NYS DEC Deer Management Plan


Al Dente:
Please look into this, as the period for public comment is extremely short, and the plan is 79 pages long.  Some disturbing proposals that are included are:

A "special" FIREARMS ONLY antlerless season in September
Full Inclusion for crossbows
Extending the legal hunting hours to 1/2 hour before sunrise and 1/2 hour after sunset, even during the Regular (Firearms) Season

All the best, Al.

The 1/2 hr before sunrise is in almost every other state in the nation, & is in Turkey season here in ny already, this should not be a concern. Mike
