NY Big Game WMU changes

Here it is !
NY Big Game,The odds of selection for Deer Management Permits (DMPs) in 2009 have been posted on our website at

We routinely get questions from hunters about how DMP quotas are developed, and we have a description of the process posted at

DMPs will be available when licenses go on sale beginning August 17, 2009. The deadline for application is October 1, 2009. As a reminder, the license fees have changed as well, and DMP applications will now be free only for holders of a Junior Hunting or Junior Bowhunting licenses and for hunters who purchased a Lifetime Sportsmen License prior to October 1, 2009. All other license holders will be charged $10 for the DMP application.

The $10 fee covers application for 1 or 2 DMPs.Also, please be aware that some Wildlife Management Unit boundaries have changed. It is very important that you review the new WMU boundaries so that you are able to apply for a DMP in the correct unit.

The boundary changes also affect some season dates, bag limits, and open areas for big and small game, turkey, waterfowl, and furbearers.

See for boundary descriptions and for description of the boundary changes.
