I read an :-[article in the in the new York outdoor news. What a bunch of BS. This is the first year that bow season has started on the 1St. Bow Hunters are being selfish and saying that the youths should only be allowed to shoot does. So now that it coincides with bow season this may Be the last youth hunt for the state of NY. Something has to be done about this. I also hunt with the bow, rifle and pistol.
I'm for the kids. So should everyone else. They are the future.......
I love the fact that bow opend oct 1 in the southern zone this year. We have had an oct 1 opener up here for years. As an avid bow hunter i strongly dissagree with what the bow hunters association is trying to do as far as the youth hunt and crossbows. The youth are the future of hunting and trapping if we dont get them involved in it at an early age they will become preoccupied with something else. I am 100% for the youth huntlet these kids go out and feel that heart pounding rush we have had the joy of experiencing and they will be hooked forever. The state says they dont have any money well i say open crossbow during archery season and charge an extra fee for that licence.

this is what i think the state should do to put all the crying to a end in hopes this pleases everyone..state wide bow oct1-11 then youth gun adult muzzleloader buck/doe oct 12-13th then go into bow and xbow season oct13-nov15 then into gun nov16-24 and last into late bow xbow muzzleloader nov25-30.... drop it down to one buck per year per person statewide i dont know about other parts of the state but this year 2013 in steuben county iv had my trail cams out since may turkey season and see about 30-40 does per buck and thats way off from the 1 to 1 deer ratio that some other big buck states have...just my thoughts
I've been an avid bow hunter for 21 years and I also gun hunt. More and more kids these day are getting into other things and not hunting, The youth of today is the future of our sport tomorrow. As a father of four I love to see the passion for the outdoors in my kids eyes. To hear someone say we didn't get a youth hunt make them wait like we had to, is just plain selfish. If I have to give up my whole deer season just to help my kids get their first deer than so be it.

barney: My dad or any of the trappers who lived around Piseco never washed their traps with anything. He my brother and Don caught many mink, beaver, and muskrats. Dad and Don would lay out the skins on the attic floor while my brother was in school.
