I am new to archery hunting on Long Island (I generally hunt rifle season upstate). Where in Suffolk would you recommend a newbie go? I am looking to hunt a few weekends out east. Any and all advice is welcome.

Thanks

As A new bow hunter to long island I recommend you go out to Ridge they will assign you a spot to hunt
you will turn in your hunting License to them and they will give you a arm band when you return to the cabin you will get your License back and return to them the arm band
Good luck with your Long Island Hunt

Take Papabear's advice but also get your seasonal pass from the DEC and get your feet on the ground out there NOW. Scout , Scout , and scout some more. Hit as many spots as you can between now and the season opener. You dont know which spot will be available so having a few choices is a must. There are a ton of deer out here but you have to do your homework . My hunting season started 2 weeks ago. I'm covered in chigger bites and probably have west nile but I will shoot a 130 or better again this year!

Contact DEC out in stonybrook and get an access permit for DEC lands  they will give you a map of hunting areas with parking areas and a tag for your car. I believe bow hunting you don't have to check in at ridge but if you tag a deer you do

DEET works well for a lot of bugs but you need pyrethrins to repel ticks, BNL's resource manager did a lot of field work on what's effective
