DCNR Clear Cut Locations

Anyone know the website or a location on the Internet where I can find this information on this. Yea I know he season is over.

I'm new to the bird dog world, I have a 1.5 year old GSP. After this year being very lack luster for Phessies and ducks, I'm looking for birds to train on till spring. Even if this requires carrying a blank gun. This will also provide scouting info for next season.

I know there aren't many grouse areas where I live, but it's time to put down some boot leather and see what's out there (I live in Juniata Co).

Thanks for any/all the help.

Re: DCNR Clear Cut Locations

I read in one of the forums that DCNR had locations of clear cuts and when the cutting occured (which provided an age of the clearcut).

Worst case I could use google earth, but it's really difficult to spot clearcuts in certain parts of the state due to the quality of the aerial imagery.

The more you zoom in the imagery gets grainey

Re: DCNR Clear Cut Locations

Find your local DCNR main office and either call or send them a letter with what your requesting. I have gotten maps from them that tell you where the clear cuts are and when they were cut. I know they sent some to me free of charge.

Re: DCNR Clear Cut Locations

There are just some parts of the state that are poor aerial to begin with much less zooming in.

I just called DCNR and talked to the forester in my area to find clearcuts within the last 5-10 years. Sounds like there is no online info for this data, just have to call and get the info from the forester.

Re: DCNR Clear Cut Locations

Use the DCNR DMAP maps. Cuts are identified for each DMAP area. Not all of the cuts - but a good start.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

I'm watching this thread.



Google Earth followed by boots.

If guns cause crime, mine must be broken.

Re: DCNR Clear Cut Locations

I guess what I ment by he aerial imagery being crappy is that some of it was still vegetated (leaves on the trees) when it was taken. It's extreamly difficult to scout what's on the ground when all you can see is canopy.

Re: DCNR Clear Cut Locations

If you see the canopy you are not looking at clear cut.

Think before you share your thoughts!!!
