Re: Northampton v Duff (hunting within towns)

Brad, this nonsense happens more than most people know. Some one complains to a boro council etc about shooting or hunting and they decide to pass an ordinance without any research into their authority to do so. When a WCO is made aware of it they usually talk to the solicitor for the municipality and inform them of Duff and most times the thing is rescinded and order given not to prosecute for violating the ordinance until it is repealed. Unfortunately, some even after being told they have no authority to prohibit hunting on private property they continue with the notion that most people won't know they don't have the authority. It is those municipalities that should be prosecuted for official oppression each time charges are filed on someone.

Re: Northampton v Duff (hunting within towns)

John, I fully understand the situation.

What was in "dispute" was Pine Creek's title for the person doing the talking.

That's all, nothing more.

I fully understand the state law supercedes the local laws, as long as the state laws are legal.

Sometimes??

It really is no different than some people calling a WCO a "Game Commissioner". We all know the difference, but some have been brought up to call them that. Same as some call WCO's wardens, game protectors, etc.

Re: Northampton v Duff (hunting within towns)

Read Linda Stiener's "Another View" in October's Game News and pay attention to what she Tells the Readers to Do!

She says "Always be sure that shooting firearms &/or bows is lawful in the municipality or suburban township where you'll be hunting"

Nice!
She doesn't know about the Duff law!
I wonder how many readers will not hunt their normal areas due to her saying that in the Article?

I sent the PGC a Message on Facebook, Who knows if they will print something next month to explain to the readers that Linda Steiner was wrong and show the Duff law in there with the explanation!

Just a note for all.

This has been pinned up here for a very long time.

It is as relevant today as the day I pinned it here so long ago. Perhaps more.

Think about today's current political climate, and active bill in the state house to prevent local ordinances on firearms use, possession, and even ammo constraints. Legal by state law and court cite, but passed regularly by local government though reserved to the state.

Here, we have a robust and very effective court ruling that has been instrumental to more than a few posters just to these boards, and very likely a higher number of non HPA members.



I encourage all to take the time to read or re-read the court decision and understand this law that protects hunting from local restrictions.

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