Hunting Moose River Plains in the Adirondacks

First off welcome to the forum. From your bio I would guess that you live in the Ilion area Think .

Have never hunted the plains myself. My Adk hunting is done mostly in the Cranberry Lk and Tupper Lk areas. The plains will be busy this weekend since the NY State Muzzle Loading As has their yearly get together up at Limkiln for opening of the season every year.

Still I do belive that I am correct in saying that in the past 5 years more "book" deer have come out of the plains than any other spot in Northern (not talking central here) New York. It is a huge area with areas of very limited access. The big bucks are there but they wont come easy.
Luck to ya

Sounds like a good time. You going to camp out or do the hotel thing?
Was just up to Tupper for 4 days with the muzzleloadres but man was it to hot! 75 degrees and the skeeters were still out and a bother. Saw one deer. Could use to loose a few more leaves in the understory.

Will be bow hunting in CNY this weekend but back up to the North Woods on the 29th or 30th.

Good luck up on the plains and post a few photos of the trip. Take a shotgun with you. Plunty of grouse up in the Adk's this year, got three last friday afternoon walking the roads around camp.
