MEMORANDUM
Posted: February 11, 2013 04:03 PM
From: Representative Michael Hanna
To: All House members
Subject: Co-Sponsor- Amending Title 34 Game
In the coming weeks, I intend to introduce legislation amending Title 34 (Game) to provide Pennsylvania’s approximately 18,000 disabled hunters equal opportunity to harvest game in the field.

The proposed legislation seeks to grant individuals with a lifetime disabled persons hunting permit use of electric motorized off-highway vehicles for the purposes of hunting.

My legislation would allow lifetime disabled permit hunters the ability to hunt game from an electric motorized off-highway vehicle and places restrictions on other vehicles such as automobiles which are currently used as mobile blinds. These restrictions would include requiring all non-electric motorized vehicles to be used only as a blind or platform from which to shoot, and prohibiting its use to flush or locate game. Under my proposal, these restrictions would not apply to electric motorized off-highway vehicles.

As an avid hunter, I find this issue to be of paramount importance. Hunters who are disabled cannot access to the same areas as non-disabled individuals. My legislation would seek to address this inequality.

If you have any questions, please contact Alycia Laureti via e-mail at [email protected] or via phone at 772-2283.

I'm always wary of Hanna. He has long been an advocate of ATV "Tourism".
I wonder who came up with this idea? The manufacturers of Electric ATV's, maybe?
It is very easy to sneak up on game with these carts. They make no noise.
