Spent Saturday hunting/scouting my deer hunting area. There were 5 guys in camp in the ANF. DMAP tags galore were given out in this area. We had 1 archery hunter and 4 Turkey hunters and not a deer was seen, no droppings 1 rub and no tracks in the snow. Growing very disgusted with Pa deer management and qdma. Lots of food everywhere we were and bear, squirrels, grouse and turkeys just no deer. Guess to get a deer I'll have to hunt in Pittsburgh.
The hunting in pa for all game species is spotty at best. A combination of a lot of poor habitat, high predator numbers and an inept gameless commission. Because of this it will not change in the near future.
Nothing around my cabin either. We had 10 cameras out and quit putting them out because they were only seeing 1 or 2 deer. Haven't even seen any hunters since the 2nd week. We have been hunting other areas too.
