The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced yesterday that remaining Deer Management Permits (DMPs) in several Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) will be available to hunters beginning November 1, 2014.
Deer Management Permits, which allow hunters to harvest antlerless deer, are issued for specific WMUs to control deer populations. In some WMUs, all applicants received permits during the initial application process, but the DMP target still has not been reached.
Among the WMUs available are 9A and 9F which include the Gasport and Middleport areas.
To help local hunters acquire their doe tags under this special offer by the DEC, the town of Royalton will have special clerk's office hours this Saturday, November 1st from 9:00 till noon.
