A section of the Montezuma Wildlife Management Area is closed to vehicles and may remain closed through the start of hunting season on Nov. 20, reports the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

Carncross Road, which provides the only vehicle access to Howland Island in Savannah, Wayne County, at the Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area, is temporary closed as the Seneca River is at flood stage.

Deer hunters are advised that this closure may extend through the early part of the Southern Zone firearm season, which begins Nov. 20, the DEC said this week.

Currently, non-motorized access to Howland Island is available via the bridge on Howland Island Road in Port Byron or by crossing the Seneca River by watercraft.
