Hunting in the High Peaks
There's a great deal of wildlife in the one-million acres of public land in the Adirondacks that you can hunt in. Ranging from white-tailed deer to black bears, wild turkey, waterfowl, migratory game birds, small game wildlife and more.
The High Peaks Wilderness Area and the Sentinel Range Wilderness Area are two great places in the High Peaks to go hunting. The terrain is challenging and has put hunters to the test while they are out and about.
Hunting seasons as well as licensing and reporting requirements are all administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. If you have purchased a New York State hunting license before, you may order one on-line. Qualified hunters may also purchase licenses from town clerks and at many sporting goods stores.

Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK
The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
