New bow hunting legislation has been approved in Cayuga Heights by village trustees following multiple public hearings and discussions. Although multi faceted, the provision ultimately allows for deer to be shot by bow and cross bow now, marking a dramatic reversal of restrictive hunting laws passed in 1999. Open season hunting of deer by bow or cross bow will remain unpermitted within the village, although officials have cited deer auto collisions, Lyme disease, and ecological damage as major motivators for the action.

The law will not become official until it is filed with the New York Secretary of State, and has most recently been met with vehement criticism in the area, with many community members citing fear of accidental injuries to people and pets as primary objections.
