We consider our deer hunting to be about as good as it gets, not so much for quality but for quantity. Don't be mislead, we do kill some nice older deer, but this part of New York is better known for a high density of deer per square mile, not trophy hunting. Leatherstocking leases private land and we have over 800 acres available to us. We have over 100 stands set in active areas where you can expect to see deer at any time of the day. Lots of hunters want to be here for the first few days of the rifle season, and that is a great time to hunt, but the rest of the season is real good too. We have plenty of deer, and once the woods quiet down a bit following opening weekend the deer get back to their daily patterns. The later part of the season often finds snow on the ground which makes for some great hunting. A typical day of hunting has us getting you up early, we have a hot breakfast, then head for the woods. We get you to your stand before day-break and you are left on your own to hunt during the day. If you kill a deer or hit one and need help, you call us and we will come into the woods and help with game retrieval.
