More About The White-Tailed Deer
Of all the game animals within the State of New York, the White-Tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus,) is the most popular among game hunters. For many, deer hunting is a huge part of life and also a large part part of many New York communities. Just through funds raised by selling state hunting licenses and from National excise tax revenue, approximately $35 million in NYDEC support money are generated each year from the more than 500,000 deer hunters participating.
White-tailed Deer are herbivores, meaning they only feed on plants. Some populations of White-Tailed have been known to devastate plant communities. This animal’s activities often clash with humans. Often, deer can become a hazard to motorists on roadways. Through resource management, the State of New York is able to control the population to ensure abundance within the area, while preventing over-population.
