Hunting in the Lake Champlain region

Experience hunting in the Lake Champlain region!

Hunting seasons, as well as licensing and reporting requirements, are administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. If you have purchased a New York state hunting license before, you may order one on-line. Qualified hunters may also purchase licenses from town clerks and at many sporting goods stores.

Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
