Do you like to go hunting, but are looking for a different place to go? Have you ever thought about going to a New York State Park to hunt? There are a few restrictions, but as long as you keep those in mind, you should be good to go.

What are the restrictions? In addition to needing your regular hunting license, you will also need to get a permit from the individual park that you are wanting to hunt at. That park permit will state whether you can use a crossbow, shotgun or bow, which game you can hunt, and any other restrictions you will need to keep in mind.
