In central Tompkins County (and nowhere else in the state), deer hunting season is open again from January 12th through 31st. You can find more details here, including a map. It's roughly Dryden west of Hanshaw Road, south of 13 to Ringwood.
Hunt antlerless deer only (limit 2 per day) during a DMFA season from the second Saturday in January through January 31. During the DMFA season, a hunter may use any hunting implement that is lawful during any other deer season in that area. Rifles are not authorized for big game hunting in Tompkins County.
I don't know if having an extra season that only applies here will bring hunters from elsewhere, but a fair number of people I've talked with were not aware that this would be happening. Tomorrow's weather forecast looks great, so I suspect a lot of unsuspecting people will want to take hikes in the woods.
Be careful out there!Posted by simon at January 11, 2013 10:52 PM in
