MEMORANDUM


Posted: February 22, 2013 01:45 PM


<span style="font-weight: bold">From: Representative Michael Hanna </span>


To: All House members


Subject: Legislation Amending the Duties of the Pennsylvania Game Commission and Providing for an Antlerless Deer Harvest Committee


In the near future, I will be introducing legislation designed to focus the mission of the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) on sportsmen, while also giving hunters more involvement in the management of whitetail deer.

As you may know, the PGC is responsible for managing game in the Commonwealth. Within the last decade, the PGC has changed their deer management strategy. <span style="text-decoration: underline">This change has demonstrated that the PGC is not considering the needs of sportsmen.</span> <span style="font-weight: bold">As such, the legislation that I will be introducing would amend the duties of the PGC to focus primarily on serving the interests of sportsmen, including maximizing the sustainable yield of the whitetail deer herd.</span>

<span style="font-weight: bold">This legislation would also establish an Antlerless Deer Harvest Committee.</span> Currently, the PGC determines antlerless deer allocations with minimal public involvement. <span style="font-weight: bold">Under this legislation, an Antlerless Deer Harvest Committee would review the information and calculations and accept the recommendations or propose their own allocations. The decision of the committee would be binding on the PGC.</span>

Since sportsmen are the primary means used by the PGC to manage game, I believe it is imperative that we ensure that the PGC is serving the interests of our sportsmen and providing for their involvement in the management of our wildlife resources.

If you have any questions, please contact Alycia Laureti via e-mail at [email protected] or via phone at 2-2283.

Well we know that Hanna continues to be Unified boy wonder on the hill.

Everything failed in the lawsuit is coming out this week via this rep and one or two others.


The failed organization teams with failed legislators!


One would think that after the house just spent 90K on a study on the deer program DEMANDED BY UNIFIED, and a failed court case THAT FAILED IN SAYING AND DOING WHAT THIS PENDING BILL SEEKS, that a legislator would be wary of said group.. and friends.

But alas, more deer for the sake of more deer - gets you bills like this. Add the senior exception to A R's and baiting. All Unified long term initiatives... and everyone files in the face of having more deer.
