Things To Do


NY Deer Hunting 

Be A Welcomed NY Deer Hunter

    Make your New York deer hunting fun and trouble free.  

  • Know where you are deer hunting - where the boundary lines are.  The penalty in New York for deer hunting on private land without permission is up to a $250.00 fine and/or jail for up to 15 days.  Be careful not to "wander off accidentally."  Landowners are aware of this game and some have had their patience worn thin by other "accidental wanderers" and  are no longer very forgiving of the intrusion.

  • High-tension lines or other public utility lines appear to be a great places to hunt, however check to see who owns the land. Usually the utility company doesn't own the land.  You will most likely find that a private individual owns it and has given the utility company  a 'right of way' through the property for their utility lines and for the maintenance of those lines.  Note: the right of way is for the utility company and is not a public right of way.  You need permission to hunt here.

  • If you wound a deer and it goes onto someone else's property ask the landowner for permission to pursue the deer.  This is the only right thing to do and it's the law.  Trailing a wounded deer is not an excuse for trespassing.  Besides, someone may be deer hunting there and you do not want to ruin their hunt.  To avoid the situation see Dave's New York deer hunting tip #1 and #2.

  • Be gracious to the landowner.  Hunting on his/her property is a privilege.  Don't only tell him/her how thankful you are but show how thankful you are.  The New York hunter safety education course suggests offering to share some of the venison with the landowner.  Even if he doesn't accept the offer it 's the thought that counts.  Stop and visit the owner, when possible, several times through out the year.  Send a letter of thanks, a Christmas card, or a small present to show your appreciation.

Anne and I really enjoy our deer hunting experiences in upper state New York near Lake Ontario.  It's not only nice to have a great New York deer hunting spot, it is equally nice to be in an area where there are so many people that share in the enjoyment of the sport.  No matter where you are - a restaurant, grocery store, or local watering hole - just ask, "How is your deer hunting going?"  You will never be short of conversation.
