It only takes a one-hour drive to see some of PA's finest animals, as long as that drive is in the Pocono Mountains. Our wildlife is out and about and hunters in this four-county region are salivating. Take, for example, my drive to The Black Walnut Inn last week.
After only about 20 minutes of driving, I noticed the car ahead of me slowing down. The car was slowing down because a 6-point buck was moseying his way across the road. Then, a few miles up the road, a gobbler hopped alongside the road. Any hunter would love a shot at this turkey. Upon leaving the B&B, 4 whitetail doe meandered onto the lawn. "What a day" I thought. On my way home two more 6 or 7-point bucks found themselves bordering the road as it cuts through Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. I wanted to take the scenic route to the Black Walnut, and it did not disappoint.
