Hunting aroung Lake Paupac (Pike County)

What is the deer hunting like around the lake, and Promised Land SP? I would imagine the SP is a sea of orange on the first day. I know Paupac is private property. Any advise would be appreciated.

I have Hunted there for the past 4 yrs, last year 5 of us in camp and none saw a deer. We hunt hard from sun up to sun down we just don't sit in the cabin. The deer are there far and few but you have to work to get them.

Promised Land is in WMU 3D which tied for last place deer harvest last year.

I hunt the Promised Land area a lot. It's been tough the last few years. I hunt all seasons there. It's pretty common to go many days without seeing a deer. At least on the public land. We typically see more coyote tracks than deer tracks. Hunting pressure may be down a bit too. Hopefully the numbers will come back.

To me its not about the killing. I can have all I want where I live. I like the challenge.
Yeah I did notice lots of yote tracks too!

Re: Hunting aroung Lake Paupac (Pike County)

I hunt PromiseLand...and yes, it is not like hunting farm country, but if you put the time in and scout you should be OK. Last five years everyone in our group has at least seen deer...with the camp getting a least one deer per year. Not a sure thing, and we've seen more bear then deer, but it is fun. Walk anymore then 500 yards off a trail and you won't see anyone.

Re: Hunting aroung Lake Paupac (Pike County)

Promise Land area is DMAP'd. Last year harvest result was:

http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/ucmprd2/...cnr_004990.pdf

DMAP#266 6 out of 54 tags

DMAP#267 7 out of 82 tags.

DMAP usually sell out.
