I used to have to work it. The Bucks Co WCO had her patrol vehicle window shot out with buckshot while we were parked next to her talking to her . The place needs to he hunted, but I wouldn't hunt there. That said, I never heard of anyone getting shot during the hunt.

I hunted it many many years ago twice, back when I lived in delco. It really wasn't that bad, at least from what remember. I got a doe out of there on one of the hunts. I do remember the game wardens patrolled quite often inside the park while the hunt was going on. They stopped and made me work the action on my shotgun to make sure I had it unloaded. I had it leaning up against the truck in that space between the cab and bed.
Riddley Creek was not nearly as bad to work as Tyler State park. The anti hunter demonstrators were there in large numbers outside the park, spitting on hunters vehicles as they were going into the park and trying to block the gate. Several got arrested. The PSP had their mounted patrol their trying to hold the idiots back. Back in the old days the PsP would have ridden over them, that is where the term hoofty comes from, those under the hooves of the PSP horses. One year they sneaked into the park after the hunting started and spread tar paper nails all over the parking lots, pound of them. A lot of hunters and several PGC and State park vehicles had multiple flat tires on their vehicles.
How did everyone do this year? I participated in the second hunt today in zone 1. Didn't see anything and when I checked out the ranger indicated a very low harvest. They also said week 1 was low too. This was my first time. In the later morning/afternoon they had a bunch of drives going, but really didn't seem to be much going on around zone 1.
Elliot - you can get an application from the park office. this year I think applications were due oct 1 for the drawing, but check with the park for next year.
