Dream camp Roy! Did you mention what part of Penn? To say I’m jealous would be an understatement!......

Roy, please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe they hunt bears using big drives in PA. The Poconos have a lot of ridiculously thick rhodedendrons, and I think they push through making noise, banging pots and pans, etc, to get the bears up and moving out of the thick shit. Is this what your family does, or do they do something different?

Is that what your grandfather did??? Knowing me you think I would partake in that crap??? LMAO!! I know as in Ma. they (other big groups) do drives as well.
See Post #15. Usually 2-3 hunters mostly hunting at that cabin. Still hunting and stalking is what they and I will do alone. I will be be "deer hunting" at the same time.
Big dark creepy Swamps will be my preference. When there I will speak to the spirits and send them to the one they call "Stands on Logging Roads." LOL!!!!

No, my grandfather was not a bear hunter, and unfortunately for me, by the time I was old enough to hunt his best years of hunting were way behind him. I wasn't insulting you or your family Roy, I was explaining to you legitimately that is how bear hunting is done in most parts of PA. It is a tradition like hunting with dogs in e south, or hunting over doughnuts in Maine.

Hey Roy, here is something for you to think about while you are tramping through the woods do some preseason Pennsylvania scouting...

All the years I hunted in Idaho I saw plenty of rattlers. You usually hear them far off first.They don't bother me any.
What I Hope to see and hear is an elk at least. Nothing sweeter to hear in nature but a bugling elk first hand! Hearing it on TV does not compare.
