Mixed Habitat Hunting Tract in Finger Lakes Region


Accessible directly from the road the sloping topography of this forested tract is easily traversed and features several benches that provide cover to wildlife or potential building sites. The diverse series of hardwood and softwood trees create a number of micro habitats and edge cover that deer and other wildlife can thrive within. Dense stands of cover offer excellent bedding areas while several cuts and drainages create funnels and pinch points along the hillside that might not otherwise exist in a mostly-timbered tract. An abundant number of buck rubs and scrapes dot the property, with numerous well-used deer trails weaving along its topography showing excellent deer hunting opportunity. This property has a wide-ranging diversity of trees including several species of conifer and mixed hardwood and softwood stand on its northern section. Augmenting the property’s own hunting and recreational potential is the area’s access to thousands of acres of public lands at either Coon Hollow or Maple Hill State Forests, both just minutes away, while the Finger Lakes National Forest is also within close reach. Each offers hunting, fishing, camping, hiking and other recreational opportunities. Additional hunting and recreational opportunities can also be found nearby including the world-class fishing of Seneca Lake, the amenities of Watkins Glen and the Watkins Glen Speedway. Nearly equal driving distance west is Bath, NY or to the south Corning, NY which also offer a number of additional conveniences and access to the 390 expressway. To experience the full series of virtues this property presents please contact me today to discuss it further or book your own private showing.
