Hi all, Finally getting a chance to get into deer hunting. I hunted small game and turkey as a kid but never deer. I plan on giving partridge run wma a go this year and any tips would be greatly appreciated .

Welcome! Be mobile! You gotta hunt deer where they are not where you think they should be! If you are able to pack light look for hot sign and setup on it!

Welcome! Nice to have you join us!

Partridge Run has a good population of deer. It's also large enough where you can find a good spot off the beaten path. You should already be scouting and looking for those out of the way places. Opening weekend, and Thanksgiving weekend will see the most hunters there. But it isn't over run, even on those weekends. At mid season, during the week, you'll find the fewest hunters. But the deer are still there! And some nice bucks as well.

The Fawn lake area, will see the most hunting pressure. The steepness of the Ridge Road side, will keep most hunters away. Get the hint?

 

Good luck out there!

Renslearville state forest is pretty much a ghost town after opening weekend.  Lot of private, but lot of public.  Something like OnX will help you navigate around those.  Hunting the mouth of the ravine seems likely?
