Just got back from camp. Wow!!

i went up camp this weekend in warren co with my wife, dog, dad, his girl and his dog. It was just a work weekend/ get away. Weather was pretty nice but the bugs were horrible.when we first got to camp as soon as we pulled into our road there was a decent 6 point eating out of a apple tree which was cool to see. Last night we headed out to do a little deer sporting in the fields which years past have been pretty crappy. The first field we hit had about 20 deer in it which one was a a real nice buck. Been years since I seen a group of deer in that field. Usually like 2 or three. We hit a few more spots up after that and they all had decent amounts of deer in them. Also on the way home I saw a big group of turkeys on the side of the road which I can't honestly say the last time I saw a turkey up there. I think the declining hunters in our area have finally started to help the situation. It's starting to come around up there which is nice to see after a few tough years of hunting.

Re: Just got back from camp. Wow!!

My father in law has been saying the same for that area. Like I tell him, don't preach too much as some gov't offices want less deer and love to hear your words.
Just my 2 cents
Glad you had a great trip!

Re: Just got back from camp. Wow!!

I saw those deer in the big field at the farm house on friday night too. There were a few buck in the group and they were sparring pretty good. One nice buck. My wife calls that field "deer heaven" lol. W tend to keep a fire going all day when we're up there due to the bugs. without it your constantly swatting at your head.

I was in northern Warren County about a week ago. The bugs were terrible.

“did you get all that on camera sport?”

Yeah wash I was in a red pick up and I saw someone spotting on minister rd on the way up Friday night. We spotted sat night and it looked pretty nice in those fields. I'm happy to see some good deer numbers to say the least.

The bugs have been terrible the last 10 days in the Tionesta area. We kept the Thermacell burning constantly while outside. Anytime we walked out range, it was like attack mode with swarms to the face. September always seems to be a bad month for bugs. Last year I seen a road crew near Marienville wearing headnets.

Re: Just got back from camp. Wow!!

The knats are horrible this year. I read a PGC press release about the die off of large portions of bat colonies. I swear that is directly affecting the volume of knats/bugs. I've had more in my eyes this year than I can remember in 10+ years. It's so bad I just ordered a Thermacell appliance for archery!

Spent the last 2 days at camp near Kellettville. The bugs were terrible. We kept the Thermacell on the whole time and a fire smoldering in the fire pit, but as soon as you took a walk out of range, they were in attack mode.
