Bear Gang Regulations?

I'm new to hunting in PA and was wondering if there are any regulations pertaining to bear gangs or how they hunt? The whole concept is new to me. I've got to read my PA hunting regs book cover to cover in the next few days, but figured I would ask here first. Thanks.

Re: Bear Gang Regulations?

If you have more than five people participating in drives you will need a roster. You can have up to twenty five people hunting in a group and they all must be on the roster. You need to designate a captain for the group and he must carry a copy of the roster with him and the other copy must be attached to the camp or structure the party is hunting out of. Sproul

Re: Bear Gang Regulations?

start off reading everything on pages,36,37, and 38. page 31,32 are big game regs, read everthing there also.

then pages 16,17,and 18.


main thing is no groups larger than 25 persons.

you only need a roster if your hunting out of a permanant camp and cooperating together in the hunt

This is the best advice

Re: Bear Gang Regulations?

What if you are hunting with a group from a few different camps and the total number of hunters is from 5 to 25 people?

Re: Bear Gang Regulations?

I appreciate all the help. We are hunting out of a cousin's cabin, so it isn't a permanent hunting camp. Thanks, again!
