Pennsylvania Hunting Outfitters and Guides Deer Facts

The white-tailed deer, commonly referred to as the whitetail, is perhaps Pennsylvania's best-known wildlife species. It is seen in the state's wildlife areas, parks, and nature preserves as well as in the backyards of rural and suburban residents. The state's only big game animal, it has pro-vided table fare for generations of the state's inhabitants from Native Americans to thou-sands of sportsmen and women today. However, the white-tailed deer hasn't always been as abundant in the state as it is today. As a matter of fact, there was a period of time (1904 to 1923) when the deer was absent in the state. As Pennsylvania was settled, habitat was eliminated and hunting was unregulated. By the early 1900s white-tailed deer were extremely rare in the state. Between the 1920s and 1930s, limited stocking combined with the natural movement of deer from neighboring states into Pennsylvania, and the establishment and strict enforcement of hunting laws allowed the development of a herd that today occupies all 67 counties. Whitetails, especially in Pennsylvania, are also well known for their antlers. The whitetail buck grows its first set of antlers when it is a year old. Each year, a buck's antlers begin growing in the early spring. The developing antler is covered with a thick velvety skin rich with blood vessels and nerves. Decreasing day length in the late summer and early fall triggers many physical changes in the buck, including termination of the blood supply to the antlers. The antlers begin to harden soon thereafter and by August or September, the velvet is shed as the buck rubs his antlers against trees and other solid objects in the fields and woods. The buck is left with a rack of hard polished antlers. In a sound environment--abundant and nutritious food and water, racks can grow to massive size. Deer in poor habitat will not only appear thin, but have small antlers as well. Unlike horns of cattle, antlers are not a permanent part of a male deer's body. In, Pennsylvania bucks typically shed or drop their antlers in December and January, following the fall breeding season. Hearing, sight, and smell are well developed in the white-tailed deer as any hunter will verify. Individually these senses are impressive; in combination they go a long way in helping deer survive. Hearing is used to identify the presence of other animals, including human beings, nearby. Smell is also used for this purpose and to help the deer select food. The whitetail's eyes are set to the side of its head allowing it to see almost all the way around its body. Whitetails prefer an area with diverse food and cover types, including mixed-aged timber stands. Ideal habitat will provide a mixture of forest, brush land, and cropland in blocks of one to two square miles. Deer in Pennsylvania eat a wide variety of items; among them are: wild crabapple, corn, sumac, Japanese honeysuckle, grasses, greenbriar, clover, soybeans, jewelweed, acorns, dogwoods, and miscellaneous woody plants.

 


Pennsylvania Hunting Outfitters and Guides Turkey Facts

By the 1930s, wild turkey populations were extirpated or reduced to dangerously low levels except in the more remote and rugged portions of their original range. Up to 10% of the 30,000 turkey remaining nationwide survived in the rugged Ridge and Valley Province of central Pennsylvania. These locales were not suitable for farming or lumbering, and were difficult for hunters to access. When Pennsylvania was first settled, eastern wild turkey were abundant, with the exception of the Allegheny Plateau Region in the northcentral part of the state. Prolonged deep snow cover and understory shading from vast expanses of forests containing virgin white pine and eastern hemlock probably combined to create an unsuitable environment for wild turkey in this region. Turkey beards are actually comprised of bristles or filaments that appear to be hair-like modified feathers known as mesofiloplumes. The individual bristles emerge from a single follicle or papillae and the number of bristles in the beard varies. Unlike feathers, beards are not molted each year. Turkey Beards grow at the rate of 3 to 5 inches per year but the length of the beard is limited because the end is worn as the turkey feeds in snow or even on dry ground. Beards exceeding 10 or 11 inches in length are uncommon in the northeast. The average life expectancy of a wild turkey is about three years. Some turkey live much longer, but most wild turkey die young. The record for a banded hen in the wild is about 13 years. Turkey have a crop, an enlargement of the esophagus in the neck area, where food is temporarily stored. Not all birds have crops; many seed eating songbirds, ducks and geese have no true crop. It is a special adaptation in birds that need to swallow large amounts of whole foods in a hurry, much faster than the stomach can accommodate, like whole acorns. The crop of the turkey is rather large, allowing a large gobbler to eat a pound of food at one meal. A hen turkey lays an egg nearly every day until her nest contains 8-15 (average, 12; smaller clutches by younger birds), but won't begin incubating constantly until after all eggs are laid. The wild turkey species is, by nature, a flocking and social species. Being such, flocks maintain home ranges and recognize individual animals within each flock. They establish a 'pecking order' (like chickens) with dominant & subordinate individuals; dominant individuals will peck at or chase subordinates, especially away from food sources.


Pennsylvania Hunting Outfitters and Guides Bear Facts

Pennsylvania has been a home to black bears since before the earliest settlers arrived. They have been roaming in our forests, wallowing in our bogs and swamps, and living around our farms and homes for a long, long time. Although three species of bears inhabit North America, only the black bear can be found in Pennsylvania. Population estimates in recent years have ranged from 8,000 to 10,000 bears. Black bears are very agile, can run up to 35 mph, climb trees and swim well. They may live up to 25 years in the wild, although few do. Black bear are intelligent and curious. Studies show bears can see colors, recognize human forms, and notice even the slightest movement. However, bear usually rely on their acute sense of smell and, to a lesser degree, hearing to locate food and warn them of danger. Despite their common name, black bear are not always black. They may be cinnamon-colored, blond or black. Often they have a white spot or on their chest. Black bear appear heavy and have short, powerful legs. Adults usually weigh from 200 to 600 pounds, with rare individuals weighing up to 900 pounds. Males are called boars; females, sows. An adult male normally weighs more than an adult sow, sometimes twice as much.
Bear tracks are distinctive. The hind footprint resembles a human's. Bears have five toes. The front foot is shorter than the rear, which is long and narrow. Claw marks may or may not be visible. Bear use trails just as people do. Look for tracks in soft earth or around mud puddles. Watch for claw marks on smooth-barked trees or rotten logs that have been ripped apart for insects. It's also easy to recognize a black bear sizable droppings of partly-digested berries, corn or animal hair. Adult black bear make a variety of sounds that include woofing, growls and jaw-popping. Sows communicate with their cubs by using low grunts or huffs. Cubs whimper, chuckle and bawl.
