Deer management permits will be available to New York hunters beginning Saturday


ALBANY, New York — New York environmental officials say remaining deer management permits will be available to hunters beginning Saturday.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation announced that the permits in some wildlife management units will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Deer management permits allow hunters to take antlerless deer in specific wildlife management units as a way to control deer populations. The remaining permits are in areas where the target has not been reached.

Hunters may apply for up to two additional permits at DEC license sales outlets beginning Saturday.
