    HTC have you hunted the Adirondacks before? I’ve been thinking about switching it up with a unique whitetail hunt... lake of the woods, adirondacks, or smoky mountains.

    All my life, my dad built a camp there 4 years before I was even a thought. Out of state license is 100.00 bucks which includes a buck and bear tag that run concurrent. How reasonable is that? We hunt 15,000 acres of private that is surrounded by 100 times that in state land. My camp sits at the bottom of the mountain below, as far as you can see is mostly open to the public and has little pressure. Big country though, it is not like hunting the SLP.

    I have been to the UP a bunch but never hunted there, so some specualtion here. The deer density per square mile is low so that is probably about the same. The terrain is either up or down.....Pine swamps, rivers, ponds and vast stetches of maple, ash, beech and cherry. If you are looking for oaks you are in the wrong place, if you are looking for granite boulders you hit the motherload. Like the UP, rough winters is the biggest factor on the deer herd. Little to no agriculture in the heart of the mountains. Opening day in the adirondacks is pretty much meaningless. Unlike the SLP there just is not the pressure and the area so vast that the deer don't change up their routines. It is a long season, it always opens the 3rd Saturday in October and runs into December. Most guys wait until the second half of November so the leaves are all down and there is some snow. The up side, bucks have a chance to grow here...and some big boys are taken off from our place every year. Like the UP, the pictures from back in the 40's and 50's are cool. 10 -15 really big bucks strapped to several old cars and everyone wearing old woolrich jackets.
