Well, my buddies and I have lost yet another property to a land sale. A nice gravel pit area with farm country all around has really put some deer in the freezers for us over the past 7-8 years.
With that said I've been looking at properties via the internet satellite imagery (Will post another thread with links), and I've located 10 funnel-type areas on the West side of Canandaigua lake in the Bristol Hills.
The reason I've been looking there is that over the past 15 years or so I've become familiar with that side of the lake, both by traveling RT 21 north and south to Alfred for college, and other things. There are always TONS of deer over there and generally in the Naples/High-Tor Area as well. So...
I'm wondering if this IS the hottest part of our state for deer hunting or not? I don't know where to look for that info (Deer densities) so I just might call DEC and ask, but I wondered what you folks would know about it.
After all, If I want to kill BIG bucks I have to go where there's a good to great chance of running into one.
Thanks in advance. Hope you all have a safe and lucky season!
