Anyone hunting Pennsylvania 1A?
Got a 1A doe tag this year. Going to try out some of the public land.

Anyone hunting 1A?

Got my 2E tag as well and will hunt it on the Saturdays. But will spend a few days in the 2nd week in 1A

Good luck Jake. Didn't you get one for the little lady this year?

She's in nursing school and has a busy schedule this fall.

She hasn't decided if she'll hunt or not. If she does I'll get her a license and then I know a farmer that usually has some left over dmap tags up until gun season. So if she decides to hunt I'll try to get her one of those.

I spoiled her last year by taking her out for early muzzle loader season and she decided she likes that October, nice weather hunting. Since I'm going to Wyoming this fall I probably won't hunt the early muzzleloader season this year

Actually Ohio controlled hunt draw was this morning.

I didn't draw anything but my wife did. She drew a special slug only hunt on Saturday November 9th.

She'll be allowed a buck and a doe or two doe. And I can also take two doe.

So I'm guessing she won't bother going to PA at all this year as she *should* be able to get a deer at the controlled hunt.

I'll shoot after she gets hers, or at whatever she misses lol...

jake what hunt did your wife get drawn for ? i quit trying to get drawn for those hunts about 3 yrs ago. seemed like every year the same people were being selected. i know for a fact that 1 guy got drawn for 3 different hunts 3 yrs in a row . if i was him i would of gone & played the lottery instead

She drew the Ravenna arsenal women's hunt. Which is much higher draw odds than any of the regular hunts.

I've drawn three times since 2012 for various hunts. So I keep applying. This was the wife's first time getting drawn in three years of applying.

that's a nice place to hunt . have been there 3 times since 1986 & have taken 3 deer out of there . 1 nice buck & 2 doe. the buck was a 140 class deer but can't qualify for ohio big bucks due to being a fenced in area . i remember when ravenna was a archery hunt only & you had to qualify for it. that was back in the late 70's & early 80's & got a really nice buck back then also. also did'nt qualify for ohio big bucks due to being a fenced in area.alot of property to hunt.but you get drawn for for a certain area. good luck to both of you.

I hunted in there once before on an antlerless hunt. There were deer running all over that day. And I had my first one down just a few minutes after legal light at about 15 yards.

nice i think now they have thinned the herd

Bocajnala 08-16-2019 09:44 AM

Yes it's down allot. I drive past the arsenal on my way to and from work everyday.

Used to see 20+ deer each time. Then a few years went by without seeing much. This year I've seen more than any of the past three years. So numbers are up a little more this year it seems like.

I'm excited to go either way!
