Where to hunt?

Due to some last minute issues, my buddy and I are scrambling as to where to hunt opening day. We live near Doylestown in 5C so we were hoping to hunt an area where rifle was permitted.

Can anyone recommend a State Gamelands within a 3 hour drive. Ideally not too busy but I realize beggars can't be choosers at this late hour.

Hit the southern end of SGL 13. Puts you right at 2.5 to 3 hours from Doylestown and you can also shoot a bear if ya get the tag. Plenty of room and some nice deer.

Camp life,it don't get much better!

Re: Where to hunt?

I cannot reccomend a specific gameland, but depending upon what type of topography you like to hunt you have choices within 3 hours. Monroe and Pike have rolling to flat ground with swamps, If you like Mountains go to Sullivan or Lycoming County. Remember the harder the access the area hunt = less hunters. Get yourself a good simple GPS and a deer cart and hike in to get away from the crowds.
The Pa Game Commission has links to State Game land maps
Good Luck......
