What you need to bring

New York State Hunting License

We recommend that you buy your New York State hunting license before arriving at camp to save time.
Licenses can be bought at many locations throughout New York State.
or on line at New York State D.E.C.

Appropriate outdoor clothing for hunting:

We recommend Hunter Orange for safety for all Deer Hunting, except Bow Hunting.
We especially like to wear an orange camo vest over whatever clothing we are wearing.
This makes it much easer to keep track of our hunting partners.
We suggest that you dress in layers. By dressing in layers you can adjust your clothing to stay comfortable throughout the hunt.
The Gore tex hunting clothing that is now available can make the hunt much more comfortable than in the old days.
A pair of well broken in waterproof hunting boots is essential when hunting in the mountains.
Be prepared for cold weather and snow if hunting during November and December.
We frequently have light snow on the mountain tops in October.

A rifle that you have sighted in.

Make sure that your rifle is well sighted in.
Remember to sight in your rifle at the temperature you will be hunting in.
Lower temperatures may mean that your bullets hit the target lower.
Although most of the shots for woods hunting are 100 yards or less, know the trajectory for your caliber, and where your rifle hits at different ranges.

Cost of 6 day non-guided hunt is $875 per person

$200 deposit per person, required by July for reservations.

Hunters arrive on Sunday afternoon and depart the following Saturday morning. This allows travel time from out of state, and the necessary paddling of hunters in and out of camp.
