At least overnight, if not several days.

Done it a fair amount of times in the Adirondacks. Fairly easy to do. Just think, LIGHT. Are you using a canoe? What type of camping equip.?

Nothing yet. I am just trying to learn about the particulars of the North East. Almost all of what I have seen regarding backpack hunting involves mule deer, elk or sheep out west.

Lots of opportunities in the North East. I speak mainly of the 'dacks because it is there I am MOST familiar. If your looking for an area where you can walk out of your tent and just go, without seeing human or posted signs, still with an opportunity to take a mature deer, do some research on the Five Ponds Wilderness Area and St. Regis Canoe Carry Area.

Both are primitive lands, no motor vehicles, no engines { gas or electric }, Thousands upon thousands of wilderness and forests. Both offer a diverse topography, and fairly easy access, and decent hunting, but it isn't for the out of shape.

Be happy to help further if there's an interest.

I may go in the Catskills this season. I am still trying to figure out how to pack and carry out of the woods. I enjoy the info, thanks.
