Did you happen to pick up the rules and regulations guide? It explains what dates the late muzzle-loading season encompasses.

Check it here.

Deer and Bear Hunting Seasons - NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation

Basically, its an extension on the hunting season for muzzle-loader users. (Its Dec. 10 -Dec 18) in my area. Late Bow season also runs at the same time, at least in my area.

Also, here are some questions from the NYDEC website FAQ.

Use of Crossbows

Question: When can I use a crossbow to hunt?
Answer: Crossbows may be used only during the early bear season, regular firearms seasons, late muzzleloading seasons, and the special firearms season in Suffolk County for the 2011 and 2012 big game hunting seasons.
Question: May I use a crossbow during a bowhunting season?
Answer: No. Crossbows may not be used during any bowhunting season.
