Reading about the West Valley project does worry me..

What do you think about the Cassadaga area? Much to do there? I noticed there are a lot of houses on big parcels of land there (30-40 acres) which is our ideal. Looks more flat than other areas though- wondering if flooding is an issue around there? Is there a community center at all or do most people just head to Fredonia for their shopping and such?

Those are all tiny towns in the middle of nowhere. If that is what you want. Right in the middle of the snow belt.

Perfect on both counts. My husband especially is SUPER excited about all the snow and middle of nowhere is what we’re used to and love. 😊 Still 15 minutes from Fredonia businesses and an hour from Erie and Buffalo. Just hoping there’s some hiking around there and we’ll be able to hunt our property.

Gowanda,Collins, Perrysburg, Cattaragus. Homes are cheaper there. Forget East Aurora. if it's the outdoor life you crave, those are the areas to look at. You have the Zoar Valley, numerous public lands to hike hunt fish. Allegheny state park, allows hunting and has cabins for rent. Western NY is a sportsmans paradise. Donkey size deer abound. Turkey, grouse, pheasant, waterfowl galore.
Lake Erie has world class smallmouth, brown trout. You can hunt "sea ducks" on Erie too. Be live it or not a lot of good shooting occurs in the niagra River.

check this https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/7844.html

do Google and watch on YouTube Cattaragus Creek Steelhead fishing. World class!
don't forget about 18 mile creek too. If I didn't love saltwater fishing so much, I would call WNY my home.

Didn't you pose a similar question in the Maine or New Hampshire board?

Good luck, it's worth it, and way more game than New England .

Matt, yep grew up in Dunkirk but have lived in Alaska for 10 years. Looking to get back closer to family now that we have a kid.

Drinkthekoolaid, I just would prefer to live east of Dunkirk, where I'd be taking county highways to visit family, and avoiding using the thruway to commute to work (wherever that will be). I hate driving alongside all the semis- I've seen them drifting across the lane lines too many times, and there have been a few times trucks have tried to change lanes as I was passing them.

grouse, this is all good to know! Thanks! I did post a similar question on the Maine board! Was thinking of moving there but decided I'd rather be 30 miles from family as opposed to a full day's drive. We can always (and will) vacation to Maine. :-)
