Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center Second Saturday Programs



Saturday, November 14, 2015 – 1:00pm – 4:00pm


Hunting in the Catskills will be the topic for the November 14th NEW ‘SECOND SATURDAY’ program series  presented each month at 1 pm at the Catskill Interpretive Center located 5096, Route 28, Mt. Tremper.  Our first presentation will feature Charles “Sonny” Somelofski, NYS Licensed Guide and well-known outdoors expert, who will lead the conversation around the hunting traditions, its heritage and current factors needed to know to enjoy hunting in the Catskills today.


We will learn about the species hunted, pre-requisites for hunting including, hunter training and safety courses, licenses and permitting, and access to hunting lands including DEC and DEP lands and maps.


Know how to plan your hunting trip, clothing and gear, game restrictions and knowing your limits. Meet others who have long experience in tracking, creating blinds and tree stands and insure that you do your research in how to handle and preserve your harvest.


“For many people hunting is not just a sport. Hunting can be a way of life, putting a person in touch with nature” notes Sonny Somelofski, owner of Catskill Outdoor Adventures, Sonny, past owner of the Tremperskill Store in Andes has established Catskill Outdoor Adventures to continue to offer fishing, hunting and photography excursions to remote and semi-remote sections of the Catskills. “Our remote trips are specially tailored for every person – from the office worker to the hearty outdoorsman. Catskill Outdoor Adventures enables any person to get back to nature.”  Visit: or 845-586-1632.
