I have been there
Have done a little deer hunting in happy valley (very little). It is close enough to Syracuse that when the Northern Tier (whitch happy valley is in) seasons open it gets a lot of hunting pressure.
I am sure that the NYSDEC web page has info on HV.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
