Black River or Flatbrook - it's a crowd scene but I don't really have any other good options. I went to Black River on the Thanksgiving Day morning - it was pretty wild. I didn't like hunting in such a crowded situation - I missed 4 shots at Pheasant. I'm not that bad a shot - my excuse is the crowds - at least that's my current excuse.
Can anyone suggest any other good areas in the northern part of NY?
whittingham is great. its not as crowded as Flatbrook because it has three main areas. It has an area where they do youth hunting day which is open the main season also. there is also an apple orchard and a long stretch of road with feilds on both sides. are you familiar with andover or whittingham bgood?
