Bonus Antlerless Deer Management Permits Available for WMU 9A
Tag Availability Limited, Contact DEC
NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced that a limited supply of bonus Deer Management Permits (DMPs) are available to hunters who successfully harvest an antlerless deer in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 9A.
In order to be eligible for a bonus DMP, hunters are required to present a properly completed DMP carcass tag along with the unfrozen deer head at DEC's Region 9 Office, located at 270 Michigan Avenue in Buffalo. Wildlife staff will collect biological and harvest information from the deer and then issue a bonus DMP which will allow the taking of an additional antlerless deer in WMU 9A. WMU 9A is comprised of the Town of Grand Island and northern and western Niagara County.
Bonus DMPs reward successful hunters by allowing them to take additional antlerless deer. There are 200 Bonus DMPs available for this unit but only one tag will be given to each successful hunter per day. For more information or to request a bonus DMP, please contact DEC at (716) 851-7010. Please call prior to arrival to ensure that staff are available to check your deer.
