    NYS DEC

    Thought this might have some interest to some. Looks like the DEC can study the Deer overpopulation , but cant do any thing about it. Plus Operator Exam info, below Deer Management in Urban & Suburban New York

    White-tailed deer are an important part of New York’s natural heritage. However, they increased in abundance throughout the last century and have now reached problematic levels in many parts of the state, especially where local and state laws and landowner opinions have constrained regulated hunting. DEC created a report (PDF) that provides a comprehensive review of deer overabundance and management in urban and suburban areas.

    Urban/suburban deer overabundance is challenging community residents, local municipal officials, and state agencies across the country. In some respects, New York is at the forefront of management approaches to this problem, but state laws prevent the use of several of the most effective techniques. Removing those legal obstacles would make it easier and more affordable for communities to address their deer-related problems. No matter what methods are used, urban/suburban deer management is a complicated process requiring a long-term commitment. Communities and individuals interested in developing a deer management program can visit DEC’s Community Deer Management webpage for a deer management guide, other resources, and contact information.

        The Staten Island deer an turkey populations are pretty big too. A friend sent me a picture of a white tail on the beach at Coney Island last summer.

          There's a SnoozDay article, I believe yesterday, about a renewed push to ban hunting in East Hampton. I can't access it.......can anyone give an update?

            Coney Island is Brooklyn . You saying it swam from Staten Island ? Yes I know deer are good swimmers . I've seen them by the old landfill by 440

              Even with the license, you STILL need a permit from the town to cull deer.

                On a side note, I hear the state announced an upcoming test for DEC police, if anyone's interested

                  I find it laughable when government employees “thinned out” the deer herd on Long Island they hunted at night, with 22lr and silencers. The very things that would get us arrested!

                    I’ve been told that the deer in Huntington, Glen Cove, Pt Washington swam here from Connecticut. Impressive but apparently they can do it.
                    From SI to Brooklyn they can walk across on the Coney Island White fish

                      Could have sworn the USDA guy I meet on my nuisance permit said it was a silenced .243. He can use bait and night vision devices besides jacklighting them.

                        From the hearing they said 22lr headshots

                        not much use silencing a .243, even if it was 243 it’s still something we get arrested for

                          These were taken in East Hampton last July. They're like cattle out there.
