South Meadow Lake Placid

Hi all.

Looking for information on regulations on hunting in this area of the High Peaks?

Regs are no different than anywhere else in the Northern Zone. Just read the regs guide. Plenty of state land around, bear canisters required for camping. But then again, perhaps you might be hunting bear and the High Peaks are a good spot for that!

From there, the other tabs should get you the information on methods, season, etc.

From the UMP: (https://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/lands_fo...pdf/hpwump.pdf)
"Hunting pressure for big game originates principally from points around the
perimeter of the unit, such as St. Huberts, Keene Valley, Averyville, along Route 3, and
along the Ampersand Lake road. The area around Newcomb Lake and Moose Pond, South
Meadows, and the eastern shore of Long Lake are popular camping places for hunting
parties."

As long as you are on the State land, it is my sense that it is general Northern Zone regulations.

I bet bear around south meadow taste preety good compared to the average bear. Instead of eating all the nasty crap they usually do, they get lots of candy bars and peanut butter!
And a few mre's can't hurt.

I can assume there are many bears seen in the South Meadow area?

Have no idea on the population there - all I remember as a kid was the bears making the rounds to every campsite at Marcy Dam and having a feast.
