Accident Free Turkey Season

The PGC posted this on their Facebook page.

"Pennsylvania turkey hunters had a perfect safety record in the recently completed 2019 turkey season. At a time when state legislators are considering expanded Sunday hunting opportunities, and opponents have raised questions about hunter safety, the accident-free spring turkey season is something to note, and something of which all hunters can be proud.

No hunting-related shooting incidents were reported to the Game Commission during the month-long season. While years ago, it was common for hundreds of incidents to occur in a year, the total has dipped to about a couple dozen, thanks in part to the requirement for all first-time license buyers to complete a Hunter-Trapper Education training course. Administering the course wouldn’t be possible without a dedicated team of Hunter-Trapper Education instructors, who volunteer their time to teach it.

Thank you to our instructors and to all of our hunters for making safety a top priority in the woods!"

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Yeah at the rate hunters have just plain quit this season I guess there's no accidents...it take too much effort for the under 30 crowd, just easier to shoot them on the phone gaming..great news for those remaking.. Didn't see but maybe 5 hunters all season and less than 20 shots all around...

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
