We have a roughly 1,000 acre active farming and forestry property in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania now open to sixty hunters. After many years of running a semi public deer hunting program, we have gone to a September 1-June 1 hunting and fishing lease, everything included except groundhogs and trapping. I do all the trapping. Catch and release fishing on over a private mile of Clark’s Creek and in our little farm pond. Four parking areas. Fantastic access to adjoining 43,000 acre SGL and Ibberson Conservation Area. $650.00 for everything. No guests, our insurance policy only allows the actual lease holder. Contact me here by message if you are interested or have questions.

$39 an acre --------- makes leases in Tx look cheap.

Just under 17ac per hunter is awesome but the no groundhogs is a deal breaker for me..........

Your basically paying for semi-private access to 43,000 acres of Pennsylvania State Gamelands. Pennsylvania’s SGL’s and State Forests are open to the public for hunting. They get hunted pretty hard during Rifle Deer and Bear seasons.

I lived in PA for a year, and when season opened up, there were more trucks on the shoulders of the highway than cigarette butts I think. In lots of places around Texas, deer hunker down opening weekend, but I imagine up there it is insane, because they don't "pass" on a deer. Hundreds of people just tromping through the woods like the bad guys on Ms. PacMan. BUT, with the population density and hunting on the rise, it is what it is, for the northeast. HUGE bodies on them deer, though!

I’ve been watching a show called “ The Hunting Public” on Amazon prime lately.

As the title suggests, their main focus is on hunting public land in many different states for whitetail deer.

There is about 6-8 guys who are on the show and one of the show was focused on opening day of gun season in Wisconsin. They follow a guy who is going on his annual opening day tradition on his families 15 acre tract of land.

3 stands on 15 acres. You can see multiple other hunters from his position that are on the border of the 15 acre tract. While filming you hear rifle shots after rifle shot. Eventually they do get a shot at a buck.


Insane amount of pressure but I assume that is commonplace in many areas these days. Feel very, very fortunate for my hunting opportunities hunting low pressure private land tracts


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.
