Hawking in the Oneonta area
Among the many hills that stretch into the region, fertile, flat valleys and farmland abound in the Oneonta area – and with them come suitable sites to hunt squirrel, rabbit, turkeys, small avian prey and more.
- Region 4 Director Charley Koop is the resident expert there, and he has secured several large private sites for us.
- Charley’s property, located just 20 minutes from the hotel, will be the site for the release of pheasants, for those who choose this option.
- The Oneonta region is also home to several state parks that are available to us for this meet.
- In addition, we will be providing all meet participants with area road names and route numbers that offer good “free style” hunting. As always, we recommend that you knock on local doors, introduce yourself and ask permission to hunt the property first.
