    Default Boating/Hunting in Central PA

    Monday started our 2 week rifle season for deer in central PA. Here are a couple shots of how we hunt/boat the end of November, beginning of December. Lot's of fun!

    Musta been using bucktail jigs. Or was that doetail jigs? Nice one, aspeck.
    Sent using a tin can and a piece of string. A technological breakthrough. The tin can is a 1966 Starcraft Nassau powered by a 1966 Merc 500.

    Won't he do a little better if you keep him in a live well?

    Good times Art. Nice lookin' deer too. We don't typically get them that big down here.

    Someone needs to nudge that one guy. He's looking at the inside of his eyelids instead of looking for deer! I must say, that's a first for me, Art. Given the terrain, I can see how it would be very productive.......Mmmmmmmm, backstraps.............

    The guy looking at his eyelids is 82 and in the past year and a half has gone through a hip transplant, a knee replacement, chemo, and now they need to start working on his other knee and hip. And we can't keep him ON the boat! He keeps trying to get into the middle of the drives and doesn't want to be a burden to us! Shucks, he can do whatever he wants because he makes us all sandwiches and brings the candy and snack cakes! LOL! He is a tough old Air Force Pilot and a great friend and hunting companion!

    Gotta finish up a few office things and head back out this afternoon ... hopefully!

Then probably done hunting till Saturday. Geese come in next Monday and muzzleloader (flintlock) after Christmas. Lot's of good boating weather ahead yet! LOL!

    Pardon my ignorance... your shooting them at the shore from the boat, or boating to a remote location and hunting them from land? Never though of doing either actually. I'm not sure if we could shoot from a boat here in Ohio.... I didn't get any this last gun season, one more weekend coming up, if I don't bag one I'll have to get out with the bow and tree stand.

    Yes to both questions. We boat to locations and sometimes watch, but mostly drive. In the process of going from place to place we see deer along the water, bring the boat to a complete stop, turn off motor, load ... legal to shoot from the boat as long as it is not under ANY mechanical power and the motor is turned off.

    Looks like good times Art. On this end of the state in WMU 5C it has been an up and down year for me. Took the first week of Nov to archery hunt the rut. Shot a doe first morning and saw lots of buck and doe the rest of the week but no more of them fell to my arrow. First day of shotgun I saw a doe with what appeared to be a broken arrow in her neck, so I did the humane thing and dropped her. Turned out to be an antenna and transmitter. Bummer!

    That's interesting! Was there an address to return the transmitter?

    Yes it was placed on the deer by Penn State University students. I called the number and had a nice conversation with one of the kids doing the study. The main thing they are looking at is deer movement in the area. Personally I think the game commission needs to look at mortality rates in 5C and the other special regs areas, but thats neither here nor there. The kid was real nice and told me they would be by my place to pick up the collar. I told him they should try to put just a little bit of color on those things so a hunter can identify what it is at a distance. Had I known that deer was healthy I would never had shot her.

    Just an added note ... last day of rifle season the Colonel bagged a doe. He is 82 with 2 replaced hips, and in need of knee replacements, but they would not do it because of his cancer. Yesterday he got word the cancer has not grown any, and might actually be shrinking. Next step, 2 new knees so he can be at full strength for hunting season next year! Sure will miss him when he can't join us any more. Don't want to see that day come.

    aspeck, those are great posts you supplied for everybody to read. I'm originally from PA and ended up in GA. But it has been a long time since I hunted for anything now. I do like to fish and hunt, but it is getting harder to find land to hunt safely on anymore. However, I'm so glad you still want to hunt with the elderly and post such stories as well. Those special times will stay with you forever...
