Bucks Brook Whitetail Haven with Camp and Stream


PRICE REDUCED Pristine hunting retreat privately nestled in a wooded location bordering 2178 acres of Bucks Brook State Forest on one side and agricultural fields on the other. It is a natural draw for whitetail with a scenic stream that runs through the center of the property along the base of a gently sloped gully. This is an area of NYS that is renown for diverse wildlife and hunting. There were major deer trails and multiple buck rubs in evidence. Mostly wooded, there is a mix of hardwoods and pine, with some mature timber ready for harvest including some really nice mature hemlocks. Along the ridges, it is great deer and wild turkey habitat with wild apple trees, cover for deer as well as open agricultural fields on one side. There are plentiful former logging trails throughout the property providing walking and ATV access as well as a very nice-sized rustic cabin with spring fed water, composting toilet and loft area with overall space to sleep several people comfortably. The property is accessible on two sides, with a right of way into the property at the dead end of a seasonal use town road. The property is approx. 2.5 miles from the village of South Otselic, and the Otselic River known for its great trout fishing and home of the NYS Fish Hatchery. Located in a private, yet convenient location just approx. 25 minute drive to Norwich, offering stores and restaurants, just approx. 50 minutes to Binghamton, approx. 1 hour to Syracuse and approx. 3.5 hours to NYC/George Washington Bridge. This affordable property would make a great base camp and offers the new owner thousands of acres of State Land right in your “back yard” to enjoy year-round for free,  including hiking, hunting, fishing, trapping, snowmobiling in addition to a diverse wildlife population in this area of NYS.
