girls timberland Hunters Prepare for Rifle Deer Season
“We just moved here from Philadelphia last January, and this is my first hunt,” Henry Wessel of Meshoppen said. “For being a city boy, I’m going to give it a try and see what happens.”
Newswatch 16 caught up with some hunters stocking up for the big day at Gay’s True Value in Tunkhannock. Workers there said they’ve had a rush of sales for the start of the season.
“Gun sales are good,” Gay’s employee Dave Miller said. “The ammo’s going well. Yeah, we’re doing well.”
Another place that is busy is J Sports Center in Throop.
“It’s very brisk selling ammunition,” J Sports Center owner Joe Grizzanti said. “Mounting scopes, selling rifles, handguns, accessories for hunting.”
The business has been open for 41 years. They’re usually closed Sundays but made an exception for the eve of deer season.
We spoke to many hunters who said the thing they’re looking forward to most is getting out in nature.
“Being a hunter,
sitting in a tree stand all day, you see things the average person walking through the woods doesn’t really get a chance to see,” Milanesi said.
Deer hunting season lasts until December 9.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Game Commission expects more than half a million hunters to take part in the rifle deer season in the coming days.
You a moron. The lady was the shooters neighbor, and he feels awful. She was walking in a known hunting area, and not wearing orange, which is how a hunter knows to not shoot. her dogs were quiet, and small, not visible. If you think you can clearly see something through the woods at 200 yards and know it not a deer, when it not wearing orange, you a damn liar. We need a season to hunt down idiots like you. Hunters hunt to feed their families. Idiots like you eat processed or falsely organic garbage. Save the world,
