Re: hunting preserves in PA
I can say, I've hunted most preserves in pa. These places are good if you want a few days away, a good time with the guys, a good place to take a first time hunter, or if you want a head on the wall or meat on the table. They are all about the same. If hunting one of these here, I would suggest bow only. The boar hunts can be challenging if you pinpoint a specific animal. And yes, they can be aggressive as I have been charged many times, and have been brushed by some boar. Your sheep and goat breeds are fairly a farm type shoot, although once again...if you target a specific animal, they can get skittish fast.
The pa preserves are no comparison to ones in Texas. I have also hunted a large preserve in Tennessee quite a few times. The one I've hunted is 2600 acres fenced in. And although fenced, it is far from a canned hunt. This one holds a herd of hundreds of fallow deer that breed on their own, and aren't trucked in on an as needed basis. Same as the boar on the property. One of our hunters saw a specific sika deer the first day that he was determined to get.....5 days later, he never got a shot at it, although he did see it briefly a few times. And that was with a rifle. So I consider places like this one, far from a canned hunt. Feel free to give me a pm if you want any more specific info.
