HUNTING is another reason to travel to Black Lake. The Northern St. Lawrence County area of Upstate New York has some of the finest hunting that can be found in the entire United States.

Spring gobblers in May. Small Game, Turkey and Duck in September and early October. Big Game Archery season in September/October with Muzzleloader in October followed by Regular rifle. Thousands of acres of Wildlife Management Areas and State Forest lands are available just a short drive from Black Lake.
