At least in the county I live in. I think farther away from semi-sorta-kinda population centers hunting with rifles is allowed by SSRNY law. Hunters here seem to get along fine with shotguns, though. There's a bow season as well, of course, but unfortunately crossbows are not permitted - hence my idea of using a Medieval siege crossbow is right out.
As to shotguns... ...if I were inclined to such an undertaking, I should like to utilize the impressive looking AA-12 model.
Though I suspect the 32 round drum capacity violates another law regarding magazine capacity.
Plus, I fear I would be as likely to attempt to empty the entire drum into some poor, dumb hooved thing as to fire one round, just to see how many I could hit it with before it fell down.
