Default Does anybody hunt Allegany County NY?

I am brand new to this message board. I have read many of the posts and can tell that the contributors to this board are very dedicated, knowledgeable and hardcore.
I have a question that I'm hoping some of you New York hunters can help me out with. I am currently considering buying a parcel of land in Alleganey County. It is about 100+/- acres that are 2/3 wooded and 1/3 open meadow. The property looks very appealing but I have no experience hunting in that region of New york state. Are there many (any?) mature bucks in this county? Is the county overhunted? I know from the stats that this county produces a high number of deer but also there is quite a large "army" of hunters who pound the woods there shooting many, many 1-1/2 year old bucks. Does anybody know of any QDM efforts being looked at for this region of NY (similar to what PA is doing)? Any replies would be helpful........Thanks

Allegany County is very good hunting country but also gets a lot of pressure. Steuben County to the east is probably the best county in NY for # of deer and big buck. Most of the bucks in Allegany are 1.5 year old. I love to bowhunt in Allegany but avoid it during gun. There are tons of hunting camps that are filled with city hunters from Rochester, Niagara Falls and Buffalo. Fights over property boundaries, posted land etc. etc. are commonplace. The state land gets hit hard during gun. 100 acres is a decent spread and if it borders an active farm that would be a good purchase. If it is surrounded by hunting camps I would be hesitant.

If it is in WMU 9Y in Andover then buy it. No public land in that WMU, all farms and the hunting is great. Not far from state land in Town of Ward and West Almond also.

I've hunted Steuben County for over 40 years. Alleghany is the next one over. It's good for sure, but I'd second remarks by Newtown. Earlier season bowhunting is one thing. Gun season and the "orange army" may be another. If the price is right, I'd still jump on it.
