Default PA Hunters: Ready for Spring?

Okay, who is going after a gobbler this spring? I' m gonna try it for my first time. I' m not sure what county I' m gonna be in, but most likely I will try to go up-state. I might go with my bow.

As our season is coming soon enough, we are booking hunts quite readily so I' ll probably do more guiding than hunting but I will for sure find time for myself.

PA86, good luck to you as you venture forth as a first time turkey hunter. Although a bow is a great challenge, being a novice, you may want to consider the shotgun...lol but nonetheless, you' ll have a great time as soon as the first thunderous gobble makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

My mind is still undecided on whether I will take a gun or a bow out but be sure that I will be out for the spring gobbler season. My initial game plan is to start scouting some public land up in the Poconos around some of the major lakes/" ponds" . I just bought a canoe and want to utilize it to get to some " out of the way" places where I won' t run into other hunters.

I just received two new calls from my wife for Valentine' s Day so, yes, I guess you could say that I am " pumped" ...

We can' t wait! This will be my 2nd year and my daughter' s first year turkey hunting. She got a Mossberg Bantam 500 20g. with a red dot scope for her 12th birthday last month. So we will be using that this year. Opening day will be in Columbia county with the video camera rolling. I am so thrilled that she is excited about hunting! My husband and I will do some hunting together in Clinton county after my daughter goes a few times as well.

Good luck to all of you!

I have not groundhog hunted in years but I do have some fond memories of taking the 22 out on a hot summer day in pursuit of them.
