unit 61

Hello, I also have waited as a resident for 15 yrs to hunt area 2 again. I will be 57 this yr. and just can't wait anymore. I checked my pref. points to see none left, so I figure I drew area 61. My question is which part of 61 is better, the NW or SE? I have some friends that live in the area and one says one thing and the other likes the oppisite. I have never been to the area before and do plan a scout trip twice this summer, any help would be great. Big smile

NW or SE ?

outdoorlover2,

Congrats on drawing the tag ! Thumbs up Both ends can be good, but the question is, what terrain you prefer hunting and there tends to be more people on the NW end. I would be having my buddies doing some serious scouting and then where ever they find the "ONE" that would be where you hunt.

You guys need to realize though that even if you find that "ONE" you better have some good back up plans. One of the best bulls I found last summer ended up crossing the road during archery season and was taken by a PA guy. Heres that bull.......

Good luck with your hunts !

LOL, I can relate Elkkill,

LOL, I can relate Elkkill, I've done it myself! Push, Push, to get a shot and wind up pushing the bull into another hunter. It seems like they were always older guys though. Infact one time it was a small heard with a couple legals in it and a group of hunters took the two largest. I was younger and full of it back then.......so I guess now that I'm fifty...I get to have the "one" pushed to ME!  HA! that will be a cold day in H_ _ L! lol

Ya RPETER, I'll be watching for you. Thumbs up
