Hunters aim for 2011 county license in Peekskill
Westchester hunters are up in Peekskill today being tested for a chance to receive a bow hunting license, allowing them to be able to hunt deer in Westchester County parks.
In order to pass the test, the hunter must hit a 9-inch target from 25 yards away three times in a row. If the hunter is successful, he will be entered into a lottery.
The test will be given during the next three days at Blue Mountain Sports Center. The county will eventually give out 75 county licenses.
Deer hunting season does not officially kick off until mid-October.
