Deer Management Focus Area Registration

Welcome to the Deer Management Focus Area registration program

To participate in the DMFA program in central Tompkins County, New York, you must obtain a DMFA registration number and write the number on your DMFA permit and all carcass tags.

  • Within the DMFA, registered hunters will be authorized to:
    • take up to 2 antlerless deer per day using DMFA carcass tags,
    • hunt antlerless deer (limit 2 per day) with a firearm during a DMFA season from the second Saturday in January through January 31.
  • You do not need to register with the DMFA program if you only intend to hunt during the normal hunting seasons using your regular deer carcass tags.

If you would like to participate in the Deer Management Focus Area program during the 2019/2020 season, please press the link below to get your DMFA registration number.
