A Season on the Allegheny by Robert T. Hilliard

A Season on the Allegheny

"A Season on the Allegheny" is a rollicking account of a year spent hunting on the Allegheny National Forest. Author Robert Hilliard tracks down more than deer, turkey, and grouse - he captures the Forest's magnificent past and finds the people who are still making history on the Allegheny today. He also pursues the many controversies that swirl around Pennsylvania's only National Forest, including anti-logging and anti-drilling protests, Wilderness designations, and ecoterrorism.

"A Season on the Allegheny" also uncovers the quiet but powerful impact of hunter-based conservation groups on National Forests. It documents the many ways - from habitat improvements to legal aid - in which groups such as the Ruffed Grouse Society, National Wild Turkey Federation, and Pheasants Forever have spent countless hours and dollars making the Allegheny National Forest a better place.
