Please don't shoot the messenger... just passing along this information.

For those interested in deer hunting on the ridge, here is the one-stop information website for forms, maps, guidelines, etc., for Minnewaska State Park, Sam's Point, and the Mohonk Preserve:
Gunks Deer Program

Lack of predators have helped the deer population to swell above sustainable levels for the ridge's forest undercover. Anyone applying for a hunting (bow and/or gun) permit from any (or all!) of these three organizations gets a doe permit.

If you don't like venison, you can donate your deer to help feed the hungry. This processor will butcher your venison for free and give it to the needy.

Or not - the DMP of the ridge gives everyone who applies a doe permit. If you get a doe, you can apply for another permit. And then another. As long as their quotas are not met, they'll give you a permit...

Since we won't be seeing big cats here any time soon, trade your rack for a recurve.

Hey Mim,

The link goes to the Venison Donation Coalition site, which lists one processor in Ulster and two in Dutchess. Do you know of others in Ulster that donate?

Yeah it's called the Ranger Rob chest freezer fund. It goes to feed all those needy climbers that show up at chili parties.

That is all I know... but I'll ask around.

What about 'hunting' the ones in my yard? What are the restrictions? Not really sport, they just stand there. Vegetarian, so not my thing, just asking.
