Some hunters have been confused by a statement on Page 31 of the 2012-13 New York Hunting and Trapping Guide regarding new regulations adopted by DEC. The text refers to “allowing Deer Management Permits (DMPs, “doe tags”) to be used in all seasons in the Northern Zone.”
This means that hunters who obtain a DMP for a Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) in the northern zone may use that tag during any open deer hunting season in that WMU. The only WMUs with DMPs available this year are 6C, 6G, 6H, 6K and 6R.
