Late muzzleloading season in the Southern Zone continues to be later than ever. For the third year (since 2021), New York’s holiday-week hunt – which allows hunters in most of the Southern Zone to use a muzzleloader, bow or crossbow – is set for Dec. 26 through Jan. 1.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation implemented the hunt in 2021. DEC’s goal for creating the hunt was to allow families, particularly young hunters, more time in the woods together.
