PA Hunting Changes

Recommended Posts

Sunday Hunting may finally be allowed! Also, possibly a Saturday (instead of Monday) rifle opener on 11/30/19.

 

Both of these are game changers for me. My biggest issue with PA was wasting a Sunday not hunting. But now I can a take a Friday or Monday off and hunt 3 full days.

Neighbor hunts PA big time. He will be happy. Also shoots some nice deer there but its hard hunting. He has been doing it for a very long time. His dad has a camp and they use the rail tracks to get in. No shit the thing you pump up and down to move along the tracks!

No. I hunted state forest in 2011 and 2013. Seen a lot of deer. The entire state has AR’s either 3pt on a side or 4pt on a side depending on the zone. The buck kills get better every year.

Both of these changes are a huge deal in Pennsylvania.  The Saturday opener is going to be met with plenty of push back.  The Sunday thing is about damn (not the water holder thing Stormy) time.....

Will be sweet when Ny finally see's the light and put's in statewide Ar. Hopefully it's a wide as the ears thing when it does go thru.

I keep getting the emails from the PGC. I guess because I bought licenses there years ago. Anyway, it sounds promising

I read something a few weeks ago where they are also talking about allowing semi-auto rifles down there. People in the comments were losing their shit about it too. It made the baiting and crossbow threads on here look extremely tame in comparison. PA has some strange regs.

About the STRANGEST regs in the world...In Pa it is illegal to shoot rabbits, squirrels, or woodchucks with your Ruger 10-22..

How sick is THAT  ??

Nothing in stone yet. It's showing promise that the move from Monday to Saturday will likely happen.  I am sure the small towns in the traditional deer rich mountains will suffer imensly from this change. I guess now if this happens the Monday after Thanksgiving will no longer be a state holiday.

Sunday hunting is on the table but is certainly not a given yet. The farm bureau is staunchly against the Sunday hunting as are a lot of land owners. The hunter numbers and mentality in PA is so much different than anywhere else. NY is a cake walk compared to PA. The last I heard was that the farm bureau was maybe willing to compromise IF some changes were made to the trespassing laws...something that has been needed for a long time.

Semi rifle for big game is not looking good for making it through again this year. Surprisingly the biggest opponent to this is hunters themselves.

I've lived here most of my life, I am glad things are finally starting to turn around. Nothing is etched in stone yet, but the momentum is now in place.  :imsohappy:

I have never understood the mindset of most of the people who live here, traditions, no matter how silly or outdated, are treated like gospel, and many are so reluctant to any type of change that it becomes laughable. But most of the old-timers (I'm one myself) are losing their say, and the younger generation sees through this. I welcome PA finally coming into the 21st century.
