Hello all. With rifle season over and getting ready for flintlock season, I am looking for advice. My son and I have doe tags for 2g. We got them so we could hunt close to home without driving 1.5 hours to our cabin. We have been hunting the back road to Beech Creek during archery and rifle and not seeing anything. Would anyone wanna give advice of places to try during flintlock season. Prefer lock haven, Clinton County area, but really anywhere on 2g, to maybe fill one of these tags. Thanks all.

Re: 2g

Try a dmap area or deer damage area. Most other areas have been hunted hard. Most adult does are bred by this time, so any doe shot now could result in 3 deer down. Not trying to be a wet blanket here just a realist. Do you know any farmers up that way? That's where I would concentrate my efforts if I had to fill a tag. Good luck.

Re: 2g

We were relegated to the tail end of the deer seasons 35+ years ago, and I don't think our flintlock kills over that time have adversely impacted Pennsylvania's deer herd. Any deer taken after Christmas with a flintlock is a trophy. Good luck to each and every one of you who participate in North America's ONLY flintlock season.

Re: 2g

Pretty sure flintlock hunters have little to no overall impact on the deer population.

There is no "X" in my bow!!
