Hunting Spots in Jefferson County

3972 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Sstarr56
I moved up to NY from Indiana in January and have been trying to find some mushroom hunting locations. I'm looking for general spots to look around in Jefferson County. Preferably public land. I live near Carthage and have been looking throughout Beartown State Forest the last couple days. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I work in Watertown during the day, so any areas near there are welcome too. Thanks.

Just some encouragement. My sister accidentally found a few in Dexter last week.

Thanks. I appreciate the suggestions. I will check them out this weekend.
I have a camp in the middle of the jadwin forest ,was there this weekend,only thing i found was the black flies were a fierce,good luck hunting,i have not even found any here where i live in fulton county
Hogsback may not be a bad idea. Go thru natural bridge on rt3. Hogsback rd is about 3 miles outside of town on the right. Ive heard of dome people finding them there.
Thanks for the replies. I tried Hogsback last weekend. Didn't find anything and the flies were horrible. I plan to try again this evening out that way.
My girlfriend and I found these tonight.

Just some encouragement. My sister accidentally found a few in Dexter last week.
