Taking mine in this morning as soon as they open. It might beat that top bear!
I was just too worn out to get it down there last night I will share the details in a separate post soon.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Was the recent snowstorm a big factor in the decreased day one harvest in the Northern Tier counties? My home county, Huntingdon, is currently leading the statewide harvest which is very uncharacteristic. I'm sure the traditional leading counties will catch back up and assume their typical spots atop the harvest lead as the season unfolds, but was just wondering why they had a lower harvest so far.

Yeah a little snow is great for bear, you get 12+" dumped and they hunker down for a few days. I have been keeping an eye on 5 of them using a corn field. The first snow we got the sow with Cubs quit showing up but 2 board were still regular. No tracks or pics since the deep snow. Looking like mid 40's for the first week of deer. I fully expect a good amount of bear to be harvested that week.
