How bad is Stewart State Forest during bow season?

Recommended Posts

That place can be pretty packed on the weekends during regular season, how is it during bow?

I have a 3M DMP that I would rather not see go to waste.

i agree i have been going there for 20 years and since the state took over it is all down hill .no rules no patrolling no one there to help you if needed . use to be 3 people per car park in signed parking hunt that spot . not any more i saw a bus with 8 people in it and they dropped one at a time off as they went down the road . the sad thing is it wont clean up till someone gets hurt out there . i hate to say it but it should be shut down for a few years . ( and i love it over there ) but it is crazier now

I was hunting pheasant there 2 years ago and thought the area is heading for an accident. There are bikers, hikers, and birders mixed in with hunters. The non hunters are in there without blaze orange on. Not safe at all, and you can bet those folks don't want the hunters in there

Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought. Thanks for the warning. I may try to take a day off during the week in MZ and try it out.

The above is even more true today at Stewart. More Crowded then ever.
