WMU 2G Sinnemahoning area

I have a good friend who has a camp there, my wife and i go there sometimes to look for elk and like it alot. Elk state forest is walking distance. I told him he was nuts for not hunting up there, but he always told me there were too many camps. Well this year he decided to go and he was shocked, almost all the camps were empty and he walked all around and only saw one other hunter and very few shots. So he's gonna go every year and naturally I'm invited. Just wanna know if this is the norm for that area, i never wanted to hunt upstate because i can see wall to wall orange down here just fine. Not concerned with the lack of deer up there, tho there certainly wasnt a shortage when we were up in october, saw alot more deer there than around here. I'm more concerned with hunting a big open area. Think its worth going? Would love to deer hunt up north just once in my life

It is the norm lately because there are very FEW deer left in 2G. No more 30 deer a day sightings. Hopefully it will get back to normal.

Re: WMU 2G Sinnemahoning area

Certain areas seem to hold good populations of deer there. I have hunted the last 12 years out of Sinnamahoning and very rarely do I ever see a hunter and the ones you do see are usually not deep in the woods. I got a doe on Monday and it took me 3 1/2 hours to get it to my truck and that was with some help. So if you don't have one get a good GPS and have at it, lots of area up there.

Re: WMU 2G Sinnemahoning area

Being the area I hunt in 2G is not DMAP property
I can only hunt Antlered the first week. Since they put this into effect I have seen the amount of hunters reduced during the first week of season.
This could be 1 reason for not seeing a lot of hunters.
Good luck - given the opportunity - go for it.
A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work!

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog!
If it's locked up and put away - Your NOT safe!

Bigedg part of the problem of hunting is people just don't know the regulations.

Re: WMU 2G Sinnemahoning area

To tell the truth I see alot more deer there than here in 5C. Seeing a deer in the woods here is almost an event, there groups of deer walked right into his yard at night. So I'm not worried about the very low deer populations I deal with that at home here, I just dont want to see the orange army.

Re: WMU 2G Sinnemahoning area

Those deer in the yard can get frustating sometimes. I have counted up to 16 in our back yard on more than one occassion this year but you usually don't see that in the woods. I felt like I was hunting by myself this archery season I hunted a total of 8 days and never saw a single hunter. There are lots of road hunters but trust me if you get a mile or more off the road you don't usually see many in the orange army.
