2B gamelands or state land?

Seems mostly posted land? Is there any larger tracts of land that is owned by a forest company, state, co op, etc? I have been reading up on it and not finding much info.

Thanks!

Not much public land in 2B... Some GL's in Wash. County portion, but your best bet is 2A, 2C. Vast expanses of state forest, and GL 51 in Chalk Hill is large... also Ohiopyle SP, Forbes, etc.... Mucho room to roam with little worry of seeing "Posted" along the way.

The only public land I'm aware of in 2B is SGL 203 in Wexford. Other than that youre going to need to go door to door and acquire permission. There are a few Co-op's in 2B.

Google "Allegheny Land Trust" and check out the "Whetzel Preserve". I don't think this gets hunted much due to how steep it is but its one of the few spots I know of.

Friends don't make promises they can't keep.

Re: 2B gamelands or state land?

Kyle,

Look at the cooperative farms. And if you do hunt the areas, try and find the owners house and give it a knock and if he answers let him know you're hunting and introduce yourself. I don't know if you have to but you should and it's always a nice thing to do for them so they aren't worried bout strange people on their grounds. There's lots of does down there, and not many people take advantage of the cooperative lands.
