How did your camp get started? How was the location chosen? Our camp went up in the early 1950's on Boone Mountain in Clearfield County. Our original 5 members, who we call the Olde Guarde, had hunted that area since right after WWII. They used to stay at Margaret Bundy's farm up on Beers Road. Margaret made a little extra money in the fall by boarding hunters during deer season. Margaret never admitted it, but the guys knew she was feeding them venison. She'd stew apples in her wood burning cook stove and put them out in the back pasture to lure the deer into range for her old rifle. She'd pop one from the back door and then yell up at the guys, "HEY! WHO'S SHOOTING UP THERE!?" One night they heard her shoot and pretty soon she came up the steps and told the guys she had a deer laying out in the middle of the road, and would they go drag it in? Thinking he was dealing with a dead deer, Dad and his buddies went out in their skivvies with nothing more than an hammer. Turns ot the deer was far from dead, and after chasing it across the street, and through the next fence and pasture, they gave up and went home. Many great stories from over the years. I can't wait to get back on the hill for deer season this year. When my granddaughter is old enough to hunt, she will be the first member of the 4th generation of our family to hunt deer out of our camp.
