In NY we have a month of bow hunting, then a month of gun season. In the county I live in you can use a muzzle loder, shotgun, pistol or bow during the firearms season. Then we get 2 weeks of late bow/muzzle loder hunting.
As far as tags go, I get a buck tag for bow season a buck tag for the regular firearms season, then if I dont use the bow tag from the buck season it becomes a either sex tag for the late season. I got 4 doe tags for the season. My wife also got all of the same tags. I have only used 2 doe tags so far as my neighbor get some tags called DMAPS (15 of them) for his property.
I also have nusence tags from alot of the local farmers that I can use from march to august. My father inlaw gets 25 of these and you can hunt them with what ever you like until 11pm with a spot light.
Most of them are donated to a program for the neede here in NY. In the county I live there is some where in the area of 115 deer per square mile.
