Adirondack Hunting: Some of the Best Hunting Anywhere in the US

Most hunters will agree, for the variety of game and the beauty of the setting, nothing beats hunting in the Adirondacks.

Created about five million years ago (they are relatively young mountains in geologic time) by the uplift and carving left by glaciers, the
Adirondacks are among the loveliest ranges in the United States. What's more, even though the mountains themselves are young as mountains go, the rocks that form them are believed to be some of the oldest on Earth.

New York State's Adirondack Park is comprised of the Adirondack Mountains, as well as 3,000 lakes and 2,000 miles of hiking trails. There are woodlands, mountains (more than 2,000 peaks), rivers (50,000 miles), lakes (7,500), streams and waterfalls.

Oh, and did we mention the game?

Whitetail deer, black bears, coyotes, wild turkeys, foxes, all abound. If you prefer trapping, beavers, otters, muskrats, and fishes also are plentiful.

Sportsmen have been
hunting in Upstate New York for more than 100 years, yet you'll still be able to find great hunting areas seemingly untouched by man.

If it's been a dream of yours to bag the allusive eight-point
whitetail deer buck, hunting in the Adirondacks is the place to go! Much of the Adirondack Park has strict rules and regulations regarding where and when hunting may take place. But this has meant that even though the Adirondacks are some of the most visited mountains in the country, the area hasn't been over-fished or over-hunt.

Which means great hunting for you!

The whitetail deer ruts in November, which means it's a great time to hunt them. They are at their largest and most magnificent at this time; some bucks taken in November have been in excess of 200 pounds.

Adirondack Black bears are wild and elusive animals, they are a great challenge to hunt without bait.

If you decide to hunt with Adirondack Wilderness Camp, you will experience true wilderness including Moose, Bear, Deer, Bobcat, Great Horned Owls, Bald Eagles, Otters and Beavers.

Regulations are strict regarding
hunting in the Adirondacks. Everyone older than 16 must have a large game license. Trappers also must be licensed and if this if your first time hunting, you'll have to take the New York State Trapping Training program. In addition, any first-time hunter will have to complete a 10-hour hunter safety course. These must be conducted by certified volunteers; your hunting outfitter will be able to give you more information about hunting regulations.
