In Search Of Bigger Bucks

Local News

Deer are on the move, and the DEC says about 60% of the total buck harvest occurs in the next three weeks.

In recent years, about half of the antlered bucks taken were about 18-months old.

They weigh less and have antlers about half the size of a buck another year older, according to the DEC.

Conservationists bring this up to suggest hunters pass up shots at young bucks this year, so there will be more older, bigger bucks next season.
