Whether you try your luck with a fishing rod, hunt your own game or fowl, or forage for wild ingredients at The Lodge at Glendorn, executive chef Joseph Schafer will help you cook your haul in a private class. Spread over 1,500 acres, this rustic-luxe property neighbors the Allegheny National Forest. Spring and summer are the optimal foraging seasons; look for ramps and watercress in the spring, mushrooms in July and blackberries and ginseng in August. Fall is hunting season, with trips focusing on deer, turkey and pheasant. And trout fishing is available all year, as long as the rivers don’t freeze over. $75-$500 per person.
