We offer guided Adirondack Whitetail deer hunts in New York! The northern Adirondacks offer the most challenging Whitetail deer hunt in the country! This is the true home of the “100 inch Booner”! The combination of the terrain and the woodlands force you to get within 50 yards or less before you have a shot. Anyone that has hunted whitetails before will tell you,”That ain’t easy!” Harvesting a whitetail deer, on foot, from the ground, up close and in a heavily wooded area is one of the great challenges and accomplishments any deer hunter can have! 100% fair chase!
We ‘still hunt’ or as I like to call it “Stalk and Spot” as opposed to the western technique of “Spot and Stalk”. We use terrain features such as slides, ridges, brooks and gullies as cover, as we stalk slowly and quietly into the wind. Your guide will position you so you will be hunting off of your guide at times, as a tactic to compliment your still hunting strategy.
If you think you still have a little hunt left in you… this is the hunt for you! (not for the feint of heart or unconditioned hunter-call me and we can talk more about whether its the right hunt for you or not.)
We do have very limited opportunities to hunt from a simple (climber/ladder) stand please call for details and pricing.
Due to my own passion for chasing Whitetails these hunts are limited. These hunts are offered as a package with one of our lodging property partners.
THOUGH WE DON’T RECOMMEND IT, YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT THERE ARE SO FEW HUNTERS UP HERE THAT THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE IN THE COUNTRY, THAT I KNOW OF, THAT YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED BY LAW TO WEAR FLUORESCENT ORANGE IN REGULAR RIFLE SEASON!! THAT’S HOW TOUGH THE TERRAIN AND HUNTING CAN BE! THE DEER DIE OF OLD AGE UP HERE…THOUGH WE DO OUR BEST TO NOT LET THAT HAPPEN!;)
