New online feature helps with locating, exploring state game lands.
HARRISBURG – Looking to spend some time outdoors, but don’t know where to go?  A new offering from the Pennsylvania Game Commission might hold the answer.
The Game Commission has launched on its website a new Mapping Center that will help users to locate state game lands and other hunting grounds, view topography and aerial photos for tracts, and even find a place to park when they arrive.
Those searching for outdoor-recreation opportunities can search by game lands number, county, region or wildlife management unit. Users also can click on any game lands defined on the map to see a more detailed layout of access roads, parking areas and buildings there. The map can also be set to show hunter access points on private lands.
Outdoor enthusiasts can customize their own maps and bookmark their favorites, and print them out to use afield or to leave directions for where they’ll be.
“The new Mapping Center represents a big upgrade in terms of the quantity and quality of information available,” said Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe. “Anyone interested in spending time on state game lands, or other public-access properties, will find it useful.”
A short video on how to use the Mapping Center is available at the, and can be found by clicking on the icon titled “State Game Lands Mapping Center.”  The Mapping Center can be accessed directly at

Magnus Stinger Buzzcut Broadheads

I shot these broadheads this weekend and love them.  The 100 grain buzzcut with 2 bleeder blades flew exactly like my field points and had great penetration. I maybe finished with Rage broadheads.

These heads also have a lifetime replacement guarantee, yeah... at any time send it back to Magnus and they send you a new broadhead.  What are your thoughts?

The New Accessible Hunter Gun Mount

Here is the long anticipated ACCESSIBLE HUNTER GUN MOUNT in action.  It is an idea that Ed and I have been working on together for some time. 

He made this model by hand and I am so glad  to have it. As a shooter with a disability, Ed understands the importance of top quality mounts.  We could not buy one so we engineered our own.  It shoots like a dream and is safe to roll around with the muzzle pointed down.

We need to paint this mount and make a few more tweaks to pretty it up, but it is finally here, the perfect gun mount!  Check back soon to follow as we move forward with this mount.
