bird hunters in the LEWISBURG area...help me out

Im looking at colleges one of my top 2 choices is Bucknell...but i wnat to know what kind of bird hunting is in the area before i make a decision on where im going (dont want to spend 4 years in an area with no bird hunting). not asking for you own covert locations, just an idea of if there is huntable birds (grouse, woodcock, pheasants) in the area..thanks

Many better opportunities than your other choice

There's hunting and there's hunting with a good dog

Good pheasant hunting right up rt 15 at gamelands #252. Also not far from the Central Susquehanna Wild Pheasant area which should reopen during your 4 year stint. Grouse and woodcock can also be had in the area.

I'm not saying where but I will say that you're within an hour of some of my co-op pheasant hunting hotspots. I'll take those farms to my grave with me but it goes to show you that there are farms in that area that still get birds from the PGC and it has not totally stopped. Thats a good area to hunt other game as well if you just knock on some doors.

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

ch..ch..ch..*click*..BOOM

LOL! Good point there.

In the absence of real birds, pheasants will do.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

After you cut your teeth on grouse and woodcock then you can move up to the king of gamebirds. As you can see, some on here are still working on it

The owner of the Town Tavern in Lewisburg is bird hunter so there must be birds in the area. They also have good food there too.
