Default RE: Anyone seeing deer in central NY

I live and hunt in Steuben(WMU's 8P / 8R)about 10 minutes from Hammondsport. The deer pop. does appear to be down somewhat from where it was several years ago. Are you hunting in WMU 8P? The doe tags are pretty hard to get in that unit this year. However, there are still plenty of deer out there. This year is looking pretty good...I've been watching 7-8 different 2.5-3.5 yr. old bucks in the alfalfa field across from my house, which is my main hunting area. Right now the bucks arepretty hard to catch out before dark, but the does and fawns are out there every night. Good luck.
