The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is planning to expand the allowable hunting area for the upcoming Archery deer seasons in Lackawanna State Park. Within 2007, the bureau of State Parks and the Bureau of Forestry conducted deer population surveys in various locations throughout the state of Pennsylvania. Based on the results of these surveys, the allowable hunting area will expand in Lackawanna State Park to include the land west of the main campground (Fairground Hill) road. The new area will run the length of the road north to Route 438, and follow the park boundary as the west border. This land plot will accompany the acreage already available for hunting in the park, but will only be available for the archery hunting seasons. An open door public forum will be held at the Lackawanna State Park Office on September 10 between the hours of 2 and 4 p.m.
