Bethlehem, NY

Postby rmontez » Wed Aug 03, 2011 8:28 am

Anyone in the area of Bethlehem NY that can help with a litle hunting advice? The company I work for in Wisconsin recently made a purchase of 61 acres of land in Bethlehem and I thought maybe it was time for a road trip for bow hunting. I've never hunted outside of WI so it seemed like a possibility. It was purchased from a farmer so maybe it is 61 acres of field and not worth making a trip for hunting? Just curious if anyone is from that area? How large of an area is that population wise? Is it more rural or country setting?

Thanks in advance
Rene

I don't know the area but I think if you can find out exactly where the land is, then see if you can find aerial photos with Google Earth or something similar.

That would be a good start, IMO.

Thanks bobow, I did get on google maps but the way they show the property it is devided by a road and from the description of the purchasing contract it is one track of land. Eventually I will just make a trip out there. It may be worth it so I can spend some time with the local DNR and see whay the fees are for out of state hunters. May not even be worth it?

Thanks again

I'm from WI, heading to my parents house in western NY near Batavia in a few weeks for my first out of state hunt. I paid $140 for my tag and bow license. The nice thing about the tag is that its good for either sex. I would like a nice buck, but will take a doe to avoid eating expensive tag soup.
