I Was Wandering How The Deer Hunting Is In Madison County New York? I Swaped A Bear Hunt For An Archery Hunt In Ny. We Will Be In Canastota New York. Any Feed Back Would Be Great!

Pretty good - check out the Tioughnioga (Tee-off-nee-oh-gah) Wildlife management unit in Madison County. I scoped it out while turkey hunting this spring. Plenty of crabapples, hidden meadows, etc. Pushed three deer out of one meadow.

Not sure how the hunting is but............

Madison county is one of the two counties in ny with CWD restrictions placed on it do to the captive deer escaping. Heres what it says........

Oneida and Madison county CWD containment area:

it is illegal to:

*move certain animal parts out of the area
*Butcher the carcass of a deer taken from the CWD containment area prior to a mandatory examination by the dec

this sucks..........pm me if you want some more info or you could check out the DEC web site.

Sorry dude.

Maybe I'm wrong but I thought the containment doesn't mean that you can't bring your deer home. You just need to get it inspected first. I dunno about the "certain parts" thing, though.

The village of Canastota is within the town of Lenox, which itself is one of three towns in Madison County in the containment area - Lenox, Oneida, Stockbridge.

From the regs:

Within this containment area, it is illegal to:

* Move certain animal parts OUT of the containment area.
* Un-butchered deer carcasses.
* the brain, eyes, spinal cord, tonsils, intestinal tract, spleen, or retropharyngeal lymph nodes (found in the upper neck and jaw area), or any portion of such parts, or any carcass containing such parts.
* Disposal of all deer carcasses and parts, except those parts removed in the field during normal field dressing, must be at a landfill within the CWD containment area or via a commercial or municipal waste removal operator.

However, the Tioughnioga WMU area does not appear to be within the containment area. It spreads across the towns of New Woodstock and the town of Nelson. Most of Madison County is outside the containment area.

I hunt upstate NY every year just outside of Binghamton. Usually the best time for the rut are the 1st and second weeks of Nov. You should be there at a very good time.

hope it works out

i hope it works because i am swaping a baited bear hunt for this guy and his two brothers. the bears are coming in great to the baits so far. we got some great pictures of them. hopefully he is doing the homework for us, so when we get in NY they will have the areas picked out. I think these guys are getting a great deal.

i live in oneida, NY and have been baring with this CWD issue for awhile, but I have seem just as many deer if not more than in the past. the issues involving CWD in Madison-Oneida County can be found on the DEC website.

Now the rutting question. You picked a great time to come and bowhunt. November 11th is the peak day of the rut and Ive killed two bucks in the past two years on that day, and always take it off from school. Good luck this year
