Hunting and trapping opportunities exist in abundance on public and private lands throughout Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, many sportsmen and sportswomen do not take advantage of these areas. Through the years, hunters and trappers continuously return to familiar locations, never considering the possibilities that lie “around the corner.” Other hunters and trappers are unaware of the opportunities that exist nearby and across the state.
In addition to the excitement of hunting new fields or trapping forgotten areas, hunters and trappers can enhance their time afield by hunting different game species, trying more challenging methods, or using traditional equipment.
Opportunities to apply hunting skills also exist before and after hunting season.
Trap and skeet shooting, sporting clay courses, and 3-D archery courses are other activities that enhance hunting involvement.
