Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

Connecticut State Big Game Records

Home to Yale and a number of very smart whitetail deer, Connecticut offers liberal seasons


Let’s just say that whitetail deer hunting isn’t exactly what Connecticut’s known for. That’s too bad. If more of those bright young brains at Yale took to the hills come fall, they might learn that the state’s deer population could use a little love, especially when it comes to record-book headgear. The state has one buck that scores a tad north of 200, but it doesn’t help that some hunters can kill up to 14 deer in one season. To be fair, the state does have an urban archery deer season, which is great.
