Re: Norristown Farm Park

You got the golden ticket. I was drawn in 2008 actually January of 2009, the year before we moved from SEPA. I shot two doe and had three tags. Could have shot a third no problem, but already had a buck and a doe from NYS in the freezer, so couldn't bring myself to shoot a third. It was fun, that's for sure. Good luck, and wait til you see the bucks you have to pass up!!!!!

Re: Norristown Farm Park

What area? I was in area 4 two years ago and felt a little unsafe. I did shoot a doe and had another tag to fill but left when they blew the lunch whistle. Good luck and wear lots of orange!

Re: Norristown Farm Park

Got drawn first year, and never went since I used all tags before the hunt. I am currently working across the street at the new hospital, and the herd is definitely knocked back. I live off TWP. line rd. and would see 30 deer a day years back. Working on the roof piping the air handlers for the past couple months, the most seen at first light was 4. You guys will get deer as they keep em moving all day, but numbers are starting to get in check!

Re: Norristown Farm Park

I've never been drawn for the Farm Park hunt, but I've only applied once or twice. I was hunting at a spot right outside the Farm Park last Monday, I was seeing deer all day long, you should do fine.

I did get drawn for the shoot at Graterford about 20 years ago, before it became a youth hunt...talk about a fish-in-a barrel hunt!!!! The deer I shot that time practically ran me over, LOL.

Good luck fellas!!

Re: Norristown Farm Park

Nicky I live 5 minutes from the park, and hunt in the area, but not near the park. If you have a spot that borders the park, and I know all the property that touches it, you either have a great friend or an excellent piece that you own. I am jealous! Good luck!!

Re: Norristown Farm Park

25ftup- I live in KOP. I have a good friend who has permission, I was just lucky enough to get an invite. One hand washes the other, I've brought him to some of my former hotspots in the past.

To be honest, I'd forgotten all about the Farm Park hunt till I read this thread. I may just take a sick day on the 25th and try talking him into hunting this spot again, I bet once they start pushing the deer over in the park it will be cherry picking time.
