Bird Hunting

Central Penn prides itself on having great bird cover throughout the hunting season. We do yearly plantings for cover and food plots of grain and corn. Our hunting fields consist of a mixture of warm season switch grasses, little and big blue stem, cool season orchard grass, with food plots. Lots of places for the birds to hide.
