Post Opening Weekend Southern Zone Deer Harvest Reports.
Opening Weekend Southern Zone Deer Harvest Reports.
The harvest reports for the 2010 regular firearms deer season opening weekend are up about 5% compared to opening weekend in 2009. This first Saturday and Sunday of the Southern Zone regular deer season is an important time for deer hunters and deer harvest. In a 2007 survey (http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/wildlife_pdf/hdrudeer07.pdf) (pdf, 709 kb), roughly 85% of New York deer hunters indicated that they participated in the Southern Zone regular season. Of these hunters, about 93% hunted on opening day, including 5% who only hunted on opening day. Hunters averaged just under 7 hours afield on opening day but dropped back to an average of less than 6 hours per day during the rest of the regular season. In 2009, deer harvest during the opening weekend accounted for: nearly 50% of the Southern Zone regular season buck take; almost 40% of the Southern Zone regular season total deer take; slightly more than 25% of the Southern Zone deer take during all seasons; and more than 20% of the statewide deer take during all seasons.
