Descrizione

A Penn's Woods Penning Compilation
From 1990-1999, I hunted frequently from my home in southeastern Pennsylvania, but in 1999 I had the opportunity to move to northeastern Pennsylvania and pursue my hunting, fishing, and motorcycling full-time as a writer. From 1999-2006, I hunted, or fished, or motorcycled year-round - hunting every other day each year from September to February, and again in May. I fished almost every other day from ice-out until the leaves fell, taking time off from fishing only for frequent motorcycle road trips to near and far lands. It was the greatest time of my life. If you ever have the opportunity to live the outdoorsman's life full-time, don't hesitate to do it. You'll never regret it.
Over a four-year period, 1998-2002, these musings appeared in Pennsylvania Game & Fish, Pennsylvania Game News, Pennsylvania Outdoor Times, Pennsylvania Sportsman, and The Mountain Journal. Hunting Penn's Woods was an honor and a privilege and these articles represent only a fraction of the immense enjoyment I received as a Pennsylvania hunter.

A Penn's Woods Penning (Vol. 1) – A Pennsylvania Hunter
These ten articles begin with a humorous look at the curse of always being a minute too late for when the real action happens. If you've ever heard, "You should have been here yesterday", you'll know what the author means. Next is a story of the Southwest Region's bear population recovery - largely due to the efforts of the Game Commission's Dr. Gary Alt. Love him or hate him, he's done more to improve Pennsylvania's big game hunting than anyone else in the modern era and made Pennsylvania a contender for a world-record black bear. The practical side of things is covered in Deer Butchering, Dutch Country Doves, and Your Compass with tips on how to improve your days afield. The informational side of things is covered in License Fee Increase and New Bow Hunting Regulations. Promised Land Turkeys is a "humorous" look at what sometimes happens when you're hunting on public lands and what you should do about it. The final article describes the hunter we'd all like to be - if we could.

Foreword to Backroad Bob’s

Hunting Adventures

I became a hunter late in life at the age of thirty-two. It wasn't a family tradition that introduced me to hunting, it was a neighbor that grew up in rural Pennsylvania hunting with his father and brother and I didn't meet him in the field. I met him when I was fly fishing the retention basin of our suburban development that had been stocked with largemouth bass. An opening conversation of, Are there fish in there?, lead to seventeen years of intensive hunting in Penn's Woods ending only after a shooting accident lead to a botched eye surgery that resulted in a blind eye and warnings from doctors never to shoot a gun again and possibly lose the one eye I had left.

Although I was introduced to archery at an early age when summer camps still included handling lethal weapons, I never handled a firearm until taking the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Hunter-Trapper Education course in my mid-teens. In my early teens, I accompanied the son of the kind gentleman that taught me how to fly fish for trout, as we stalked pheasants in his family's hay fields, but that was the extent of my hunting until my early thirties.

Trout fishing trips with my suburban neighbor lead to stops at gun shops and an invitation to hunt on his family's farm in Dubois. That lead to stops at every gun shop I passed until I owned the classic guns I had read about in the dozens of gun books I immersed myself in during the early to mid-1990s.

The most compelling reads were Peter Capstick's African adventures - a destination I extensively researched and hoped to complete a safari to one day until my shooting accident ended that dream and many others. What's left are these stories of hunting Penn's Woods.

Acknowledgments

I'd like to thank everyone that ever took me hunting, went hunting with me, or suggested and/or offered a new spot to go hunting. There were many, but the ones that come to mind readily are Chris, Robert, Merritt, Bill, Ken, and Jack. The dogs that I hunted over, Jenny and Wendy, deserve special mention too. There's no more satisfying day than hunting over a good dog.

Sitting in deer stands, turkey blinds, and coyote hides provided plenty of idle time to pen these musings and that lead to a four-year membership in the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association. That allowed me the privilege of being surrounded by professional outdoor writers and to see the inner workings of outdoor journalism in Pennsylvania. My membership in that well-respected and storied body was cut short by other commitments and health issues, but I remain thankful for the experience.

The forefathers that established the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the present directors and employees deserve a tip of the hat too. They administer one of largest public hunting programs in the U.S. and provide almost endless hunting opportunities for the relatively small price of a license. Lastly, thanks to all the editors who thought I had something to offer their readers.

Hunting Adventures

Over a four-year period, 1998-2002, these musings appeared in Pennsylvania Game & Fish, Pennsylvania Game News, Pennsylvania Outdoor Times, Pennsylvania Sportsman, and The Mountain Journal. Within these articles you'll find humor, useful information, and an insight into how big buck hunters think and how they are different from the average hunter.

Hunting Penn's Woods was an honor and a privilege and these articles represent only a fraction of the immense enjoyment I received as a Pennsylvania hunter. From 1990-1999, I hunted frequently from my home in southeastern Pennsylvania, but in 1999 I had the opportunity to move to northeastern Pennsylvania and pursue my hunting, fishing, and motorcycling hobbies full-time, and I took full advantage of that opportunity.

From 1999-2008, I hunted, or fished, or motorcycled year-round - hunting every other day each year from September to February, and again in May. I fished almost every other day from ice-out until the leaves fell, taking time off from fishing only for frequent motorcycle road trips to near and far lands. It was the greatest time of my life. If you ever have the opportunity to live the outdoorsman's life full-time, don't hesitate to do it. You'll never regret it.

Always A Minute Too Late - The Continuing Saga Of Just Missed Opportunities

by Robert H. Miller

A CURSE?

For years, I thought it was just a coincidence, but now I think it’s a curse. It’s happened too many times not to be a deliberate attempt to test my perseverance. I don’t know what I did to deserve this, but lucky for me I’m as stubborn as they get (my grandmother came to America straight from County Donegal) and nothing will stop me from hunting and fishing my beloved Penn’s Woods. What am I talking about? Well, I’m talking about a scenario that’s been too-oft repeated in my privileged decades of hunting and fishing the vast public lands of this Commonwealth. It’s something I call, Always A Minute Too Late.

My most vivid memory of this scenario, the one that got me thinking the others couldn’t all be coincidence, took place three years ago in the Northeast Region on State Game Land (SGL) # 205, Schnecksville. I had arisen early that first morning of small game season to complete the hour-and-a-half drive from my home outside of Philadelphia. Schnecksville was the closest public hunting land that didn’t sound like a war zone on opening day. It wasn’t the closest public hunting lands stocked with pheasants, but I didn’t feel like I needed a flak jacket when I hunted there either.

MY GAME PLAN

I arrived with the stars still shining. My game plan was to hike up a steep hillside with the hope that no other hunters had the will or desire to make that climb. I wanted to be the first one with a dog on that hillside that morning. In years past, similar strategies had worked very well and I was
