Polishing up the ol' Mosin right now for the trip out to my back yard in the morning.

Good luck PA2A rifle deer hunters!

First day report.

Nice and frosty this morning, about 20°F before the sunrise. Lots of gunshots this year in the valley and on the mountains around us after daylight. My cousin got the only deer in our fields and snagged a nice sized buck that would've been an 8 point but had broken tines on one side. Didn't see any other deer though in the valley. We put on a drive here at the house and did a couple more drives on the mountain with no luck. About a half hour before sunset we went over to my brother in laws house and as soon as we get out 5 deer walked across the fields there just far enough away that we couldn't get a shot at them.

Looks like rain for the next couple days, we'll try again later in the week.

Great start!

It's hard to go around here. You have to have a shotgun to hunt in our county (Bucks), plus you should know someone with private land to have a chance of finding anything, and we have neither. Usually my husband would take a week off and go to central PA to hunt but we didn't have the money this year. Anyway, the guys he goes with go to the worst spot...never see anything.

Now my dad, he has amazing hunting where he lives out West!

Allegheny County is shotgun only as well. I have a slug barrel if the situation calls for it but I generally hunt where I can use a rifle.

I don't understand the shotgun rule. Is it to make sure you can only use one round at a time?

I think its a range thing. Rifle rounds go much further than slugs.

It's a range thing since slugs generally don't go as far. The other part is many people buy into the myth that slugs are less dangerous for various reasons, one being that they won't ricochet.

Oh that makes sense, then, in a populated county.

Congrats to your nephew, goofin!
