The state legislature passed EnCon budget bill A-3008C/S-2508C.

Contrary to the claims of people who didn't keep up with current events, provisions relating to lowering the hunting age have been removed.

DEC Announces New Opportunity for Youth HuntersBudget Includes Legislation Lowering the Age for Deer Hunting with a Firearm and Crossbow in Participating Upstate Counties
Counties Must Adopt Local Law Allowing Youth Hunters 12-13 to Hunt Deer

The legislation requires each county to "opt-in" to the program by adopting a local law allowing for 12- and 13-year-olds to hunt deer in accordance with ECL 11-0935. The legislation specifically excludes Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Queens, Richmond, Suffolk, and Westchester counties from participation in the new program.

I see what they did.  The original proposal was to drop the age to 12 to hunt with a gun in EnCon bill A-3008C/S-2508C.  That was removed.  What passed in a different bill A-3005C/S-2505C was a 2-year pilot program for 12 year old to hunt deer with a gun north of Westchester.  That's in the "public protection" budget?
