Black Flies: They’re legendary in the Adirondacks and this year they’re proving why. The Adirondack black flies are out in full force. If you’ve been hiking, camping, fishing or just setting out some trail cameras then you know what we’re talking about. If you haven’t been to the North Country lately and are planning to, be forewarned. The reason is likely all the rain we’ve had this spring. Black flies like running water, and that includes the smallest trickle and we’ve had plenty of it. You just have to accept that it comes with the territory. Enjoy!
Now it’s time to move into the summer months. That is typically a quiet time for this website. However, we do try to keep things updated with news items and such. And, we encourage all New York residents to keep an eye on things in Albany were a number of gun bills are either on the floor or could be. One that is of particular concern is A722, which would ban hunting contests, including big buck contests. Even that little hunting camp wagers would be taboo. Read about it here: https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2019/a722, and be sure to contact your legislators. Meanwhile, stay tuned to this website, Facebook and any and all outdoor-related publications for updates as summer presses on.
