    Okay then. We're doomed.
    He is in Buffalo New York, many places in the states have urban deer hunting in and around subdivisions to reduce the population.

    Glad you two are so critical of others trying to learn about bow hunting in a legal way in their own areas.

    Did you know that bow hunting is allowed within the city limits of Ottawa? Ottawa is a massive city, they have different discharge laws for different areas. They used to have hunters come in to cull deer in an area that is federal government land bounded by subdivisions on all 4 sides.

    To the OP:
    It would be a very good idea to first be aware of the specific regulations and limitations that apply on crossbow hunting in NY.
    A local bow shop could give you some savvy advise on this matter, and guide ya in the right direction...

    Watch some you Tube Videos, in the US some county's let urban deer hunting with a bow only. Ive watched videos of guys hunting outside a dentist office after is closes with a busy road near by.

    And to the OP i would recommend a Excalibur.

    Exactly, it is very normal down south to hunt within range of houses.

    Jeff did and my post was relevant pointing out that many cities allow bow hunting.
