Does anyone have any knowledge or experince with this outfit? http://www.littlegeneralhuntinglodge.com/

I'm just looking for a reputable place where I can be accomadated for a week as a lone, out-of-state hunter. Perhaps someone might have a suggestion or two regards some other PA outfitter?

it looks interesting, its all public land hunting. you basicly pay to use the lodge and have them show you were to hunt. the price isnt bad. that is about as much as it would cost to rent a hotel a for 6 day do it your self hunt.
if your up a fair chase hunt and dont mind the fact that you may not get a kill it might be a good idea to check this place out.

I may be mistaken but always thought it was illegal to guide for money or other compensation on state owned land in Pa.

I'm thinking theyre trying more for non residents...a place to stay and they show you public hunting spots, kind of like some outfitters from other states do. Its not illegal to accept payment to guide on public land.
Theres a lot of guides that do this in this state and others as well.

25ftup..... theyre hunting the Moshannon SF

I wonder what the lodge looks like as well.

I've hunted the area...seen some big ones but never harvested one.
I think that area is like every other one....the deer are there...just gotta find em, before another hunter does

I hunt that area. The bucks in the photos are an acurate portrayal of what is there. Bucks up there can only get so big, I would say 130" max. The soil is poor and feed is limited.
Sounds like a good deal for those who live far away.

500 for a 3 day hunt with a guide room and meals. I sometimes spend more then that and i own my own camp. Not a bad deal, beats a hotel and diner food all week.

Hey! Thank you very much for the lead. Steffan's operation looks very interesting indeed.

Would it be accurate to say this operation provides a "deer camp" experience for those without a camp to go to?

Sounds like a nice place and a good hunt for the money, but I find the above statement interesting. If he is licensed to sell his services (I'm certain he would need to be licensed, not as a guide, but as an establishment, maybe as a bed & breakfast?) he could not discriminate by disallowing residents of Pa.

to the best of my knowlege,he is licensed bed and breakfast but has right to refuse a so called client if he wants..I run a business and have right to refuse clients, attorneys don't have to take every person that walks thru their door. thats not discrimination..
