ENP STAFF REPORTS

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced that remaining Deer Management Permits (DMPs) in several Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) will be available to hunters beginning Sunday.

Deer Management Permits, which allow hunters to harvest antlerless deer, are issued for specific WMUs to control deer populations according to need. Both WMUs covering Niagara County -- 9A and 9F -- are included in the process.

Application willl be processed on a first-come, first-served basis with hunters being allowed to apply for up to two additional doe tags. Applicants who previously paid the $10 DMP application fee or are exempt from the application fee will not be charged for this additional application. Hunters that did not previously apply for a deer management permit will pay the $10 application fee.

During this extended application period, DEC will issue DMPs for an individual WMU until the target issuance quota is achieved. The status of permits will be reviewed each night, and as individual units are filled, they will be removed from the list of those available effective the following day, with no further applications accepted for those units. A list of units with available leftover DMPs will be routinely updated on DEC's website.

Deer populations are above desired levels in all of the units with leftover DMPs, according to the DEC, which encourages hunters to use these leftover tags to take an additional antlerless deer or two.
