PA - 2013

Post by mac »

Headed down to PA for our annual Mid October Muzzleloader/Archery combo hunt.. On the last Saturday morning we saw collectively a 4pt, 7pt, 8pt, 10pt and 6 does. I harvested my second archery buck of the season. The short version is I had my eyes on a 115'-120" 8pt but it just did not work out as the smaller 7pt got skittish... Unfortunately for the 7pt he stopped in my shooting lane and we all enjoy venison..

My cousin and I harvested two does with our muskets during the week.. Special hunt this year as we had 3 generations of VTfishin family hunting together for the first time.

I'll Let VTFishin post the story of his beautiful 11pt taken in PA.

My late Dad hunted in Montrose in Susquehanna County from 1980-1996 both regular season buck and the special doe season with multiple tags christmas week. Great memories and tons of deer. Good eating. I went about 4 times with him.

Nice deer!

PA has changed since the 90's as the deer population is better balanced with the habitat. I see less deer than the 90's but more rack buck opportunities.

Gas Co. Drilling is changing the habitat as well and it should be interesting to see the impact. The gas companies are planting clover for the deer on the gas line right of ways and pump stations.

PA has a lot to offer the deer hunter as there are large tracks of Public Ground.

Interesting.

Back in the day the public hunting lands were heavily pressured and few deer were on them. My Dad hunted private land (we had a lease for exclusive rights) and the same spot for 17 years before he passed in 1997.

Congrats on the buck!
