Drives for deer and bear

Looked in the book but couldn't find the answer. Is it legal for a person who has already filled their tag to participate in drives. This would be unarmed of course. Had a discussion with a buddy today and we had opposite opinions.

This is a good question. I am under the impression that as long as a person is not carrying a weapon they would be able to still walk in the woods and drive deer/bear to others. Not 100% sure on that though so I'm interested to hear what others have to say.

You are allowed to participate in drives if you have a hunting license and filled your tag already.

I would say yes, as long as they have a valid hunting license, unarmed and the required FO.....

I cant find the section in the digest...hate the online version... but wasn't it possible recently to recruit someone to participate in a deer drive without them actually having a license?

Found it. It's under big game regulations. If you wanted you could have unlicensed hunters in sight without a weapon over 18 years old and they wear required orange. Ratio of hunters to non hunters 1 to 1. I would not be surprised if people were hired out at x per hour to drive woods and brush.

Yep. Saw that....sais "an unlicensed person who had never held a hunting license in PA or any other state may participate in a drive........". But that doesn't answer my question.

My understanding is they should have a required license for what they are participating in... a drive if you dont have a usable doe or buck tag would be illegal if you have held or hold a hunting license. Taking a 'walk in the woods' is not ok. Contact the game commission for sure though.
