Wooded Seclusion With Stream & Timber Bordering NYS Land

Description

Located in the heart of the Leatherstocking Region, famous for its robust whitetail deer population, this mostly wooded property is well set back from the main road and offers undisturbed secluded habitat and terrain for hunting trophy bucks. There is a 950± foot long driveway into the main body of the property, where it then gently slopes downwards on both sides of al year-round stream, which cuts through the property, eventually leading to a series of successive, nice sized beaver ponds, providing a diverse habitat from forest to wetlands for whitetail, turkey, furbearers and waterfowl. Deer trails and tracks were abundant during the recent visit to the property, where the deer have plenty of cover and ideal habitat for feed/browse, including apple trees and acorns as well as brush for hiding and bedding down.  The property was logged several years prior, with subsequent ground cover and regrowth creating better wildlife habitat in those areas.  There are nice stands of hardwoods, including oak, maple, cherry, some mature now as well as younger timber for income-producing future harvests.   The property has nearly a one-mile long border along its back edge (~4790 feet) with the Texas School House State Forest, a 1254 acre wilderness with no designated trails (generally less visitors) and free access for hunting, hiking and fishing on its own 3 ponds and streams, one of which contains wild brook and brown trout. In fact, this property is only a short 240± foot walk from its border to the largest pond (over 13 acres of water) in the state land  There are many trails throughout this property, which are easy to walk or traverse by ATV.  The surrounding woods are vast expanses providing undisturbed areas where bucks can mature and the trails on the property offer easy lanes for bucks to move through the property and great strategic locations for tree stands throughout. There is electric available at the road. While this is a secluded location, there are a host of amenities less than a half-hour away in Cooperstown or Oneonta, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown Dreams Park, Cooperstown All-Star Village as well as other cultural attractions:  Fenimore Art Museum, Farmers Museum, Brewery Ommegang, Glimmerglass Theatre, Hartwick College and SUNY Oneonta.  Outstanding fishing awaits nearby on Otsego Lake covering 4046 acres with lake trout, walleye and perch among many others, public beach and NYS Park as well as fantastic boating recreation on this pristine lake.  The property is one hour, 20 minutes from Binghamton, Albany is 1.5 hours and it’s just over 3 hours to the George Washington Bridge/NYC area.
