Hunt ABC Ranch

ABC Ranch is located in Canisteo, NY in Steuben County – the south central part of New York State. We raise Hereford cattle and own 2500 acres of land which is all posted. In 1996 we started our own Quality Deer Management Program. We fill all our Doe Permits with mature does, and harvest only 8 points or better bucks, with the inside spread reaching beyond the outside tips of their ears. There are no game fences on our farm and all hunting is fair chase. Steuben County is home to arguably the best fair chase Whitetail Deer Hunting in the Country!

We have two camps on the main property, which have all the conveniences of home. Propane heat, a bunk room which sleeps six, a kitchen, a living room, a bathroom with shower, washer & dryer, and Dish TV. Each camp has roughly 1000 acres which they have exclusive hunting rights to. We allow bow, crossbow, shotgun, & muzzleloader at our main property. Sorry, no rifles allowed on our Main Property.

We have a third camp in Greenwood, NY. Roughly 20 miles from our main property This camp has 200 acres of huntable property. Propane heat, 2 bedrooms, 1 bunk room and 1 master bedroom, kitchen, living room, dinning room, bathroom with shower, Dish TV, washer & dryer, & all major appliances. We allow bow, crossbow, shotgun, rifle, & muzzleloader on our Greenwood Property.

ABC Ranch is an operational cattle farm located in the hills of Canisteo, NY and is owned by Dr. A. Bryon Collins. We have been raising Black Baldy and Herefords for 50 years. 6 miles of Finger Lakes trail hiking run through the property for guests to enjoy and there is also a functioning cidery with taproom and restaurant located on the property. When you are done with your hunt, enjoy a drink and dinner by the stone fireplace in our lodge-style taproom, called Cider Creek Hard Cider.

Continuing Traditions

Chip Collins, pictured here, started running the hunting camps on ABC Ranch 21 years ago. On May 8, 2016, Chip passed away unexpectedly. We have decided to continue the tradition that he started, and that he shared with many of you, alive on the ranch. His spirit, his love of the land, and, love for the season will live forever on ABC Ranch.
