Hunting in the Adirondack

Adirondack Hunting Guided Tours

The Adirondack Park is a six million acre park, located in the northern region of New York State.  A vast majority of the park is made up of huge tracks of forest and wilderness areas.   The park is home to a numerous amounts of animal species amongst the Regions Mountains and wilderness areas.  But one of the most sought after animal species in the park is the whitetail deer, although the park does not have a high population of deer it does produce some real trophies year after year. Our Deer season starts at the end of September and runs typically to the second week of December, with November usually being our most productive month to harvest a mature whitetail.  Hunting the Adirondacks can be some of the toughest around, but at the same time some of the most rewarding.  On our fall whitetail deer hunts we focus on the big woods backcountry within the Adirondack Park.  It is our main mission here at Adirondack Mountain and Stream to create a hunt for you that stacks the odds in your favor, be it with a rifle, muzzleloader, or bow we have the knowledge and experience to help you make your hunt successful.    So whether you prefer to hunt day to day and stay in one of are recommended bed and breakfasts or hotels here in the Adirondacks, or maybe you prefer to pack into the backcountry and hunt for an extended amount of time out of a tent camp, we can make it happen for you.  It’s your adventure and it is our goal to make it a memorable experience for you.

Here at Adirondack Mountain and Stream we also offer guided small game hunting, this means you don’t have to be just a deer hunter to experience the Adirondacks hunting seasons.  Within the park you will find an abundance of Snowshoe hare, grouse, woodcock, and varmints.  Rabbit hunting has become extremely popular amongst our customers.  All our hare hunting is done with our personally trained and owned beagles. We hunt all of our dogs with state of the art electronics, this makes keeping track of our hounds easier which means more time hunting.   Our hare hunting trips take place during the middle of December into the middle of March.

  Ruffed Grouse and woodcock hunting are also popular here in the park. With the fall colors around during this time of year it can be a very pleasant time to be in the woods. All of the upland game birds in the park are free range native birds making the hunting experience more rewarding if you’re lucky enough to get a good shot at one of those fast flying birds!  Have your own bird dogs?  Contact us and we would gladly help you set up a guided trip where you bring your own dogs.  Our ruffed grouse hunting starts in late September and goes to the end of February. 

If hunting coyote, fox or bobcats are your style or if you want to learn a thing or two about calling and hunting varmints, the park offers some challenging but rewarding varmint hunting. The majority of our varmint hunts take place from December to the end of March.  The winters months are usually are most productive. So if you think you have the patience and persistence to hunt varmints in the Adirondacks, give us a call or email us and let us help you get your Adirondack hunting adventure started!
