PA Seasons and Bag Limits: Check your WMU

Antiqued Background

For those of us who have been focused on archery hunting so far, make sure you check your WMU before you head out on December 2nd! I know a few guys who head out thinking “if its brown, its down.” That could get you in a jam if you hunt in WMUs 2A, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F, 2G, 2H, 3B, 3C, 4B, 4D and 4E. The first week is antlered deer only, so make sure you take a quick look at the PA Seasons and Bag Limits: http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt?open=514&objID=576240&mode=2

As always, hunt hard and be safe!

Moving waters comprise the last great frontier in North American waterfowl hunting. These are the large rivers, small streams, and tidal marshes that bisect and border this continent. They are wild, free places that draw hunters with a similar nature. Hunting on them provides ever-changing adventure and—at times—some of the best shooting imaginable.

“When conditions are right, the Mississippi River has the best duck hunting on the planet,” declares David King, a longtime freelance hunter on this Father of Waters. “Typically, this is when the water is rising and breaking into the switch willows along the banks. When this happens, the ducks can show up overnight, and they’ll be in a working frame of mind.”
