For 150 years the Inlet area has been a favorite place for sportsmen to hunt in the Adirondack Park. Inlet is surrounded by millions of acres of state owned land. Hunting in Inlet (with a NYS license) is a multi-season and multi-species sport. Many sportsmen arrive before the regular big game season for muzzle loading, bow hunting and early bear season. Whitetail deer are plentiful, and small game is also abundant here. Duck, turkey and snowshoe hare are just a sample.
