The state Department of Environmental Conservation announced that approximately 35,000 Deer Management Permits will be issued to hunters who were denied permits during the initial application period earlier this fall. The department said Thursday that leftover DMPs also will be available in several Wildlife Management Units beginning Friday.
To issue the remaining DMPs under Gov. Andrew M. Cuomos New York Open for Fishing and Hunting initiative, DEC randomly selects applicants who were denied permits in these affected units during the initial application period. DEC completed the selection last week and has begun mailing permits to selected applicants.
A list of units with available leftover permits will be updated at www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/6399.html.
