I’m new to the gun world. I’m a city slicker from Philadelphia, P.A. and about 2 years ago I’ve gotten into the gun life because I was doing something I thought was completely out of my element. The best way to sum this up is IM FREAKING HOOKED! I love gun so damn much now! I go everywhere with my CCW. I’ve spent almost half of my extra money (after bills and responsibility’s are taken care of) on things, gadgets and things like that retain to firearms and survival. Today I purchased a hunting rifle for a hog hunting trip I plan to take in April down at Hog Wild Adventures in Texas. But It’s also come to my attention that I want to do a 2 week long camping trip while also hunting and fishing for some of my food. These 2 experiences I have never even thought about doing up until recently. So I’m trying to find a nice spot on the east coast (Maybe mid west) where I can do this with a group of friends of about 6 individuals.
Is there anyone on this forum that can really recommend me a few places to look? Thank you!
I’ve hunted in Michigan before. Rabbit hunting only with my Ruger 10/22. It was hardddd lol. Because these rabbits were a good 20-25 yards but the location was in some sort of rolling hills. Between these 2 big hills there was a small valley where a lot of rabbits lived. Their holes were like little mounds and there had to be at least 50 mounds. So they would come out, peak for maybe 1 second at most, and then dart to the mound/hole they intended to run to. So within a span of 2-3 seconds you’d have raise your weapon, acquire your target, adjust and then take the shot. This type of hunting is best suited for a shot gun. My father told me to bring a shot gun but I ended up bringing my trusty 22lr. Made for VERY GOOD practice though lol.
Ex Califoria boy here now living in the Pittsburgh. Tried hunting this year for whitetail locally on public land in Western PA. That was interesting seeing as how PA has more hunters than any other state. It was like Disneyland the 1st week of summer! Except there were blaze orange hats instead of mouse ears everywhere. This year is for scouting and exploring.
It seems to me like the east coast (that I’ve been to) doesn’t have enough dirt road to truly enjoy the outdoors. Heck they actually think that Niagara Falls is a national park. If you think that’s a national park come to Utah. I’ll show you one you can quite literally get lost in
Don’t tell anyone what we have up here. I have enough out of Staters showing up this month already.
About half the cars in the parking lot of the only grocery store in town had out of State plates, and most of them brought their attitudes with them. Next, it will be idiots on 4 wheelers getting drunk and playing tree tag.

I feel your pain joe. Even the “dry” town and “family” resort was invaded by the thuggers and thugettes of the d-rat ruined cities like philthadelphia Newark and nyc Memorial Day w/e. All the other Boardwalks had the same problem:
mjrfd99, Machine gunning the unruly would go far in altering their effed up attitude and lead to better behavior in those who survive.
I deliberately never mentioned a thing about our bit of what was once heaven that the left has screwed up with their diversity and pride crap. I’ve often stated that we should empty the cars going north on I95 of their cash, then turn them around and head them back south. After August maybe I’ll have some things to tell you about out of staters and crime but right now I can’t talk. Maybe the secrecy ends in August, I’ll know more at that time.
