New York Guides
New York has some great trails and you may be surprised to learn that they rank amongst the best in the country. The Hudson Highlands State Park for example is a thrilling ascent from river-level up to a spectacular look out. The climb is arduous and there will be some strenuous rock scrambles. But overall, this 9.6-mile hike is something that every thrill seeker in New York should experience.
Another great trail is the Bear Mountain Loop. This strenuous trail is available throughout spring and fall and totals 9.7 miles in length. Do not attempt this trail in winter. Even in the summer it is classified as strenuous, and in the winter, it is simply dangerous.
New York Hunting Guides
Turkey hunting is big business in the state. Spring turkey season begins on May 1st and goes through to May 31st. Fall season is from October 1st to the 21st in the north and from October 22nd to November 18th in the south. The spring New York hunting hours start one half-hour before sunrise and go on until noon. In the fall, hunting is from sunrise until sunset.
Deer hunting tends to be richer in the south, but the north offers something slightly more challenging. Northern hunting involves following a trail for miles through the fresh snow and knowing your compass. Although the numbers are lower, many hunters prefer the north for this reason. If you are looking at the north, some good areas include St. Lawrence County and Essex county. In the south, Westchester County is a fine option for bow hunters. Back in 2009, 612 bucks were taken with a bow. The area has no public hunting land, so you will need to work with one of the New York hunting guides who owns or has access to private land.
New York Fishing Guides
You have some great opportunity to go offshore fishing in the state of New York. Some of the fish in the Atlantic Ocean are gargantuan. If you are looking for shark fishing, Montauk, on the eastern part of Long Island, has some of the best on the Eastern seaboard. Montauk has the most world record fish listed in the International Game Fish Association.
Back inland, there is some great trout fishing. One area that is looking very good this year is the Owasco Inlet. This used to be very productive around April-May, but now is one of the most consistent all-season locations. Most of the huge rainbows are no longer in the lake, but there are some great brown trout available. Nine Mile Creek has the best water quality of any creek in New York and is also producing some great brown trout.
