tionesta area

was wondering if anybody could tell me how the hunting has been in the tionesta area. I hunted for many years in the bottoms down above Nebraska bridge. But my uncle sold his house up there and havn t hunted in the past 5 or 6 yrs in that area. I am thinking of buying a camp up there as I miss the area and the fun of going to camp. I also have a son who is into hunting and I would like him to experince the big woods . Thanks in advance and be safe

Re: tionesta area

HH -- My family has a camp near Marienville. My father and myself have since moved out of state, but travel back every October/November to archery hunt for two weeks. Friends and family also gun hunt there every year.

The hunting pressure is WAY down. We hunt more farm land than big woods and have shot a couple great PA bucks (one 140 class, one 130 class, multiple 110s) and have seen many more that would fit in those same classes. To me (I'm 31), the hunting is better than it's ever been. To my dad and his friends, they're obviously seeing less deer (back in the 70s when it was apparently nothing to see 100 deer a day), but much higher quality deer. Back then, it made news when someone shot a 14-inch, eight point.

We both wish we could spend more time up there for the hunting and just to enjoy nature. So, long answer to your question, I would absolutely recommend it. Tionesta is where I learned to hunt and shot my first buck, so it will always be special to me.

Oh, and the reports from our friends during first day of gun this year (when it usually sounds like a war zone): Very few gun shots heard in each of their respective areas

Re: tionesta area

thanks for the update as you said I also shot my lst buck in those woods and will always be a special place. Friend of mine has a camp over marienville and did very well this year they got 2 bucks opening day and one on tuesday. They had 8 guys hunting and he said he saw more deer opening day than he has seen the last 3 years combined.
