CWD rules being bent

I saw on Facebook from Randy Kuntz taxidermy. Apparently the PGC is going to update their maps to show who is certified to take deer from and I am guessing their might be more taxidermist and processors who may not be in the boundary? I guess we will see. Might make it easier on some hunters if they don't have to debone their deer.


Anyway as posted on Facebook...
"If you are hunting in this unit this yr, I am now certified thru the game commission to take in a harvested deer in these areas WITHOUT you skinning it or deboning it. Yes my shop is outside the boundary but they made a special provision since I'm a 1/2 mi away from boarder. And to help hunters out. Pgc are updating their website this week to show whos certified and where the dumpsters are. As per meeting last night they are gonna start cracking down on hunters transporting deer out of this region. Hope this helps. Feel free to ask questions. Also I was wrong, you CANNOT bring heads back from out of state even if I was certified. There's 21 state's in cwd now. Md ms mo va wva co wy MN ny to name a few most guys hunt."

out of state deer hunting

If you hunt deer in another state it is best to get the deer processed and mounted in the state you shot it in...

If it's a popular place that caters to lots of local hunters, many of whom would've been upset that they couldn't take their deer there, as they had for years - then what's the beef?

The boundary is an arbitrary line drawn for the purposes of management. They could've just as easily extended it that 1/2 or so, to the next road/creek/whatever and no one would've been the wiser.

So they either "bent the rules", or someone realized that allowing him to handle deer that close to the DMA boundary, would better serve the interests of hunters?

This is definitely something I need to plan for now with the new rules. We hunt a good bit in WV (well outside of their CWD zones). I used to bring the heads back here to have them processed. Now I'm looking for someone in WV, but closer to home to do that work.

Where did I say that I had a beef? I said that if they included other shops that it may make it easier on some hunters. I was simply posting the information to make other hunters aware that they may have some options outside of the boundary line.

It's bending the rules.

Myself,John Klien and Dave Clark had a meeting last Monday with E.D. Bryan Burhans and Wayne LeRouche to talk with him about the restrictions on bringing deer in to a taxidermist from a CWD state/section and Bryan said there will be no exceptions.

Dave is only 800 yards from NY State but no deer are allowed into PA.

We'll see how this unfolds.....

I think some businesses would have a legitimate beef if they allow it for certain businesses but not others that are near the borders.

I also think it is silly that I can't bring in a deer from Ohio into PA when CWD hasn't been detected anywhere near where I hunt in Ohio. If it was in a CWD zone I can understand.

Where did I say that I had a beef?

Title of your thread: CWD rules being bent.

It didn't say "some exceptions being made", to accommodate processors (and hunters) that are close to the DMA boundary lines"- it said "rules being bent".

Generally, if someone makes an accusation that rules are being bent, many would take that as a statement in opposition?

As to ED Burhans saying no exceptions, perhaps enough feedback was offered to make them change their mind on this one?

If I'd hunted in that area for years and was used to taking my deer to a processor, then found out that was no longer possible due to a line being drawn that put him out of the new area, I might be unhappy to hear of it?

That didn't say I had a beef. I am just saying the rule are being bent. Perhaps you just take things the wrong way. I guess in this new PC age I need to watch what I say so I don't offend certain people. I will apologize so that you can come out of your safe space.

Don't need a safe space, but thanks for the undue concern. Generally make as much space as I need to be comfy, at any given moment. You wouldn't wanta sit next to me on a bus or airplane. Both armrests are always mine.



I've learned that you and Gene will haggle incessantly over just about anything. Must be something in that SW water, eh?
