it would be nice if they clarify the water course language in this law. lots of grey areas in it.

Agreed. If youíre gonna fine someone $1000-$1500, there should be clarity in the law. When the BG cubby law first was enacted, it was said that technically everything at a lower elevation from the highest peak in Pa could meet the legal definition of a water course. I think thatís quite a stretch of the definition, but Iíd like to see the law fleshed out to remove any gray areas.

I agree, that definition of water a watercourse or waterway really needs to be refined, it is too open to interpretation. Semi permanent flooded areas should just be removed from the definition and say a riverine system, lake or pond permanently containing water. I never liked that definition.

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

I can live with anything the PGC comes up with, just clearly spell it out so thereís no confusion. Iím not much of a 160 guy anyway, if you want to catch coons fast and easy, use DPs. I have seen 160s set in a watercourse without a cubby box, ( blind sets, culverts )which is legal. Not sure if Iíd want to use them that way. At least with a cubby box theyíre set back inside 7Ē.

I canít say in 50 years of trapping that Iíve ever seen any 220s , 280s, or 330s illegally set on dry ground. When I was groundhog hunting Iíve encountered some 220s that farmers set on holes....thatís their war to fight as they see fit.
