I live on stone creek ridge in Huntingdon Pa. At the house on private ground there are nice bucks and deer in the yard. We don't hunt there.
We go to the state game lands on stone creek ridge and hunt Greenle mt. by Whipple dam.
After two weeks of hunting our total was. I saw one doe, my brother saw NOTHING. His son saw 4 doe.
Now let me explain. I do the walking they sit by the thickets, hollow bottoms or what ever Im walking around. I've killed deer every year walking like that for about 25 years. Till about 4 years go.
I would like to say, the Game C. has to be made up of the most stupid people ever to sit behind a desk.
1. Two weeks to kill doe till this year has destroyed the herd.
2. Those big bucks they promised were shot as button bucks.
3. The bucks that had time to grow are now shot.
What does that leave? Just what I saw, very little sign and very few deer.
You have open house on the state gamelands and they see no problem with their managment plan. We need to get rid of those idiots and please hunters. STOP SHOOTING DOE ON STATE GAMELANDS.
How did the rest of you make out? Is it just our area or are the other gamelands empty too?

I think the game commission should be sued for selling deer liscenses, like false advertisment. There are dang few deer. I saw what you saw. Empty trails, no deer shit,(they have to let that behind) and very few beds. That was in places years past that used to have a lot of deer. S.G. Lands are now a good place to take long naps. I covered a LOT of ground this year, miles by gps and they ain't there HOMER.

I have to agree with both of you.Now that I am doing the unemployment shuffle I had more time than ever to hunt I done lots of walking and sitting in search of deer after hunting over 80 hours hunting state gamelands and seeing 5 deer that I could not take. I have made my mind up that now might be the time to do like alot of my friends have done and give up hunting. Game commission are running the game lands just like the ceo's are running companys and you see how thats working for the economy

You guys are. Youre supposed to shoot them over bait or at night under a spotlight.
