To: All Senate members

Subject: Maximum Sustained Yield

In the near future, I will introduce legislation to amend Title 34 (Game) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes to direct the focus of the Pennsylvania Game Commission back to fulfilling the duty of focusing primarily on serving the interest of the sportsmen and our special heritage of recreational hunting and furtaking.

This will be done by providing ample game and adequate opportunity to hunt and trap the wildlife resources of this Commonwealth. My legislation would ensure that the Pennsylvania Game Commission provide the following:

•Provide the maximum sustained yield of game for sport hunting and trapping, including white-tailed deer, as prescribed by the carrying capacity of the ecosystem to support and maintain respective populations of game.

•Enhance habitat toward increasing the carrying capacity of the ecosystem for the maximum sustained yield of game, including white tailed deer, and for optimizing densities of nongame species of birds and mammals.

Maximum sustained yield is defined as the management of game animals, including white-tailed deer, toward producing the maximum numbers of animals for consumptive use that can be sustained over time, and thus maximizing the recreational aspects of the harvest.;cosponId=12407

This guy is way out of his swimlane.
The good thing is that he is identifying himself as an extremist which should serve to help defreat all his bills.
