4/2/12 Redtag Hunt Opportunity

Any takers on a redtag hunt opportunity. It will be this Monday in southern Chester county. I will be leaving from the Pottstown area if you want to join or meet along the way. Hunting is done from safe, secure tree stands. There are hang on's and ladder stands (one 2 man stand so let the kid bag a day of school) harness required. Great opportunity to harvest (was out with 2 HPA members this past Monday and all 3 of us saw deer. Yes, they are pretty far along now so just go for the fawn doe that are there (they are really healthy looking now). Give a PM if interested.

I'm not in favor of having red tag this late in the season,especially when does will be starting to drop their fawns.

I don't think I could be the trigger man on that, BUT it is a needed solution. There are alot of jobs a farmer does I don't think i could do either, but I am glad they do them.

Matty, nice of you to come to HPA to find folks to go with you on the Red tag hunt, that is what this thread ia about. Stay safe and enjoy the good company!!

Thanks RB, I will and its always good company, the only other hunters I take are from HPA. Not to get into a debate over redtag hunting but I enjoy getting to hunt Feb-Sept with whatever weapon that I choose (except rifle), keeps the freezer stocked and provides a great opportunity to get together with other like minded people.

That is the point, reduce the deer population before the crops are up.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

True. But could result in a rough awakening when that slice is made.

Re: 4/2/12 Redtag Hunt Opportunity

If a hunter doesn't know that a doe will have pretty big fawns inside her this time of the year, it will educate them. Since only doe are open in the Red tag period there is a good change most deer they shoot will have fawns in them.

Yep. And honestly, in my younger days, I wouldn't have expected it as I wasn't in tune with gestation periods, etc... just never paid it any mind.
