areas a rifle is allowed in 5c?

I've heard guys talk about areas in 5c where rifle is allowed. everything I've read says that is not the case but I thought maybe I might be overlooking something. if anyone knows about these areas and of any gamelands in that area I would greatly appreciate any info. like I said I read the book so please no smart remarks about reading my handbook, i'm not an idiot.thanks

do you know any gameland numbers there? is blue marsh part of that area? any area open to public hunting would be a help as well.

Much of French Creek State Park is in Berks and huntable. Lake Ontelaunee is another place. Blue Marsh is 5b. SGL 52 is probably the closest to you. It is near Maple Grove raceway off of Rt 10. Plenty of thick cover, deer and hunters there.

Portions of Lehigh and Northampton counties also lie in 5c and are open to rifle hunting.

The PGC really needs to drop allowing centerfire rifles in the late season. It's not needed and a lot of bucks are taken then.

I see very, very few hunters out in the late rifle season. Some, but very few.

Re: areas a rifle is allowed in 5c?

You CANNOT use a rifle in all of Berks. You can use it in the portions of Berks that are in WMU 5C, which is more or less about half the county. You can use a rifle in all of the areas of Berks that are in 5C, yes. Unless there was a reg change, PA-61 is roughly the western boundary on 5C, until you get up to I-78, and then it jogs around a little bit. Flintlock/late archery season also runs later in 5C now, too, but again, only in 5C, not the entire county of Berks.
