Hunting

Hunting for deer, turkey, grouse, squirrels, and black bear is a popular use of the forest during designated seasons. Other than a few safety zones around buildings and picnic areas, hunting is permitted throughout the state forest. The Resource Management Center near Laporte serves as a bear check station and the forest district has excellent black bear habitat. Additional information on hunting can be obtained from the PA Game Commission and DCNR’s websites.
