Any hunt there ever? Looking for some feedback.

I've driven by it many times and only see the occasional truck parked by the road. Doesn't seem to get much action.

i have been hunting it last few years, during gun week it gets slammed , but before andafter that its usually dead , some nice deer in there but ya gotta walk to find em , the 6 deer limit has really taken a toll on deer numbes out here , but they can be found if ya wanna put the leg work in , where you live at , i know you cant be far from me and cotty

I live in Washington, PA about a 70 minute drive from JHWA. My farm is 10 minutes up the road, off of Rankin road and Rt22.

cool, you pass me all the time then i live in hopedale right off 22 , anyway its good for bow , muzzleloader , and shotgun is a freakin mad house , we got there at 6 am opening morning and there were already people that had been there since 3 am , when the firing line calms down the deer go back to normal and thats when you can get a good idea on what deer are in there , other then shotgun season its quiet there
