i went to old mine road last year with my dad on the last stocking saturday...we got skunked so we went to flatbrook and i got a rooster...old mine road seems like a hit or miss...i didnt even hear a shot...how do you know what parts they stock?
I park in the spot where you turn left by the in and out Deli then you go down a bit and make a right then the parking area is about 100 yards up on the right. I also hunt over by the Bowmens club by the Shotwell property. Good bow hunting in that area.
Mack, I've never not shot my limit down on Old Mine. We usually go to the fields south of Van Campen's Inn (I think that's what it's called). Down there it's not so much when they stock, it just seems there's always birds there.
There is a lot of land near Van Campens. I think the birds fly there after the morning push. I have never gotten anything there but have heard roosters. Hopefully when I get my pup I should get something there.
There is alot of land near Van Campen's and on opening day last year the fields north of the Inn were packed. The way we went last year we had 4 of us and 1 dog, and it seemed to work well. The dog kicked up a bunch of birds for us too. It is true you get birds flying into the southern fields from the guys pushing them, but we kicked up our fair share from the brush lining the fields and a few in the forested area right by the river. Those by the river are tricky though because you can spook them enough to fly across into PA. That happened a few times last year.
