PRICE REDUCED! 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 primarily 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. This property is mostly flat but with a handful of small rolling hills and topographical changes, allowing for easy access and mobility. A diversified mix of habitats is well-served for wildlife and white-tailed deer. Bears and turkey have been known to use the acreage, but the sign of deer is most prevalent and quite plentiful, with several well-used trails traversing the landscape while rutting signs 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. The edge of a wetland occupies a section of the property to create a fantastic in-wood 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 that needs an 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 hunt deer still or hunt small game among the tall stands of birch, maple, and groves of hemlock or those just looking for a place to unwind among the whispering trees and an avian chorus completely. 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 snowmobile trails of the Tug Hill. Forty-five minutes from Syracuse, less than 2 hours from Rochester or Binghamton, 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 states and regional metropolitan areas!
