DEC Proposes Special Christmastime Deer Season

The New York DEC recently issued a proposed change to its agency rules that would establish a special bow and muzzleloader deer season in the Southern Zone in December. If approved, the season would run during the Christmas and New Year holiday week. The proposed regulations also run the regular deer season for 23 days beginning on the 3rd Saturday in November.

This rulemaking will provide additional opportunity for New York deer hunters and their families by creating a second portion of the late bow and muzzleloading deer seasons in the Southern Zone, adding the holiday week of December 26 through January 1.

DEC, in support of its rule change, noted that during the Christmas to New Year holiday week families gather, many people are off from work, and students are on school break. This provides time for families to hunt together, share memories and make new ones, and gather venison for the next year. This new opportunity is consistent with the department’s efforts to recruit, retain, and reactivate […]

SCOPE-NY’s State Senate Warning

Ten X does not endorse any particular gun-rights organization or any particular political candidate.

New York State Senate

Prior to 2018, Republicans usually had control of the New York State Senate. This somewhat offset the heavily New York City based gun grabbers in the Assembly and the Governor’s office. Republicans were the only defense against the gun grabbing left and when they lost the Senate majority, in a landslide in 2018, the gun grabbers came out in force.

In October, when SCOPE reviewed […]

Indoor Range Summer Projects – 2020

Hello everyone,

There are a number of projects that need to be done to keep the indoor range in good shape. Each member has a work obligation to the club of 6 hours of volunteer time per year.

NYS Offering Hunter Safety Course Online due to COVID

Member Alan W. passed along a press release that may be of use for some of our members:

Due to the State of Emergency created by the COVID-19 outbreak, the New York State DEC is offering for a limited time a complete online hunting safety education course.

First-time hunters must first earn a hunter education certificate prior to purchasing their first hunting license. The certificate is then good for all future purchases of hunting licenses.

The DEC, in its press release said, “Unfortunately, all traditional hunter education courses have been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, leaving many new hunters unable to get a certificate before spring turkey season”. The statewide regular spring turkey hunting season is set from May 1-31, and the youth (ages 12-15) turkey hunting weekend on April 25-26. “Students who complete the online course and virtual field day, and pass the final exam, will receive their hunter education certificate and can purchase a hunting license,” DEC said.
