Tuscarora state forest (laurel run rd) perry co.

Just wanted to c if anyone here hunts off this road. I used to hunt up there every year but the deer disappeared. I would hunt nine miles back the road by the shape pits. Would love to here some recent stories from there.

I hunt that area sometimes and I think the deer numbers a still low. Alot more bear n yotes then there use to be. Other Hunter sitings are lower now too.

I have a friend who has a cabin on Laurel Run rd before the shale pits. He killed a buck (small 7) the first week of archery and another friend killed a buck with a crossbow in the same area. I don't know if they see numbers of deer but they do see bear alot.

Without seeing it, I'd ask one question. How's the timbering on that forest? It's not unusual for forests not timbered in awhile, or rarely so, to have a small herd of deer. Isn't always due to hunters.

Haven't been there for awhile and have no intentions on going back.It's always had heavy pressure with easy access.Last time I was there a few years back there were a couple of new clearcuts.

Re: Tuscarora state forest (laurel run rd) perry co.

I have hunted turkeys near there but not deer. I have a friend that is in there a lot in turkey and archey season. I don't think he has seen many deer in that area lately. If you get a good map you'll see you can travel for miles and miles from Laurel Run (Chick's Bar) up and over towards Fowlers Hollow or even towards Shippensburg. There are literally miles of state land and I know there are some deer there. You could talk to some of the Forestry guys for additional info.

Every year I hunt that area several days, and have not seen a deer in that part of Tuscorara Forest for at least 3 years. I really like the Meadows road, but it has been closed this fall with a bridge out.

Tim, I am familiar with the area you are inquiring about, but never hunted there. My brother however, has hunted deer off Laurel Run road, and he will tell you that the deer are few and far between. Beautiful area though, one of my favorites in the state!
