    How are those N.Y whitetails? It my understanding you have less pressure on the deer on average over there. Here in Michigan lots of areas have some serious hunting pressure.

    It's because when you say your from NY most people think NYC. So north of Westchester is upstate.
    Like 50 yrs ago when Westchester was the Country.:noidea:

    We've got some high pressure areas here too, but we also have alot of are as that don't get pressured. The area where Bowman and I are gets some pressure from hunters from the city. We are about 1-2 hours north of NYC, and we have alot of public lands.
    Another 2 hours north is the Adirondack state forest, lower pressure and big bucks, and Nothern Zone season opens just over 2 weeks:clap2:

    From Gouverneur, NY (45min N. of Watertown). There was some beautiful State Land here, about 4500 acres, 5 minutes from the house. Almost no pressure because most people didn't go in there. (some story about too much iron in the soil and the compass wouldn't work and too much land to get lost in) But recently the neighboring farm sold to a developer who turned it into about 20 camps:Cry: . No you can't move in there without seeing someone else with a shoot'em up attitude.:mad:

    Hi, welcome. I just joined this site a week and a half ago and it's been nice and helpful. Nice people...

    I'm at the border of Northwestern Illinois and Iowa (Rock Island, IL). I used to work at a big 6 consulting firm and sepnt a lot of time in Westchester, NY. That's a really nice area around there, especially out near the Westchester County Airport. I've heard NY state is a really nice place out of the cities but really never experienced that. I only had the experience in Westchester and going to NYC all the time for business. I'll pass on NYC...

    Hunting pressure is only bad around here during black powder and shotgun seasons. Bowhunting is the method of choice here for sure if you want to fill a freezer. There's not a lot of people and a lot of farm land. A lot of the local farmers will give you hunting permission, archery only, for a case of beer or two if you ask nicely and show respect to them. The group I'm in has 6 places in the area that we hunt. We've been working on stands the past couple of weekends. October is coming up fast...
