In the years that followed, other conservation easements were drafted differently, so that the vast majority of hunting clubs in other parts of the Park haven't been disrupted or evicted. But the fate of the Champion hunting clubs, including the Trailz End, has remained a source of bitterness until now. On Friday, the APA voted 8-to-1 to revise the land use permit for the private land portion of the deal, so that a total of 220 cabins will be allowed to remain as leaseholders.
Kudos to the Adirondack Park Agency. It's nice to see hunting get equal consideration as other recreational activities on public land. Anyone else have a cherished hunting camp on public land?
