Not just so you are within the rules, but also so you can assert your right to be where you are, hunting the way you're hunting.
      I know when I have been operating outside of the regulations I have appreciated a person respectfully correcting my ignorance and I try to pay it forward by being informed and respectfully educating when required.
      Thanks for listening, off my SB...

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo
