I'm from St. Mary's PA. I was back there last summer and the elk were everywhere. I'd like to hear from anyone's experiences on the hunt,or their opinions.
Some of the locals say that hunting them would be like shooting livestock because they're so tame. When I was there they were easily approachable.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
