:D Perfect morning in the PA mountians!
PAridgerunner, Eric, Judd, & I met at 6am for the opening day of early muzzleloader season (doe only) in the state forest near my house. We had an awesome sunrise and saw quite a few deer over the course of the morning. The new Omega connected with a 60 yd shot to fill my tag. On the 1.6 mile drag back to the truck I spotted a bear and picked up Eric's excited voice proclaiming a turkey bonaza over the radio.( Rices' sure go gaga for turkeys :lol: )

Someone did miss but I'm not mentioning names ;) ....and there wasn't a rain cloud in sight all morning. Now off to the apple butter cook so Mule Deer & Fatty can rest easy. Too Much Fun !!!!

Congratulations on the deer. That always makes if nice when a group of friends can have fun like that...

Congrats Phil. :hmm: I've always wondered how long it takes before you can breathe again after one of those smoke belchers goes off. :) Who missed?

hey guys, I've only been to the Tiadaughton a few times turkey hunting in the spring. I was wondering if you could leak some info about a spot Ive turkey hunted. down by the look out. on the left theres a valley and in the valley, in the down hill side is a crick, on the other side of the lookout it works downhill to the river. this is the area I've seen good turkeys in in the spring. they seem to like the east facing hills to warm up early on those crisp spring mornings y'all have up there. Have either of you hunted deer in that section? In spring I blew a chance on a gobbler in the gulley (left side of parking spot) and when I sat down half way up the mountain back to the look out, I nearly sat in some bear scat. I'd also seen some deer pellets too. Is this a good spot come deer season? I might feel like coming up sometime in the next year or two to have a corinary hiking them hills. Thought deer season would be nice. lol :fudd: heres the gps coordinates for it or atleast its one of the spots I was at up there. Its the only one from up north.

Scott,
We hunt the state forest DMAP area 901 just south of Williamsport. This covers a huge section of the mountians from east of rte 15 to past Jersey Shore, then encompasses quite a section along I-80. I think you're hunting a bit north of us. (ps...we don't give out gps coordinates since a forum like this could result in a passel of lead slingers showing up...but we'd be happy to have ya along anytime! :thumbsup: )

Phil,

I went to college over in Mansfield and did a ton of camping in tiadaughton. When I was young my Dad took me up there or I should say down in there to fish the Pine Creek and it was close to heaven as i can think of. It;s the reason I wanted to go to school up there. Used to be an old man lived down i there in the late 60's early sevnties in thay house , he sold worms. Wild camping beautiful scenery and great fishing gets no better.
