Fewer deer harvested during 2017 hunting season


Fewer deer were taken this year by New York hunters.

The Department of Environmental conservation says more than 200,000 deer were harvested during the 2017-18 hunting season.

That included 107-thousand antlered bucks.

But that was an estimated five-percent fewer deer than the previous year. 

Statewide, this represents a 10-percent decline in the antlerless harvest and a buck harvest nearly identical to 2016.
