I have been there
Have done a little deer hunting in happy valley (very little). It is close enough to Syracuse that when the Northern Tier (whitch happy valley is in) seasons open it gets a lot of hunting pressure.
I am sure that the NYSDEC web page has info on HV.
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
