Seeking Hunting Land / Hunting Spot in NY

I am seeking permission to hunt on private land during the upcoming squirrel, turkey, deer and bear seasons. Anyone out there have a decent hunting spot available in NY state, southern zone, preferably Broome, Delaware or Chenango Counties for deer, bear and small game? We also are willing to try the Finger Lakes area and some others for deer hunting.

Willing to pay a reasonable fee per day/week of hunting for my son and I. We are responsible, law abiding, hunters, do not leave messes, observe your rules, are respectful of landowners and other hunters and so forth. We are serious about firearms' safety too.

I used to hunt my uncle's property near Windsor, NY but he sold out about 7 years ago and we have hunted state without much luck. I am trying to get away from the crowds on state land to a safer and quieter hunting area.

All the best,
Glenn B
When I look in the mirror, I am happy to see, some of that nine year old boy, who used to be me.

Join a shooting club. Opens all kinds of doors. You'll meet some great people too. May not help much for this year, but you never know.
You could knock on some farm house doors, politely asking if you can shoot varmints. That can lead to being allowed to come back in other seasons.
Don't go on Sunday, don't wear cammies or have a firearm in your hand. If you're told no, thank 'em and leave. Doesn't hurt to politely ask if they know anybody who might let you.
Doesn't sound like you need to be told to respect the land and close gates, etc. It is extremely important though.
Spelling and grammar count!
