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
***December 2014: The season has come and gone and we had another fantastic year. We took lots of turkeys both in the spring and fall seasons and now that December is here and snow is on the ground we are seeing large flocks of over 50 birds in the cut corn fields. Spring 2015 should be outstanding! Our deer hunters took over 60 deer between the archery, youth, rifle and muzzleloader seasons. We got some good bucks as this year we had a heavy acorn crop and the deer got fat. That will help them winter over. 2015 prices are set and posted on the rates page.
*** 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.
*** Information on our hunts can be found by using the links below or call Bob at (607) 434-2420 for complete information. You can also send e-mail however a phone call is preferred as I am not on the computer all that often. Good luck hunting and thank you.
