    if NY knew anything they'd have it like FL -just don't shoot in a dangerous direction and be on 2 acres with the bow. I know guys who hunt in this suburb...they just point their guns to the forest out their back porch instead of towords civiliztion in front.

    Its 500 feet from any dwelling unless you own it or have permission. All the information is available at the dec website
