Tuscarora State Forest is close by there. Huning is good if you do your homework. Trout fishing is ok to.

Re: Anyone hunt around Ickesburg , Perry County?

We hunt just West of Ickesburg outside of New Germantown and the hunting is pretty decent. Got a few buck up there over the past few years and the guys up this year saw about 5 legal buck opening day but no shots taken. I never had a problem seeing deer up there. The trout fishing is about average. We usually fish Sherman's creek and it's your typical stocked trout stream although it's nice that the Blain sportsmans club stocks it as well. In fact, I'll be leaving tomorrow to hunt up there this weekend. We've been starting to see a lot more bear in the area as well. All deer have been taken out of Tuscarora but the gamelands within driving distance also hold rabbits, get stocked with pheasants and are great for turkeys as well. If I was looking for a camp it would definitely be in the Blain, East Waterford, Shade Gap area

I hunt Tuscarora SF near Kistler, which is a few miles from Ickesburg. There are deer there but you gotta work to get to them. Turkeys everywhere this year. Trout fishing is pretty good, Bixler Run is a good one, as well as Shermans creek and a few others over near blain.
