Secluded Big Woods Hunting Acreage With Access To Public Land


Tucked away from traffic nearly a mile from the main road this privately-accessed, fully timbered haunt provides an excellent opportunity for those who like to keep things casual or get up and move. The deeded right-of-way travels along several other property lines but is mostly high and dry, well maintained and easily traveled with an AWD or 4WD vehicle and could possibly be accessed by passenger car during dry times. Mostly flat but with a handful of small rolling hills and topographical changes, this property allows for easy access and mobility. A diversified mix of habitat is well-served for wildlife and white-tailed deer. Bears and turkey have been known to use the acreage but sign of deer is most prevalent and quite plentiful with several well-used trails traversing the landscape while rutting sign of rubs and scrapes are generously scattered throughout. Deer appear to travel to the adjacent agricultural fields to feed while using the in woods areas for security, bedding and cover. Due to its location the parcel provides exclusive access to a portion of Happy Valley Wildlife Management Area’s sprawling 8,898 acres. Additional access to an adjacent Oswego County land holding gives the feel of an expanded footprint, while letting the owners roam the area’s big woods expanse. A section of the property is occupied by the edge of a wetland to create a fantastic in-woods seam that deer appear to use for both travel and bedding with high frequency. Nestled in the center of the parcel is an old trailer in need of overhaul but could provide a rustic and removed place to stay once renovated. This is an ideal piece of land for someone who loves to still hunt deer or hunt small game among the tall stands of birch, maple and groves of hemlock or those just looking for a place to completely unwind among the whispering trees and an avian chorus. Situated between Altmar and Williamstown, access to each town is quick and easy via Rt 13 while nearby Rt. 104 provides expeditious travel to area attractions and amenities including the trout and salmon steeped water of the Salmon River, the shores of the Thousand Islands Region or the famed winter snow mobile trails of the Tug Hill. Approx. 45 minutes from Syracuse, approx. 2 hours from Rochester or Binghamton, approx. 2.5 hours to Albany and approximately 5 hours from NYC and Long Island. This contrasting wooded respite is readily accessible from all the major state and regional metropolitan areas! This desirable piece or property is unlikely to last long on the market, contact me today to schedule your own private showing.
