I searched the web for New York State landowner liability and found the document linked below. It looks a little dated but the content might be accurate.
Then I searched this CornellForestConnect site and noticed that the posts on this topic here were from 2012 - 5 years ago.
I need to confirm for someone else the basic liability facts of owning forest land in NY. If the attached doc is correct, it contains all the info I need. Would someone please review it for accuracy and post any updates for all of us?
Thank you, and best of luck with your deer hunting!
