The cooler air is finally moving in to the region and for those who love to hunt deer, the season is now just days away. Here in New York State, the archery season for deer hunters in most locations will start on October 1st.

The hunting season in New York State is one of the most exciting times of the year. As we see the leaves change and drop and the snow and frost start to take over, watching the deer patterns and habits change is enough to get any hunter up and out of bed early in the morning.

But not everyone looks forward to deer season. For the die-hard hunters, it means that there are long days in the woods away from family and friends. It means that an avid hunter may be gone for weeks to their hunting camp and land or favorite tree stand or blind. Things may not get done around the house and some family events may suffer as a result of the time spent in the woods.

I found this letter on TikTok and makes so much sense and it is a great way to let those close to you know what they can expect from now until the season ends.

There are still some classes open for those who want to get their certificates to get their hunting license before the start of the season. Archery hunting is a great way (maybe the best) to hunt deer here in New York State. Most archery hunters are stealth-like and get in to deer areas without detection. It is an amazing way to see the deer in their own environment without being noticed and gives you an great opportunity to kill a nice whitetail!
