    started a topic NYS DEC

    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.

    3 years ago I was hunting out East mid-October.
    I was in the woods around 4:30am, sitting in my spot waiting.
    Way off in the distance I heard what sounded like a dog howling. A long, mournful howl. Over and over.
    Never occurred to me it could be a yot.

    I think it's Port J that wants to open some areas to bow hunting and the residence are furious. They want the government to do it.

    Change "deer" to "illegals" and this thread is an entertaining read.

    Talk to the LI anti's. They want vets to administer drugs to the deer to keep them from breeding.

    Free birth control extends to deer too I guess.

    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
