PA – HUNTING – Pennsylvania Game Commission looks to expand hunting chances during 2 Sundays

If you only have a couple days to do something, you should be able to take full advantage of those opportunities. That appears to be the focus of what’s happening with the Pennsylvania Game Commission regarding Sunday hunting. The commission opened three Sundays for big game hunting in 2020. The commission is now planning to discuss what additional animals can be hunted on two of the three Sundays that have been approved for sportsmen. Some of the proposed changes on the state’s agenda include adding small game hunting to the Sundays that were used last year for archery deer and black bear hunting. The plans will be discussed at a virtual meeting of the game commission’s board Jan. 23 at 8:30 a.m. Under the proposal, archery deer hunting Sunday, Nov. 14, and black bear hunting Sunday, Nov. 21, would include small game such as squirrel, pheasants, ruffed grouse, rabbits and groundhogs. Turkey are not included in these days. The third Sunday that allows hunting is proposed to be Nov. 28 for rifle deer season. No additional animals are being considered for this Sunday. Another change being discussed is to streamline regulations for rifle deer season. The proposal would make the two-week season after Thanksgiving be buck and doe throughout the commonwealth. Right now, some wildlife management units offer buck only hunting the first week and then buck and doe the second week. The change would make the entire state have the same two-week buck and doe season. The meeting’s agenda said the change is “recommended to simplify regulations and provide increased opportunity, especially for younger hunters.”  [full article]
