Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

New York State Big Game Records

Home to the Big Apple, New York also provides a home for big, big black bears and plenty of whitetails


If you’re a big game hunter and live in New York, your big game hunting is going to be limited to whitetails and black bears. That’s not a bad thing. In the counties that border Pennsylvania and New Jersey, there are more woods than steel and concrete. And that’s where you’re going to find those big bruins. In 2017, one hunter killed the state record that landed in the top 10 of All-time at 22-15/16 points. This isn’t to say that New York doesn’t have great whitetail deer hunting opportunities, because they do. The bears are just bigger.
