You would think that as a person who grew up in a home with hunters who hunted during small game season and deer season, that I would have an awareness of when popular hunting seasons were happening since I like to get outside and explore. NOPE. As a non-hunter, any hunting season is way off my radar.
A dead deer on the side of the road. It might be commonplace in most areas throughout the Capital Region but still, it's never an easy thing to see when you're taking a road trip. In most cases, you're able to chalk it up to a hungry deer that wandered too close to the road, or one that simply got seduced by the headlights of oncoming traffic.
Many New Yorkers have been taking advantage of getting outside and enjoying the outdoors and the Adirondacks. The proof is in the record number of hunting and fishing licenses and permits that have been purchased for the season.
