‘Deal Of Century’ to Open 70,000 Adirondack Acres to Public Hunting

The “deal of the century” has outdoorsmen throughout the Northeast eagerly planning forays into nearly 70,000 acres of Adirondack wilderness teeming with deer, moose, and bear that, in some areas, hasn’t been hunted since the Civil War.

The “deal of the century” has outdoorsmen throughout the Northeast eagerly planning forays into nearly 70,000 acres of Adirondack wilderness teeming with deer, moose, and bear that, in some areas, hasn’t been hunted since the Civil War as New York State proceeds with its $50 million acquisition of former Finch, Pruyn & Co. timberlands by 2017.

The Adirondack Park Agency voted 11-0 on Dec. 13 to classify 161,000 acres of former Pruyn lands in New York’s vast Adirondack Park. More than 69,000 acres in more remote, interior areas suitable for backcountry activities will be classified as wilderness, while more than 89,000 acres in more accessible areas will be classified as wild forest, allowing snowmobiling and vehicular access.

Public hearings will be held on the proposed classifications in 2014. Once the designations are approved, the New York Department of Conservation (DEC) will develop unit management plans, which will include input garnered during public hearings.
