Where Did Central New York Bag the Most Deer in 2017
The Department of Environmental Conservation is out with stats on 2017 deer season in New York. Overall numbers were down statewide, especially when it came to does. The number of Bucks remained about the same, but the big news was the age of the bucks harvested.
More than 53% of the bucks were 2 -1/2 years old or older, a state record. And an indication that the DEC's program, Let Young Bucks Go and Watch Them Grow is working. Here are where the most deer were taken around CNY.
