Today, Saturday, November 2 is opening day for using a crossbow to take deer and bear in the Southern Zone in NY. It runs concurrent with the long-established early archery season, until both seasons close the day before regular gun season for big game. This year regular gun season begins at sunrise on November 16.

Crossbows offer some definite advantages as far as ease of operation when compared to compound bows. Becoming proficient with even the most advanced model compound can take weeks, if not months of practice. Crossbows are much easier to learn to shoot.
