I'm hunting the adams county border, in southern hancock, west central part of the state. I hunt part of bear creek, and also near Tioga. I hope to arrow a P&Y buck this year. I'll be skinning some doe's for sure! I've heard of piatt county producing some big bucks! Good luck!

you guys both sound as though you have some prime areas as well. yea piatt actually got mentioned as a sleeper county last year. even got mentioned in a d&dh article last year on fawn survival due to its large vastness of ag ground. best of luck this year. took today off and its rainin to beat the band . kinda stuck in the house.[:(]

Hey neighbors,  I am in Greene County, I am fortunate enough to hunt a couple farms and I am a member of a sportsman club that I can also hunt. I don't have stands up yet, how about you guys, all set up?
