Re: Anyone from pa

Looks like this thread has slowed down but I thought I would chime in anyway. I am close to Gettysburg. Have lived and hunted in PA all my life. Except for the 4 1/2 years I was in the Air Force. My cousin and I are looking to get into long range hunting. My dad had a rifle built specifically for that in the late 70's early 80's. One awesome looking and shooting gun. It's a 7mm/300 WBY Mag. Interarms Mark X action, Douglas air gauged 28" SS Barrel topped with a Nikon 3-12X50 scope. The stock was custom made by my dad. Cherry and curly maple laminated, monte carlo style with thumbhole and rosewood tip and pistol grip cap. Has produced a little over a 5" group at just over 600 yards in the past. Our thoughts on long range hunting kind of passed when my dad passed away in 94 from Lou Gerhigs disease. That and with my cousin and I getting married and having kids(Not with each other, thats in WV LOL), you know how that is with money and time. We are looking to check out some places in Centre, Clinton, Potter, Lycoming and Tioga counties. No roadside stuff here, we are planning on packing in. This year I was stuck in Adams County and had a really long shot there. Killed a big doe on a private farm at about 25yards with a 243. LOL Was hoping to see a small buck since my cousin's 10 yr old was with me. Think its dumb that the mentored youth hunters can only shoot a buck. Didn't see a buck worth shooting this year in rifle season. Had a new guy on farm that had things all messed up. How do you think you are going to see deer when at the best shooting hours you are walking around the edge of the field the deer are watching from the woods to come out into to feed? Just another reason to pack back in for a few days and hunt long range. Hope everyone had a safe and successful season.

Re: Anyone from pa

I live in Md. but 95% hunt Pa. I grew up hunting southern Pa. Bedford county. I own some small acreage and hunt on neighboring property. Our hunting has went down in years. however i killed the largest buck ever last season 8 point 211/2 " My area doesent normally produce like this mainly scrub bucks. We have mature 4 points walking around . When it comes to hunting especially i found out the hard way. All for me , **** you. I lost a 28 year friendship i valued last year over a deer i shot on my own property. I stole something from neighborhood was told to me. I always got with neighbors and helped drive , never brought any " out of staters " in to hunt always came by my self. The first day of muzzleloader season my cabin that was there for 14 years got broke in to. What did they take an old bow and my hunting clothes. Didnt take a gun , or honda 4 wheeler sitting outside. Police even told me it sounded like a payback. I have watched other people around me though when deer season comes. Its something we have to accept, like Kevin said he would not share his spots. I dont blame him and that doesent mean he is a prick. I have watched the mentality in the area i hunt and it can be real funny. Even though im accepted because of family roots, these people hate Md. But the funny part is most goes to Md to make a living. I feel we are all americans and state boundary lines is minor. We do have some nice state ground 2 miles down the road from my place, i actually feel it is Pa. best kept secret. I am really going to get in to it next season and hopefully find some places to stretch my barrel.
Mike
