Deer Check Station Open on SR 59 for Four Days First Week of Firearms Deer Season

Bradford, Pa.:  Deer hunters hunting in McKean County are reminded that the deer check station on SR 59 will be open on Saturday (11/28), Sunday (11/29), Monday (11/30), and the following Saturday (12/5) of the first week of firearms deer season.  The check station service is free to hunters.  Hunters are encouraged to bring their deer in to learn the age of your deer, the health, and other biological statistics.  The check station is located on SR 59 at the Timberdoodle Flats Wildlife Trail, near the junction of SR 59 and SR 321N, and is staffed by Kinzua Quality Deer Cooperative (KQDC) volunteers with professional backgrounds in deer management.

Each hunter that brings a deer to the Timberdoodle Flats Check Station of the KQDC during the 2019 firearms deer season will receive a raffle ticket for cash prizes AND a blaze orange KQDC hat, while hat supplies last.  Those who bring in an antlerless deer will receive a ticket for $500.00 cash and those who have an antlered deer checked will receive a chance to win $250.00 cash.  The raffle will be drawn the day after the end of rifle deer season (season ends December 12, 2020).

Deer should be harvested within or near the KQDC.  The KQDC is located west of Bradford and north of Kane in McKean and Warren Counties.   

Hunters are particularly encouraged to bring in deer harvested with their DMAP permit.

The KQDC Check Station will be open on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and the following Saturday of the first week of firearms deer season, November 28, 29, 30, and December 5.  The check station’s hours of operation will be from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. all four days.

All deer are weighed and checked for sex, age, and health, and additional data are collected on antlered deer for points, spread, and beam diameter.  The data collected provides critical information used in managing the health of the herd.

The KQDC will be posting recent trail cam photos of deer at the check stations.  A list of deer processors and the most up-to-date info on Chronic Wasting Disease will also be available at the check station.

Maps will also be available for hunters at the KQDC check stations.  Maps will show where recent wood harvests have occurred, deer densities over last winter, and how the roads are marked.  Pick up your info at the check stations so you can better hunt the KQDC.  The KQDC is almost 75,000 acres of public and private lands managed to improve deer populations and habitat.  The cooperators are Sand County Foundation, Allegheny National Forest Vacation Bureau, Allegheny National Forest, Bradford Water Authority, Conservation Forestry, Collins Pine Co. (Kane Hardwood), and RAM Forest Products.  Additional information can be obtained at or KQDC.
