Hello and welcome.I have hunted southcentral PA since the 1960's.Lots of changes over the years.In the area I hunt,the success rate is much higher on private farmland than in the state gamelands and forests.But its hard to get permission to hunt.We have had liberal doe seasons recently which has reduced the herd.At the same time antler restrictions have increased the size of the average buck.So we're shooting fewer deer but bigger deer.Look at the harvest figures from the PA game commission to get an idea of the odds.Good Luck
