Hunting

Clearfield County has plenty of room for hunters, and special seasons for bow and muzzleloaders. Several sportsmen's groups in the area also hold shoots and contests throughout the year, which are open to the public.

Hunters are welcome at Wopsononock Natural Area, a 550+ acre CCRTA owned and managed plot in Southern Clearfield County. Close  to two state game lands, hunters will find "wopsy" to be a favorite spot for deer, bear and turkey. Hunting is also permitted on State Game Commission leased land near Curwensville Lake Recreation Area, which has extended its season to accommodate hunters wishing to camp close by. Also, State Forests provide an excellent place for hunters to roam.
