A pilot program is planed for the deer hunting season in New York to develop the constitution of bucks inside 4 Wildlife Management Units (WMU's) which is situated mainly in Ulster and Sullivan Counties. The new set of laws require that bucks which are handed over to Wildlife Management Units 3C, 3H, 3J and 3K consist of 1 antler along with three point each one is a inch long. This limitation is can also be used in archery, regular and muzzle-loading seasons (Carson 7).
For approximately 100 years, a lawful buck had been a deer having one antler which is three inches long. Other states began trails on with plans to alter the age limit of the hunted bucks, and these programs usually generate bucks that live longer and grow bigger antlers.
If a hunter does hunt a deer, the law states that he has to report the kill by means of the tax free DECALS game reporting method before forty eight hours. The finding of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in the wild white-tailed deer flock a few years ago in Oneida County encouraged the DEC to accept set of laws to assist in minimizing the spread of the illness. The rules created a CWD restraint area in parts of Oneida as well as Madison Counties.
Each and every one wild white-tailed deer which is killed by a hunter in a containment region in various open hunting seasons should be given in for investigation at the check station of the DEC by five o'clock in the evening on the day after it was hunted. Deer might not be skinned or slaughtered. No parts of the body of the hunted deer, apart from those removed as part of standard dressing, of the field might be removed prior to examination.
It's the first time hunters have been allowed in the area, it's stirring up plenty of controversy. Some two million Marylanders use water from the Loch Raven Reservoir. The land around the water is a popular place for deer's. (http://insidecharmcity.com/2008/08/29/anti-deer-hunting-activists-propose-contraceptive-darts-at-loch-raven).

They have been fighting against the cull for eight years they consider it to be a barbaric slaughter of harmless deer. A group animal rights group Save Our Wildlife has been the most active protester against deer hunting. They consider their protest to be the voice of the deer. As to them it is disgusting, the idea of these lovely deer being hunted.
In New York City, another law which is very different from the rest of the country is that bills equalize the
