Frank Dickman's  Field Journal
Bio:
Hello Folks. My name is Frank and I live in East Central Pennsylvania….Lehigh County to be more exact. I grew up less than 20 minutes from where I currently reside and have been hunting the immediate area for the past 22 years. My passion is bowhunting though I also participate in the state’s rifle, small game and migratory bird seasons. I work part time at one of the local archery pro shops in addition to being employed full time for one of the local school districts. I primarily hunt heavily pressured public land within about 10 minutes of my home. There are two gamelands in Lehigh County, SGL 205 and 217. Both are reasonably accessible and provide a relatively fair amount of game animals to hunt.
