Hello, I am Bob Partridge and thank you for visiting the web site for Leatherstocking Guide Service. We are located in Central New York State in the small town of Milford which is on the Susquehanna River just south of Cooperstown. The Catskills are to our south and the Adirondacks to the north. Cooperstown, where the baseball Hall of Fame is located, is just nine miles away. The landscape here is rolling hills, farmland, woodlots and state forests. We've got lots of deer, big flocks of wild turkeys and fantastic small game hunting. We also offer waterfowl hunts and we even do ice fishing in the winter. Milford is a quiet and peaceful rural area and if hunting, fishing and just being in the outdoors are to your liking, then this is your spot!
|WELCOME TO LEATHERSTOCKING GUIDE SERVICE
***OCTOBER 2016: We had a great hunting season in 2015 with over 50 deer and lots of turkeys harvested, and the mild winter caused no winter-kill. Deer populations are very high and the turkey hatch was great, so we expect to have an outstanding hunting season in 2016. Prices and information are found using the links below and we look forweard to seeing you for a deer or turkey hunt! Thank you.
*** Unit 4F DMP tags: Hunters who purchase their license before October 1 and chose to purchase a Deer Management Permit (DMP) for unit 4F should receive their antlerless tag giving you additional opportunities to get a deer. Also, in 2016 there will be no antler point restriction in 4F.
*** Unit 4F point restriction: In 2016 there will be no antler point restriction in 4F.
*** Guide Gratuities: Because many hunters ask me what they should tip our guides I can tell you that the average is around 20% of the cost of the hunt for deer hunts and often more for turkey hunts where the level of personal service is greater based on the type of hunt. Our guides work hard for you when you are here and before you arrive. The guides scout for prime locations, set up our many tree stands, help get you to and from your designated spot each day etc. and we hope you show your appreciation of their efforts.
*** Tree Stand Safety: Most of our stand locations are set with ladder or hang-on tree stands and you are also welcome welcome to bring your own stand. A climbing stand can be very helpful especially for archery seasons. We do require that you bring with you and always use a safety harness whenever you hunt from an elevated stand.
