While traveling back from Philly to western Pa.....I saw dozens of deer along the Pa turnpike(near Valley Forge rest stop). The deer population in this area seems to be really healthy....anybody doin any flintlock hunting in this area?
as for the original question, we are a little south west of Philly and will continue to hunt as long as the weather permits. we don't use flintlocks, but will have our slug guns out. there's still plenty of deer around, if that's what your asking. if you can find a spot around VF park, you should be golden. that place is over run with deer, as well as most places down this way.
there are always tons of deer across from the turn pike rest stop at valley Forge. All private land or national park. No hunting...so the park service brings in "sharp shooters". Another waste of tax payer $$.
That shoot has been cancelled indefinitely thanke to the peta folks. Let me point out that the deer are so thick there they are severlyu malnourished and have destoyed much of the plant life in the park. being very familiar with the National park i can tell you the only way to effectively and safely hunt them is bow or crossbow.
