History of outdoors and exploration in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania's diverse terrain, which includes vast forests, rugged mountains, and tranquil lakes, has been a playground for outdoor enthusiasts for centuries. Native American tribes were the first to navigate Pennsylvania's wilderness, hunting and fishing in its abundant waters and forests. European settlers followed suit in the 17th century, exploring the state's natural resources and establishing some of America's earliest hiking trails. The 19th century saw the rise of Pennsylvania as a hub for outdoor recreation. The creation of state parks like Hickory Run and Ricketts Glen offered citizens public spaces to engage with nature. Concurrently, hunting and fishing became popular pastimes; Pennsylvania's rivers teem with trout while its forests are home to deer, bear, and turkey. In the 20th century, Pennsylvania embraced its role as an outdoor destination. The Appalachian Trail cuts through the state providing hikers with challenging terrain and breathtaking views. Today, Pennsylvania continues to attract adventurers with its 121 state parks, extensive trail systems like the Great Allegheny Passage, world-class fly fishing in streams such as Penns Creek and Yellow Breeches Creek. Pennsylvania is a large agricultural state with $7.4B of ag production, and roughly 83.9% of the land privately owned by farmers and ranchers. The major crops are cow/calf production, dairy products, corn and broilers (chicken). When planning hunting trips to Pennsylvania on private lands like farms & ranches, it's important to understand some key dates for farmers and ranchers. Ranchers in this region usually do their calving, brandings and vaccinations anywhere from February through June and will ship cattle in late fall. During these times, they are extremely busy and may be harder to communicate with. Farmers in Pennsylvania will usually begin planting their crops in late April through June and then will harvest their crops in September through early December, depending on weather.
