Muzzleloading season for deer and bear began Saturday and runs through Friday throughout state Northern Zone, including the Adirondack region, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

An annual event for many New York hunters, the opening day of muzzleloading season traditionally accounts for more deer taken than any other day of the year in the Northern Zone.

DEC said that with a mild winter in 2011-12 and a moderate winter in 2012-13, deer populations have been growing throughout the north country.
