Eastern Pa. deer hunters

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?

I was on the turnpike the other day and there were roadkills everywhere from exit 224? all the way to 146. The Carlisle Exit all the way to 146

No man, I was out in Pittsburh visiting HanktheTank.

Went out to drive some deer with them since they had some tags to fill.

You know I woulda stopped in for a brew and some storytellin' if I was down your way.

Re: Eastern Pa. deer hunters

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.

Re: Eastern Pa. deer hunters

Thats the area that is getting that controlled nite shoot.Think they want to kill around 1,500 deer.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: Eastern Pa. deer hunters

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 $$.

Re: Eastern Pa. deer hunters

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.
