If you hunt in Westchester County, NY you probably already know that WMU 3S has a Bonus DMP tag program. Simply bring the head of a deer harvested in WMU 3S to the DEC check station. DEC will age the deer and document the harvest. The DEC will then issue a bonus either/or (antlered or antlerless) bonus tag. Easy as pie….
To qualify for a bonus tag you MUST tag your doe with a DMP tag that has 8888 in the docket number.
