Regulations regarding Hunting

As a reminder to residents, hunting is prohibited in any of the Town Conservation Areas/Trails. Hunting in Westchester County is regulated by NYSDEC. They require a hunting license for bow hunting and have restrictions on times and locations that bow hunting is permitted.

The NYSDEC website states that Bow Hunting is permitted with a license in Westchester County only from October 1 to December 31.

It is ILLEGAL to discharge a firearm, bow or crossbow:

so that the load or arrow passes over any part of a public highway,

within 500 feet (for a firearm), 250 feet (for a crossbow) or 150 feet (for a bow) of any school, playground, or an occupied factory or church,

within 500 feet (for a firearm), 250 feet (for a crossbow) or 150 feet (for a bow) of a dwelling, farm building or structure in occupation or use unless you own it, lease it, are an immediate member of the family, an employee, or have the owner's consent.

You MAY hunt waterfowl with a firearm or bow, over water, within 500 feet of a dwelling or public structure as long as neither are within 500 feet (for a firearm) or 150 feet (for a bow) in the direction you are shooting. You may not hunt waterfowl with a crossbow.

Residents who observe any suspicious activity are urged to contact the Town Police Department immediately.
