Hunting state parks


Recommended Posts

When I would hunt Sterling Forest in NY, one time I was walking out on a hiking trail during the firearm season. The trail followed the edge of a pond. I looked up and saw two hikers wearing orange in the distance heading my way. When they got much closer, they looked up and finally saw me. They both ran full speed to get behind a large tree and were both yelling "Don't Shoot, Don't Shoot"! It takes all kinds!

Its also open to winter bow

There's no deer there.  It's been over hunted and over crowded with out of state hunters, and the many bears there don't like people.

And the snow in January is 3' deep with temps being 0 to 18 below

Once had an entire boyscout troop walk by. One kid spotted me. 15 yards away. 18' up.  Kids were fine. The leader was a doosh. He was shocked that I was bowhunting in October. Lol 

I was bringing up the rear on a hike with our troop and they all walked passed a turkey hunter without seeing him.  I just smiled at him and he smiled back.  If one of the kids was named Tom, he would have been Thanksgiving dinner
