my dad and i normally hunt zone 23. my grandad did too until the last 3 years he was around. about 5 miles in from rt. 206 off quaker bridge rd. we hunted there for the last 20 years. i got a very, very small doe during permit shotgun season out there back in 2002. :( was my first deer. i am unhappy about the size. but happy i got 1. we tried area 19 around the carranzza memorial in 2000 and 2001. in the january part of permit shotgun. didn't see any deer. saw lots of tracks and 1 turkey but he wasn't in season then. i tried myself area 25 near my in-laws had 6 run across the road. i couldn't shoot because i was on the road and there was a bend in the road. and my car was just on the other side of them too.:mad: its also illegal to shoot up down or across a road.
