    Good bird hunting in southeast PA right? At least that's what I've heard. Some areas with self-producing populations? Been a long time since I was in Philly. You an Eagles fan? Steelers all the way here, but wish the Eagles well any other game.

    Sad to say the Pheasant hunting here has dried up as well. To much urban sprawl. No place to hunt really except for public land. Then you have to deal with the crowds if you can only hunt on Saturdays. I try and get away from this region, I like SGL#205 in Lehigh, big enough to avoid the crowds if your don't mind walking, me and the dog usually stubble across a bird or two that's been pushed way back by the pressure.

     

    I could care less about the Eagles, I'm a Flyers fan and you guys have sid the kid and the cup. I just have another frustrating hockey season to look forward to.

    Hey Bailey Blue, its been a while since I have been on here! I like this new site, it is good to see other PA hunters out there.

    For all other PA hunters that I haven't talked to before, I am in the norhteast corner of the state, Shohola, PA to be exact. The only pheasant hunting up here is on state land which is stocked, with less and less birds every year.

    Hey Dave, was wandering where you'd been.  Saw your new bow's working well. I'm heading to Colorado in a month for an elk hunt and looking forward to lettin' lose a carbon express tipped witha muzzy! how's the deer scouting going?  seeing more deer this year in the fields and road sides it seems.  The ususal spots look as usual in the woods for me here.

    Browning... those Flyers sure gave a good test run for the redwings! I'll be curious to see how the Pens do keeping a solid team together as sid and malkins contracts take their toll on the payroll.

    Bailey,

    Yeah I haven't been on here as much, I got to get back into it. The new bow is shooting great, I am very happy with it. The scouting is going good for me this year, I have seen a lot of deer, not to many good bucks though. I am going to go out this weekend and find some big buck highways down by the river. I am excited for the season to be here, only 7 weeks away.
    Good luck in Colorado, I hope you are able to bring home a trophy bull! Are you using a guide? Where abouts in CO are you going?

    Just North of Durango Colorado, in the very Southwest corner of Colorado. We have a guide taking us in to a preset camp on horseback, apparently 3-4 hours ride in, and then they head out and we're on our own. They'll caome back every day or two to check in and pack anything we get out. My tags is an either sex, and for my firts trip out with a bow if a mature cow comes out and gives me a nice shot... well lets just say the steaks will be awfully good. Not that I wouldn't mind a nice bull standing right next to her mind you. I'll keep you posted on how we do.
    My Dad's been seeing a few nice bucks around his place as usual, but they spread out quickly once the apples are done, and the rut nears. Hopefully one or two will stick around!

    That sounds like it is going to be an awesome hunting trip. Good luck out there! If you don't mind me asking, how much does a hunt like that cost?
    I haven't been able to do as much pre-season scouting as I would like but I think I have found a couple good spots, as long as all the other hunters out here don't screw them up for me. Only about 6.5 weeks away from the start of the bow season, I gotta get those stand hung this week.

    The wrangler/camp fee is 1100.00 per eprson. The tag runs 525. We should be able to do this for under 2000.00 each, not counting food, since we'd eat no matter where we are.
    I hear you about other hunters. It's amazing how those dreams of the nice buck your waiting for vanish when someone parks a 4 wheeler 100 yards from your stand, walks twenty ffet from it and proceeds to kick all the brush away to clear for a seat on the first day! All the while you've been there 30 minutes already and have run your flashlight batteries down trying to signal them your there!

    That isn't bad for a trip out to CO! Is it for a full week of hunting? Have you ever done this trip before, if so how successful were you? When I was stationed out in Washington these last 4 years, I tried elk hunting and I only saw elk one time, not a good experience.

    That is why this year I am going to try to stay on private land as much as possible. The problem is, I know that there are some big bucks on the public land that are worth going after. We'll see what happens.

    I've never been out there, and never hunted elk. One of the guys has gone out there for the last 15 years or so and has hunted the general area. He has always seen lots and had many chances, but would only shoot a mature bull because he didn't want to pack anything less out. Now with horses at our disposal, anything legal will do for me. I was in the Canadian rockies before, but never the Americans so a trip hiking around them will still be awesome. The outfitter says there is a good heard where we're going. They said they cut a new camp in 2 hours further than their previous and there is alot of sign including some wallows. We're very optimistic at least one of us will score and that the rest will at leats have oppurtunities.

    Bailey,
    Well it sounds like it is going to be an awesome trip no matter what. I hope that you get one, maybe even The Big One. Best of luck to you.
