Semiautomatic rifles and shotguns and air rifles are coming to Pennsylvania’s woods this fall, if Pennsylvania Game Commissioners give final approval to rules changes preliminarily adopted this week. Here’s their reasoning.
Record-size white-tailed deer are rare and always have been. But hunters are proving more discriminating when it comes to what they’ll shoot.
Chronic wasting disease has popped up again in Pennsylvania, this time in connection with captive deer. Hunters inside and outside fences may be impacted as a result.
It’s all over but the certification. Two hunters this past fall killed what seem certain to be new world records.
Shooting a deer in an urban area is always challenging. But for one hunter, the reward was a once-in-a-lifetime animal.
Every deer taken by a hunter holds special memories. In this case, though, bagging a buck was more about honoring a man gone than anything else.
Successful Pennsylvania bear hunters have to check in the animals they harvest. Should they have to, though? Every year? That’s what some are wondering.
Bad news with stocked pheasants? Sunday hunting? Unusual animals in unusual places, wildlife trafficking, hunter harvests and changing seasons? It’s all here.
Changes may be coming to Pennsylvania’s hunting and trapping seasons. Plus, some previously temporary rules may become permanent.
