Extended hunt

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of heading do to Tompkins County Saturday...I have been messing with the map trying to find spots and thought id ask if anyone has been down.  I dont want any spots but would time be better spent in one of the parks ie Buttermilk/Truman or outside of the parks?  Worth the trip?  

 

Thanks for any info

The only public ground available are those two parks, and they are archery only.  Access/permission for private land can be difficult.  Good luck

With the DEC map and my OnX hunt maps there looks to be this Black Diamond Trail Park on the west side of the lake north of Ithaca.  Thoughts?  Thanks for the info.

I think that map may be misleading.  This was taken from the DEC website:

 

Available hunting lands include (links leave DEC's website):

  • Buttermilk Falls State Park (bowhunting and crossbow hunting only)
  • Robert H. Treman State Park (bowhunting and crossbow hunting only)
  • Hunters with legal access to private lands in the DMFA may also participate in the DMFA program.
  • There are no state forests or wildlife management areas within the DMFA.

It may be worth a call to the local office in Cortland.  I know the purpose of the trail was to connect Taughannok State Park to Cass Park, and it's generally pretty well-used by hikers.

Thank you!  I’ve never been down there so I am going blind. I’ll go into one of those parks and find a nice tree and I’m good.
