Me and my friend, EvilChuck, want to split some acreage upstate to make a weekend getaway/hunting lodge. About 100 acres and some kind of stream/pond/view would be cool. About 3 hours or less from NYC would be awesome. Houses/cabins/barns would be a plus, but sooner or later we would each build a cabin for our families. Whos got suggestions?

At the price point and acreage you are looking for I would think somewhere in the Adironacks or Tug Hill Region. They are both more than 3 hours away from the City, though. You could also check out Schoharie County - but only shotgun hunting is allowed for big game. Do an internet search of upstate New York hunting land - you should get the names of local realty companies who can assist you.

Thank you for the help. The search idea is smart, I didnt think of searching that way. I'm looking a listing in Schoharie, beautiful lots of land, but no rifle hunting? I guess that means no rifle range? I need to call town hall and see if we can shoot targets with rifles/pistols in Scharie. Kinda tough to spell, isnt it?

No rifle hunting does not mean no rifle range. It means just what it says: no rifle hunting. There are bills in the state gov't to extend rifle hunting to much of the Southern Tier, BTW.

Vote for Sperry Navone, this is one of his pet projects that he is pushing through (in George Winners name).

So what else do I need to put on our checklist?

Cost of Septic? Is septic even allowed?

Electic/phone?

Drinking water? How much do wells typically cost? (or is there no typical?)

How much do ya think an 800 sg/ft cabin would cost to build? Prefab, or just let a local do it from scratch?

How much land do you guys think should be the minimum? I'd love the 100 acres or more, but would 50 or even 25 be enough if the property borders state land?

Can ya tell I'm excited?

Ever consider planting a little vineyard to make your own wine for guests? Make a label using a drawing of your lodges with a sunset over the mountains. (Just an idea) That way you can get nuisiance permits to hunt deer munching on your grapes in like the summer where most people can't find time in the appropriate seasons. Dunno if that depends on the area though.

Then when the wife retires either TX, AZ or if I am lucky Hawaii...............She don't want to go that far unless it's back to Panama.

PM me and I'll give you the name of a friend here in Herkimer/Oneida Co. area we are on the north/south line for hunting. about 4 1/2 hours from the city off the thruway.

Also even if youre not in northern rifle zone you can still have a rifle range in your back yard providing either youre 500 feet or more from a dwelling other than your own, or on land rented/leased by you. Just make a backstop large enough and sitiuated in such a way that if a round goes over the backstop, it'll hit a hillside that's behind it.

I second Herkimer county. @ 220 miles from the Tapazee you here in just over three hours. It the base of Adirondak MT range. A couple month ago there was a B&B listed w/ 200+ acres small stream, $63000. It was move in condition. Lots of deals like this in the area. Look in towns north of RT 28. Norway, poland, grey, Etc. IM if you need contacts in the area. -Justin

Somebody please tell Wade they raised the speed limit on the Thruway.

What about Sullivan County? Not sure of all the regs, but I think its pretty friendly to sportspersons. Not the best if you want quaint towns with lots of culture, but a pretty rural county and is pretty close to the city. There's even a Metro North train line that runs to Port Jervis.
