2010 Deer Take and Bear Harvest

March 28th, 2011 · No Comments · News

I’m always interested in the hunting stats when they come out.
Things I noted in the data:

  • 521 Black Bears were harvested in the Adirondacks in 2010.
  • 2010 Calculated NYS Legal Deer Take is 230,100 (a lot of venison)
  • City of Plattsburgh had 8 Bucks Harvested?
  • Big spike in 2003 for a record of 1,370 Adirondack Bears harvested
  • Deer take also peaked around 2003 (what happened in 2003?)
  • St Lawrence is the top county with 97 Bears taken

2010 Adirondack Bear Harvest

“Deer hunters play a crucial role, benefiting all New Yorkers, by helping to maintain deer numbers at levels that are ecologically and socially appropriate, and we appreciate their participation,” Commissioner Martens said.

I guess socially appropriate means those deer are in the wrong place.

Sucks for them

I’m loaded for Beer.
