Now the Byberry site has been cleared and some kind of housing is going up and no hunting signs all over the place.
my wife lived on southampton rd. just in from the bulyvard, (as her father called it ) he worked at byberry. the place was loaded with game back then. (40 yrs. ago.) you may not remember, but we used to have colorful birds called pheasants. people used to actually hunt for them because they were plentiful. byberry was loaded with them. i lived in trevose as a kid. street rd. was 2 lanes its whole legnth. pheasants were everywhere. as recently as 20 yrs. ago you could ride around potter co. and easily see 100 deer in an evening. now you wont see that many in a month. as you may know, the game commission is being sued over the way theyve mismanaged the deer herd. but all is not lost, fast eddie has spent millions developing a tourism industry for people to go look at the elk. if youve never experienced or witnessed long range hunting in pa. you wont be far from the hub.
