Published May 8, 2012, 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 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, and others, have spent countless hours and dollars making the Allegheny National Forest a better place.
The funny and insightful new book by Hilliard was featured for the second time in the November 18 edition of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. In an August 2012 feature, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette called A Season on the Allegheny “well-written and well-researched."  The November article highlights Rob's strategies for deer hunting alone on the Allegheny National Forest. A Season on the Allegheny is an Amazon Top 10 Best Seller in both the Hunting and Conservation categories and Amazon reviewers give it a perfect 5-star rating.  Order this exciting, best selling, new book from RGS and support your favorite cause.
Enjoy the book that reviewers call “true and authentic” and “not just for the avid hunter but also for all of us who love nature.”
