Anywhere in the state for deer and turkey. Northwest for fishing, north central for bear, in my opinion. I would look for an area with a lot of state land.

Depending upon whether you need to find work or not, Warren, Forest, and the eastern part of Venango are hard to beat. I lived in Tioga county for 5 years and the hunting and fishing is good there and in Potter county too.
PA is a beautiful state. Just drive the length of I80 and you'll see that. Most of it is great for an outdoor guy. And there are tons of acres to hunt/fish in our National forest, state forest, and state game lands. Plenty of deer bear and turkeys in most of the state.

If you want to know what a yinzer is, search "Pittsburgh Dad" the guy hits it pretty good.

Yep, ain't no deer, bear or turkey anywhere in north-central PA. Walleye or muskie either, no matter what PCR says, don't listen to him! grin

I should know, I've got a camp not far from PCR's place.

Seriously though, Potter County is called God's Country for good reason.

Lycoming County is the bear capital in PA. There's more bears killed there over the years than any other County. Big ones too, PA has a couple in the top ten world record books.

Very steep and hilly terrain in Lycoming.

That's true otis. I've got a buddy that moved into the Shippensburg/Chambersburg area of south-central PA about a year ago. It's nice country with Michaux and Tuscaora State forests nearby and Raystown lake not too far away. A wide open mix of farmland and forest out that way.

That's true for a lot of PA, 2.2 million acres of State Forests, another 1.5 million acres of State Game Lands and a couple million acres of privately held land open to hunting and trapping (timber companies and PGC access programs).

Leasing has put a dent in the amount of open private land in the last twenty years or so but there is still plenty out there.

Just stay away from the three corners, Philly in the southeast corner, Pittsburgh in the southwest and Erie in the northwest!

Lake Erie, french creek, oil creek, Allegheny river, the tionesta creeks, lots of native streams and Chautauqua lake nearby. Smallmouth, walleye, musky, trout, bear, deer turkey, beaver, fisher, bobcat, coyote, ANF..... NWPA is just a passable area-best to look farther east wink

I didn't know that Keith, thank you. And thank you all for the replies. I've been looking today at real estate over there and there are some areas where it's reasonably priced. I may have to live in a small town but who cares if your close to good hunting, fishing and trapping.

You're welcome Jeff and Nessmuck. I lived in Hamilton County for most of my childhood, one street over from Butler County.

Closer the center you get, the more you'll find people who think like you do.

Hey Art, I just looked in to Venago Co and there seems to be a lot of places for sale in the Oil City area. Is that close to hunting and fishing places?

The Allegheny , Oil Creek , French Creek , multiple small lakes in a short distance ,about any species of fish available in Pa.
with good numbers and size , every trickle of a trib to Oil Creek has wild trout and a few other streams close by do too .

Oil Creek State Park
Enough open land between state lands and tracts of land open to public close by that there's room for one more .
The area around Oil City gets rural quick , Most of the cheap real estate is in town Oil City , but if you look around
there's some nice places . The job market pretty much sucks tho .
