new hunter to the area looking for places

Hello all,

New hunter to the southwest region of PA "2B, 2C and 2A" are the areas I live within. I am looking for some guidance on some place to hunt small game this weekend and not quite sure where to go. I don't kno many people that have farms sooo I am just looking for some good public hunting areas.

Thanks

Also consider Raccoon Creek State Park and Hillman State Park

Re: new hunter to the area looking for places

dont hunt small game much but raccoon state park and the game lands in Beaver/washington counties have been good in past years. worth a shot.

also, cant tell you how many farms I've gained permission to hunt just by stopping, being respectful, and asking permission.

Try Cross Creek Park in Avella ...
Great spots for just about anything in that park...
