2016 Deer Management Update

Thursday, May 12, 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Join DEC staff online or in-person for an update on Deer Management in New York.

The webinar is designed to inform New York deer hunters and the general public about current issues in deer management and to set the stage for updating DEC's Management Plan for White-tailed Deer in New York State. DEC will provide an overview of the state's deer management program, outline progress on current deer program activities including a brief explanation of DEC's recent decision to encourage hunters to voluntarily pass up young bucks, and discuss current management priorities including urban-suburban deer over abundance, reducing deer impacts on forests, and other issues.

The presentation will be simulcast online and to meeting venues in Albany, Cattaraugus, Cortland, Nassau, Oneida, Saratoga, Steuben, St. Lawrence and Ulster counties where participants will have opportunity to meet their regional DEC deer biologist. After the presentation, DEC staff will be available online and in-person to answer questions and discuss public concerns about deer management.

For instructions about how to connect online and for the list of specific locations where the meetings will be hosted by DEC staff, see the 2016 Public Meetings on Deer Management webpage on DEC's website.
