I guess maybe I can't grasp a simple concept... But my tradition is built around hunting the first day. I couldn't give a rip whether it starts on a Saturday or a Monday, As for me, it's one more day to hunt and I don't have to take off a days work.

And yes it will pass
Even the sponsor of the bill said that the earliest that it would take effect would be the 19-20 season. The bill still has a way to go before the PGC gets authority.

So next year when the licenses continue to decrease. What changes are next to supposedly retain and attract hunters? When is time to say enough is enough and stop making changes. This is getting ridiculous. There are so many different seasons, itís all getting confusing and just to much. Needs to be simplified.

They did simplify it. They really simplified the FO requirement today.

If the seasons are too much to remember the PGC offers a mobile calendar that you can put on your phone or computer to help. https://www.pgc.pa.gov/HuntTrap/Page...-Calendar.aspx

The PGC has been making changes for many years and those changes will continue as they try to do the best they can to provide opportunity and manage game populations. This is just another change of many yet to come.

if this passes, it wont be implemented right away as the seasons for next year were just voted in. At the very earliest it would be 20-21 season before we could see sundays!

FLUORESCENT ORANGE REQUIREMENTS SIMPLIFIED

The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today gave final approval to a measure that simplifies requirements to wear fluorescent orange material while hunting.

There are no changes to the requirements that apply in many seasons. And the use of orange continues to be highly recommended for all seasons, whether required or not.

The changes will become effective in the 2019-20 license year to begin July 1.

The new regulations eliminate the requirement to wear fluorescent orange at any time while archery hunting for deer, bear or elk. This eliminates all overlap periods when archery hunters were required to wear varying amounts of fluorescent orange while moving or post orange material while in a fixed position.

The regulations also eliminate the requirement for fall turkey hunters to wear fluorescent orange material.

All other seasons would continue with their existing fluorescent orange requirements.

Hunters in deer, bear and elk firearms seasons, small game season, and those hunting coyotes during daylight hours within open deer, bear or elk firearms seasons, must continue to wear, at all times, 250 square inches of daylight fluorescent orange material on the head, chest and back combined, visible 360 degrees. Woodchuck hunters must continue to wear a solid fluorescent orange hat at all times. And hunters in seasons for crows, doves, waterfowl, post-Christmas flintlock deer, spring turkeys and furbearers (with the exception of coyotes as noted above) continue without fluorescent orange requirements.

The requirement to post orange while deer, bear or elk hunting from an enclosed blind also remains.

Commissioners said the changes are intended to clear up the complexity of existing fluorescent orange requirements, which each year result in a significant number of violations detected by State Game Wardens.

Pa's seasons are confusing? I guess we all struggle with different things.
