Default Introduction.

My name is Scot and I am new to this forum. I live in the Catskill Mountains In New York and am an avid deer hunter both with Archery equipment and with Firearms.
In addition to hunting throughout all of our NY deer seasons I have hunted out of state every year for the last 15 years in Idaho. (unguided)
I have been considering hunting in Central to Western NY and am looking for information as to what area's may be better than others. Any assistance that any here can provide without divulging your own favorite area's would be appreciated.
I will be an active participant here.

Hey Scot, welcome to the DHC buddy. I know for a fact that WNY has great deer herds and provides great hunting opportunity but I really have no info on where to hunt and how to get access to lands because I just hunt on the reservation and never got into hunting state land and other property. Many friends have taken great deer from the surrounding areas though.

Thank you. I have been researching the heck out of the State Land options. I am just looking to narrow my scope. I am checking in to Limited Access permits,Conservatories etc. Any thing that may have less hunting pressure. I will keep at it. Any information shared with me is very much appreciated!

Welcome from eastern Washington. I have a lot of friends who live and hunt in Idaho, but personally I stay in Washington.
