I'm just west of Hamilton on 218 but in mills county so probably less than 15 miles from you. We average about 1 deer per 10-12 acres. Here's a few you may have seen in my other post:

Like all things you'll get out what you put in. We've fed 24,000lbs of protein this year and will plant 50 acres of oats, turnips and clover.

grab you some field peas and mix in there. I was amazed with some trials I ran 15 or so years ago with different seeds. One year all the feed stores in my area were sold out of field peas and I went by our local HEB and bought several bags of blackeyed peas (like you cook) and tossed them out, deer stayed hooked up on those until first frost before moving to oats.

218 west of Hamilton is very hit and miss. You may see a lot of deer, a few deer but some giants, or not hardly any deer at all. Where is your place in relation to Pottsville and Indian Gap?

I hunt family land on two peoperties in the vicinity, one north and one south of 218. Although only 30 miles apart, the two properties are night and day.

If you need tips on where to eat and local services in the area, shoot me a PM and I'll be happy to help. Happy Hunting!!
