The  NYSSA has submitted comments to the NY Department of Environmental Conservation on their proposal to  add an  extra week of hunting deer by longbow and muzzle loading to the regular  deer hunting season in the Southern Zone.   The week added would be from December 26 through  January 1 of each year.   At the request of may landowners,  the added week would prevent clubs from finalizing the preparation of trails and interfere with what could be the opening of the snowmobile season when many families choose to ride together.   NYSSA’s full comments can be read  here.    Snowmobilers are asked to write the Department and share their opposition.   Send an email to  jeremy.hurst(at)  .
