Most Popular Wildlife Recreation

Hunting is among the most popular forms of wildlife recreation in New York State. Nearly 700,000 New Yorkers and over 50,000 nonresidents hunt in the Empire State.

Fall is when deer are most active for the mating season, known as 'The Rut.'

"White-tailed deer seem to prefer border areas between forests and fields, although they can be found in a variety of habitats depending on the season," says the NYSDEC. "They thrive in open agricultural areas as well as in dense brushy habitat."

Anyone who has hunted for very long knows how smart deer can be. A couple of trips into the field can change their patterns, so it's a good idea to have more than one location scouted. And while locations with food are great places, many times deer will feed at night, especially when there is a lot of human activity in the area.
