    No license is required for hunting in the preserve, but a PA hunting license is required for the free range hunts. This can be obtained online or at issuing agents. Please call for questions or assistance.
  • When is the best time to hunt?
    Mid August to September is the optimal time for hunting in the preserve, but hunting can be done in the preserve from mid August to January. Hunting in the free range area follows PA game laws. Rifle season usually begins the first Saturday after Thanksgiving and runs for two weeks. Free Range bow hunts also follow PA game laws and usually runs October through first two weeks of November. The first weeks of November begin the rut in PA.

    2019 was a good year and we had 100% success on free range hunts even for a youngster only 6 years old. Similarly a nine year old went hunting three times with a crossbow and killed three deer including a buck on a free range hunt. Preserve hunts can expect 100 % success rate.
