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.
The 2016-2017 DMFA Registration is not available at this time. To obtain your 2016-2017 DMFA Registration Number, please visit this site on Tuesday, September 15, 2015. Thank you.
