16 Point Buck Taken in Onondaga County

This monster 16-point buck was taken by Dave Edwards in Apulia Station, NY on December 11th. After a week of constant snowfall, Dave headed to an old apple grove on the family farm where QDM was practiced. Fighting his way through two feet of snow he finally arrived at the stand at 6:45 a.m.

Since Dave had never hunted this particular stand before he decided to sit on the ground until it got light enough that he could see what condition the stand was in. A little while later he was up in the stand and scanning his surroundings when he caught some movement in the distance.

As he raised his binoculars to see what it was, Dave knew this was a buck of a lifetime. The deer worked its way in and at 45 yards Dave put the buck down with a slug from his shotgun. He could not believe his eyes when he walked up to the buck and saw the massive 205″ beast lying there. It truly was a buck of a lifetime.

The changes to the Suffolk County deer hunting seasons and permit requirements are summarized as follows:

• Extends the regular (bowhunting) season for deer in Suffolk County through January 31;
• Expands the special firearms season for deer in Suffolk County to run from the first Sunday in January (January 4) through January 31 including weekends. The 2015 firearms deer season in Suffolk County will begin Sunday, January 4 and continue until January 31;
