Guess is that all the standing, swampy water contributed to the proliferation of that nasty little midge.

Some bad news. Been through EHD in another state. For a long time, I never depended on a large herd would last for long. What's now may not be tomorrow.

<span style="font-weight: bold"> The original post is false or at best unsubstantiated.

There is no press release or other than this one blog to suggest the cancellation of the season.

http://www.goerieblogs.com/sports/nw...ning-canceled/
</span>



<span style="font-size: 17pt"> </span> As a reminder, this is the sort of independence that the GC needs to be able to respond to such incidents. If some of you recall, the proposed bill from last week would have prevented this sort of decision as it would have had to be approved by a political board.

It is also important to remember, the Rep has promised to double down on getting that bill passed next session.


Today it is EHD. Tomorrow it could be any number of things, and maybe not even deer related. Avian flu affecting water fowl, turkeys, grouse or pheasants. CWD is on our borders. Perhaps other issues that would affect wildlife statewide or in localized areas.

Flexibility is needed in wildlife management. This is just one example.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Re: PGC cancels Pymatuning deer hunts due to EHD

I often wondered as I sat and watched the management area and the deer in them if the setting enabled disease to be spread given such close quarters...

FALSE GC cancels Pymatuning deer hunts due EHD

Ahhhh, <span style="font-weight: bold">went in to get the press release for posting..... NOT THERE.</span>


<span style="font-weight: bold">The only press release about the Pymatuning WMA is this press release from September 19 and it only announces the presence of the disease. No death count, shortening or restriction on the season or other factors are in the press release. </span>

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.
