Went out about 11:30 this morning due some erands I had to run prior. Went out to SGL 43. Stayed until about 4:45 this evening. All I saw was a rabbit, a woodpecker, a bluejay, a turkey ( hen) about 30 yds away. Heard a couple turkeys "talking to each other", and a few distant muzzleloader shots.

But NEVER saw a single deer. May have to find a new location for rifle season.

Hunted Thursday and Friday in Wayne County with my buddy and a friend from Boston who carried a CF rifle as a senior hunter. We carried flintlocks and tried to move deer for the senior hunter. Tough hunting, noisy leaves and poor visibility due to all the beech brush leaves. We saw a total of four deer of which only one would have offered a shot, a small buck that passed about 40 yards in front of me. Could not get our friend from Boston a shot no how but that's the way it often works and is a part of hunting. Lots of turkeys in Wayne also.

I did shoot a nice doe here in Union County last week with my 54 cal Southern Mtn. rifle.

Jack, it is a great deal more difficult to hit a little bitty tree than a big, ole fat doe! You are to be commended. It's resource first anyway, you'll remember!


Our group; grandson, son, and self, hunted Monday and Tuesday in 2G around and among the snow damaged and downed trees and limbs of Tioga State Forest. My grandson had his first shot with a flintlock, but missed. It didn't affect his enthusiasm one bit, and a little lesson from grandpa on limiting the quantity of priming powder should help after Christmas. My son passed on a shot at a yearling, and I took my smokepole for pleasant, leisurely walks in the woods. I saw more bears than deer.
But, I would't have missed a moment of the whole experience!
