New York hunters killed about 214,000 deer in 2016

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The state Department of Environmental Conservation says New York hunters killed about 214,000 deer in 2016, up about 5 percent from 2015.

That includes an estimated 109,000 adult bucks — a 10 percent increase from 2015 — and 105,000 antlerless deer.

The numbers are preliminary estimates. The DEC says final harvest numbers are expected later this month as the agency updates its harvest calculation system.
