I dont know how many of you are from the southren zone of N.Y. but I was wondering what ever body thinks about them swithcing from shotgun to rifle??? I personally think its a bad idea. I think the reason there are some nice bucks at least in Stueben county where I hunt is becuase your distance you can shoot is limited. Also I think there is going to be a lot of dead flat landers on the state lands .

I know there are two counties that have switched to rifle but I am pritty sure that most of the southren zone NY is shotgun. I dont know much about the south east tip of NY that your in. Where I hunt its the south west corner of NY. its shot gun.

Most of the areas around me anyway are open to all firearms......and we dont have a rifle or shotgun or firearms season.....we have Regular season....so any legal hunting implement....bow, muzzleloader, shotgun, rifle, hand gun, dodge, ford, chevy......I cut things up and split them down!

I'm in the south east...It's almost all rifle here except for Dutchess, Putnam and Rockland Co's (shotgun)and Westchester Co.(archery only)
I prefer rifle to shotgun, but that's me...
I think they should extend the season into January...

I had 5 tags going to NY stueben county about 3 years ago(1 buck, 4 doe). I will have to agree that they need to lay off a little.
