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!

*** 2021 Deer Hunts: Archery, crossbow, muzzleloader and rifle hunts available. Call for dates and prices.
*** NEW 2021!!! Archery/Muzzleloader holiday season now includes December 26 to January 1 and all tags become either sex. $475 for any four days, you pick the dates. $375 for hunters who were with us in earlier seasons this year. Send $100 deposit to Bob.
*** Unit 4F DMP tags: Deer hunters should apply for a 4F DMP (anterless) tag to increase your odds of success.
*** Better hunting In order to improve hunting opportunities, we restrict archery hunting so that no bow hunting will take place the two days prior to the open of rifle season. We also restrict rifle hunting on our properties during the Thanksgiving holiday period to give the woods a rest.
*** Guide Gratuities: Many hunters ask what they should tip their guide and I would say the average tip for a hunt is between $75-$150, but the amount is up to you. Your guide scouts ahead of your arrival and sets up your stand. For each hunt we will get you to a good spot where you could see deer movement if you stay in the stand. Thank you for showing 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 and always use a safety harness whenever you hunt from an elevated stand.
