Default Groundhog hunting in Pa.

I live in Scottdale Pa about 50 miles south east of Pittsburgh. I am looking for someone I can go groundhog hunting with this spring and summer. Thanks Dale.

I have found one person to go ground hog hunting with but it would be better with three. ;D

I have a brother who lives in Spring Church (Good luck finding that one on the map), not too far from Apollo.
Is that anywhere near your area?? ???

I carry a single shot.
'cause it only takes one shot.

I think Apollo is about 70 or 80 miles from me.

It's hard to find good places to hunt groundhogs in south west Pennsylvania because of urban sprawl.

Most of the land is now posted no hunting or no trespassing.

You need to get further north - like Indiana County or Blair or Cambria to find places to hunt that is large enough for more than one person.

3 people would be pretty hard, even where I live because there would not be enough groundhogs to go around and people moving around would mess up your hunting because the groundhogs have very good eye sight and after you shoot a couple of them - you educate them and they get harder and harder to find.

A smart groundhog that has been shot at before remembers what a gun shot sounds like and heads for the hills after the first shot.

I live near delmont, not to far, love blasting hogs. We try to shoot them at long range but sometimes all it is is shooting. Get back to me and we'll get together.
