Hunting of all seasons is renowned in the Pine Creek Valley. The mountains surrounding the valley host one of the most productive bear habitats in the nation. The second largest bear ever taken in the US came from this area; an 857 pound monster! Turkey and deer hunting are also a favorite of locals and visitors alike. In October of 2018, a guest shot a 10 point buck on a nearby game land.
