    Hunting is off limits on AMR property (Ausable Club) out of Keene Valley. A nice fall hike in that area is to Indian Head. Hiking any of the mountains from that starting point would put you in a no hunting zone near the car and once you get very far from the car you usually don't run into hunters. My experience with hunters is that they usually like to throw their kill on an ATV and drive it out. Can you tell I'm not a hunter?

      Could a person going up to Mt. Marcy get hit by a stray bullet?
      The best, the most successful adventurer, is the one having the most fun.

          a person going up mt. marcy could also get hit by a stray coconut.

            True enough... Of course you'd be just as likely to get hit by a stray bullet as you drove up the northway to the trail head. (that is to say... extremely UNlikely).

              Or maybe two swallows flying with the coconut suspended by a string... but the real question would be... what would be the airspeed velocity?

                you're prolly much more likely to get hit by a stray bullet while driving since, as it's been pointed out here - most hunters [epsecially the less responsible ones] don't like to go too far from the road.

                any hunter that's serious enough to hike in miles is not gonna be taking 'pot shots'

                  You're far more likely to get hit by another car or a deer on your way to the trailhead, than a hunter’s bullet.
                  A man needs to believe in something. I believe I'll go hiking.

                      My point is, if I'm getting this right, it's legal to hunt all over the high peaks region. I'm totally flabbergasted. That's all. I think I'll wear a bright orange jersey on my next trip. So why not have the hunters weed out all the habituated bears from the Marcy Dam - Flowed Lands corridor before setting up the bear cannister law? They could use packs hung in trees as bear bait.
                      Seriously, I could pack a gun up the trail to, say, Gothics if I felt like it and maybe fire off a few rounds for practice? Michael Moore where are you?

                        Uh, is that an African or a European Swallow?

                          Most hunters won't hunt where they know they will run into people. Other people in the hunting area scare away game. Plus most hunters understand it isn't safe to fire a gun in an area where they might hit a person.

                            also, imagine carrying out a 400# bear back 5 miles to the car.
