I lived near Bethlehem and went to school in California PA. I hunted south of Bethlehem and sometimes my uncle took me up to the Poconos. My old hunting grounds are now developed with hi end homes. Too bad, it was a nice spot.

I'm in Bozeman now and the hunting and fishing out here is great. I have the opportunity to shoot up to 3 antelope, 2 or more deer an elk and draw possibilities for sheep, goat and moose, but the odds are high. When opening morning of the general season comes you here an occasional shot but no war. Opening morning of antelope in some areas will have some gunfire but not like PA was or is.

Where are you located and how is the hunting for you?

Howdy Ackleyguy, Actually I met a young guy out here who is from near Brownsville. His folks (I met them too) have a small farm out there, but I don't know him well enough to ask to hunt out there and who knows when I wiuld ever make it back.

Yeah, that is some good deer country out there. Was your buck a 10 pt?

I graduated in 79 and played rugby at Cal, how about you?

Thanks for the offer and I'll keep it in mind. If you ever get out to Montana to hunt, give me a buzz prior, I'll be glad to give you as much intel as I can.

Small world, I graduated from CUP a couple of years ago too. Still live close by, but work in Kittanning, PA. Ackleyguy, you don't think anyone in Fayette County would be out poaching trophy Whitetail, do you? You are right though about knowing someone here, the posting keeps getting worse, especially in Greene.

Wow, I dated a girl from Kittanning while going to Cal. Sally Snyder. I think her dad owned a gravel pit.
