Help From Hunters Of Central PA

Hi everyone,

I posted this question to the General Hunting Forum as well. I rarely post any topics at all to HPA but I do pay close attention throughout the year to what is being talked about. My Father and I are from Lehigh County and haven't hunted in Clearfield County since 2004. We are considering purchasing a camp and making our way back out there in the not so distant future. Just curious to know how the hunting pressure has been in the last decade and have you been successful? This goes for any county situated in the northern or southern portion of central PA as well. Thanks for your time and have a happy holiday.

Re: Help From Hunters Of Central PA

I like the north central tier as far as location goes and must say I'd rather be no place else. I guess that's why we call it God's Country. That being said my postion of 2G is definitely not known for it's success rate. I would say I definitely see less hunters than I do in some of the southern counties but you're talking much bigger woods up there to hunt. I like that there are big mountains, wide open spaces and just about every animal to hunt but I do like the south central portion when it comes to quantity of game sighted. Used to be we would see more bear at our camp while bear in Huntingdon was unheard of. I really see that flip flopping now too. So I guess I could summarize it as follows. If you want a camp on a nice pristine tract of land backed up to a mountainside with a cold mountain stream running by it you could drink out of edged with laurel and hemlock. A place where you won't see too many hunters but will have to walk some serious ground to be successful although it can be done. A place where your nearest neighbor is usually reached by car and the sound of the modern world is nowhere to be found then I say Clearfield is your place. If you want a cabin in some rolling hills mixed with farmland and more oak flats than pine stands and laurel. A place where you can probably see your neighbor and walk there in a minute. A place where you'll see plenty of cars in the gamelands if you don't get there early enough but shouldn't have a problem tagging out on turkey or deer then I say a county like Huntindon is for you.

Re: Help From Hunters Of Central PA

you will get varied opinion.....trust me.

i ran into a guy the 1st Sat he was heading out because he was wet. First words out of his mouth when he walked up to me were..."WHERE'S ALL THE DEER" ! He was obviously disgruntled. I on the other hand had seen a couple,doe and a non legal buck. Although i had a doe tag, i left em' go. I'm satisfied...He wasn't. Two different opinions. That's what your going to run into.
