    Don't Buy from Dicks

    I have stopped shopping there some time ago. I would rather give my money to more local stores that actually care about our 2nd amendment right.

    Northern Region Meeting a Success

    Glad we attended, great to be around people that love the sport and we all share the same interests. There are definitely a lot more bowhunters in the Northern part, we need to all come together and make sure nothing gets in the way of our passion!

    PA's Future Deer Hunting

    We have property in Monroe County, the hunting was always great until they started releasing doe permits a while back. That destroyed the population. It wasn't until they held off on the doe shooting until the 2nd week is when the herds started to come back. it was really brutal there for a long period time, a lot of guys stopped hunting.
  8. I could remember as kid go hunting, driving down 80 west early in the morning or at evening and counting deer in the fields as we drove past. This past Saturday we had our last pheasant hunt and had my son in the car and took that same drive. We did not see a single deer for the whole drive, that is just not right. We also hunt private land in PA, surrounded by state land. About 12 years ago they started selling doe permits, within 3-4 years the deer population was destroyed. All the hunters took a stand and for the past 3-4 years they only allow doe shooting during the 2nd week of rifle season. That made a huge impact and brought back the deer population.
  9. Based on everyones comments it sounds like we are all on the same page. We need to politely voice this to Fish & Game and do what it takes to get these regulations changed to save our future. If not changed we need to band together and shoot only what we need to keep the deer herd healthy and thriving for many years to come.
  10. Our group has been hunting for over 50 years, mostly zone 5 & 6, but also zone 7 & 9. Since they introduced the unlimited doe harvest (well now it's 9) we have all seen a major decline in our deer herds. The past few years have been really bad. We hunt private and public land, I've seen public land hit the hardest with almost no deer sign at all for miles. We now have a few youths that are starting to hunt and we are deeply concerned about the future of hunting. I also have confirmation that non-residents are coming here and taking all the doe they want. Pretty soon there will be nothing left. Zone 3 is managed very well, you can take a few doe and a few buck for the season. As hunters, we need to come together and secure our future for the sport we love. I am very curios to see how everyone else feels about this situation?
