Even if it was mostly volunteer labor that moved the lean-to in question, my point is that effort would be better directed towards other projects.

Is there any reason for the APA making that recommendation in the first place?

It seems like the State Land Master Plan essentially becomes gospel, and yet there isn't always clear onus on the APA...

I've seen plenty of sign in the weeks leading up to start of regular season (northern zone). Went to one of my pre-scouted spots this weekend and, sure-enough, I ran into a doe (no rifle DMP's for...

Deer Season 2018

Mast crop seems decent in some areas. I’ve seen lots of deer tracks and scat while out bear hunting (and I’ve probably bumped a few deer at this point).

It is a bit of a war zone. You either need to bowhunt (its usually less crowded) or get into some private land. Public land in western NY is too much of a cluster during the rifle season.
