The above is nothing but hogwash for everything beyond this statement"the PGC went against a significant majority as determined by its own survey and input from hunters". The herd was not decimated, do you even know what that word means? I mean what it really means, not the meaning people use when they want to indicate that something was all but wiped out. The deer herd was too large, it was too large for decades and the habitat was being destroyed which affected all wildlife, not just the deer. In some places the deer were hit harder than others, that was by design because those were the places that need the most relief, How would you explain the deer kill reports for the past several years if the deer were mostly killed? You can't! The habitat is rebounding as was anticipated and expected by anyone who knows anything about balancing the deer numbers with the habitat, I started deer hunting in 1958 and it is by far the best time to hunt deer in PA that I and many others have ever seen. It is time to put the ole" the PGC has decimated the deer herd and that is why license sales are dropping" because it is bogus and makes those saying it seem a bit silly. In fact the numbers have slightly gone up in the last several years. Our numbers of license sales is falling less than other states. BTW, I was one of those writing letters and speaking against a Saturday opener.
