Hunting in the Adirondacks

Big Game, Long Season

White-tailed deer, black bears, grouse, turkeys, ducks, coyotes and small game are just a few of the Adirondack wildlife found on one million acres of public land here. The deep woods and isolated waters have challenged and rewarded skillful Northern Zone hunters for centuries.

Hunting seasons as well as licensing and reporting requirements are all administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. If you have purchased a New York State hunting license before, you may order one on-line. Qualified hunters may also purchase licenses from town clerks and at many sporting goods stores.

Public lands are plentiful in the Adirondacks and make for a great hunting experience. The 50,000 acre Moose River Recreation Area, with seasonal roads and 140 primitive camp sites, is just one example. Hunting in the Adirondacks is a true wilderness experience and licensed outdoor guides can enhance that experience.

For those with a passion for a true backcountry hunt, consider chartering one of our float plane guides to fly you to that remote, untouched land where you can pursue that big game you can't access by car or foot.
