2016 NYS Youth Hunt

Columbus weekend in New York means the annual 2016 NYS Youth Hunt and a chance for 14-15 year olds to harvest a deer in New York with the weapon of their choice. Here are photos of some of this years' successful youth hunters.

If you know of a successful 2016 youth hunter or are one yourself and would like to have your photo posted here... just drop me an email at nyantler@twcny.rr.com.

Remember that photos must be of the hunter and the deer, and must include the hunters full name and county of kill. It doesn't hurt to add other info such as number of points, weight, etc.

I am also always interested in a good hunting story as well if you have one. Just write it like you'd tell it to your hunting buddies and email it to me with photos and I will feature it on the "Deer Stories" page of the website.
