The fall is almost officially here and beyond the excitement of the kids going to school and the start of high school sports and football season is the thrill of the beginning of the hunting season in New York State.

If you are interested in archery, and hunting in New York State, you will need a license and to take a course. The good news is that there are options. One very popular option is the online course.

Bow hunting, like the regular hunting season, has gotten very popular over the last couple of years. As the COVID-19 pandemic kept more people at home and away from their jobs, many people returned to the outdoors to hunt. Bow hunting is special. It is probably the most primitive form of hunting and is by far the most exciting. Watching deer in their natural habitat and getting with just a few yards of them is a thrill, with or without a kill.

The archery/bow hunting season begins October 1st here in the Western New York. There are a few places that you can attend a bow hunter safety class around the area. CLICK HERE to see the one closest to you. I wouldn't wait to sign up. These classed do fill up quickly and with the surge of new hunters, the registrations are selling out faster than ever.

Best of luck this season. From what I have seen scouting and on cameras, there sure are plenty of deer and good bucks traveling the woods these days.
