Yes they are PA bucks and the antler restrictions are the best thing that has ever happened here! This is the 10th year for AL's now and i must say its unbelievable what 10 years of change can do. Heck it was amazing after 5 years.

Also i am cool with that name and whoever wants to be captian.

I agree that AR has made a big difference here in PA.
We have some very nice dder, they are not that common on the state ground in my area but private lands are holding some real nice bucks. It is still tough to see many P&Y in my area any where.

What county are you in? Im in Beaver county. Beaver and Allegheny county have some good p&y bucks. You just have to have some patients and do a little home work. I also hunt in the Allegheny national forest in forest county. That is harder hunting but when i was a kid it was hard to see anything bigger than a 4pt. Now i see some awesome deer there. People complain about doe killing and there being no deer left. Believe me when i say that's not true. Yeah we no longer have these huge herds of 70+ doe and very few 1.5 yr old bucks running around everywhere like back in the day but try explaining to an old timer up there who doesn't understand how UNHEALTHY AND UNBALANCED that was. These guys don't understand how big those woods are and you actually have to do some pre season scouting now and have to go deeper in the woods than just 50 yards behind camp. Last year we had a Buck around my place well into the 180's and he actually made it through the season. Only time i ever had him close enough for a shot was during bear season. Go figure lol.

I am in Franklin county. 40 miles south of Harrisburg. You are on the western side. There has been some true giants that come from that area!
Let me tell you that we have no where near the quality deer that you have out there... Not saying that we do not have some quality deer but they are hard to come by. I have several very good deer on trail cam but nothing huge.

I put in a lot of time in scouting before and after season. I need to find new places but they are hard to come by. I lost ground 4 years ago that held several P&Y whitetails consistantly. I keep looking for quality ground to hunt but so far nothing.

Believe me harvesting does has helped the herd significantly. I am for reducing the herd and believe me i hear the same complaints from allot of people. Most of those guys are 1st day people and walk out and sit by a tree without putting any time in scouting. Not all are that way but more than enough are that way.

Good luck on that 180" buck! One year older and wiser!
