Hello all. I'm going hunting for my first time in Durham NY & wanted some answers on a couple of questions. I would greatly appreciate it.

1. Where can i find a deer check point if i should harvest a deer?

2. What is the deer restrictions as far as antler size and # of points?

First Hunt in Durham, NY

I hunt in Durham every year on my uncles farm. Not really sure there are any checkpoints around up there to check in deer if you shoot one. As far as antler restricitons there are none in that area. We have been passing on small bucks over the past two seasons and have seen the rewards this season. All of the below bucks were shot in durham this season with both bow and gun. Where abouts in durham are you hunting?

Nice

Nice Trophy you got there. I just got back and no luck on my first hunt but it was a good learning experience. I was in Preston Hollow NY. While relaxing waiting to see some activity ( none ) all i heard were rifles going off all day long. I was only allowed on the property that the cabin had to offer. I guess going into an area that i dont really know and being out numbered by the folks that live there really hurt my hunt. Gonna try Long island this weekend just to get a second shot before Deer season is over.
