I go every year, but can only usually hunt 1 or 2 mornings. Great time of year in the big woods.

Atta boy Matt. Shoot me a pm with your address and I'll send you an upgraded one. Or we can meet at the Inn and give you one there. Looks like a real nice bird your son killed. Merry Christmas Brother!!!

Shade,
Don't rush it. It will be here soon enough. The best 2 seasons are left yet - bobcat and flintlock.


Had 30 plus turkeys in the yard today. 8 to 10 gobblers just a gobbling away........

Same here.

Buddy has a camp in Gaines just across the Tioga line. Hunt both Potter and Tioga from there.

Re: potter county spring gobbler

I remember the day when you had to travel to the north central mountains or the Raystown area to even hear many gobblers!!! Today you can hunt them almost in the middle of every city in the state. The last time I hunted them up north was near cross forks, we always had a lot of luck and great times up north, drinking beers from those canning jars at Footes Inn, great days...I remember scratching my head on that last hunt, the third week of May and snow flakes were falling from the sky..amazing days spent there.

Re: potter county spring gobbler

Harvested a 19# gobbler the FIRST Spring season. Stayed at DEERLICK CAMPGROND. Hunted and fished in Potter for few years scored some missed some always had a great time thinking of giving it a try this spring any reccomendaions on accomadations. TOO OLD FOR A TENT NOW, Cottage ,Motel or Cabin GOOD looking at latter part of season when you can stay out all day if need be.
