They are going to go from a Executive Order on Feral swine to a formal regulation. From the discussion, it appears a wild boar will become illegal in the state.


In other words - this regulation has the potential to end canned hog hunts in PA.

Discussion is back and forth, but a lot of factors are coming into play including a Supreme Court decision they are responding to.


Look for the agenda to be published for full text and details.

1:45 a commissioner asks about a report of an injured deer being reported and no one responding. The current policy was presented.


An effort this year will be made by the GC to make the legislative change to allow individuals to dispatch deer with approval from the GC.

It requires a law change via the PA General Assembly.

Fur ron, don't waste your time.

I watched part of the stream, and couldn't stomach watching the whole thing. They are pushing for state-wide concurrent slaughter season.

Another deer debacle, one commissioner brought up addressing hunter complaints and few deer and he basically got talked down to by two over bearing loud-mouth types. They then proceeded to tell him as loudly and forcefully as they could, that nothing could be done, hunters need to quit hunting on the same rocks blah blah blah! What a joke!

That was enough for me.

Nothing but more of the same.

Keystone - that was in about the 1 hour mark of part three.

Didn't hear any yelling, but lots of discussion. Yes - the "rock" used yearly for a stand was mentioned as were a whole lot of other reasons for hot and cold spots.

The question was by Commissioner Fox who is a new commissioner and this was his first meeting. Being a working meeting where topics are discussed - the other commissioners relayed their experiences with the topic and where they were and what has been tried or proposed in the past.

Remember, to move forward, you have to look at history. Positive forward progress is a result of knowing limitations and abilities to accomplish the goal. This is what was being discussed.

Sorry you felt ill. But for the other people that want to understand why things happen and the whys and hows - these video's are very interesting even if you don't agree.

The first step to making a change is to have accurate information on what the problem actually is. These meetings, the actual words and proposals form that basis. Taken in the context they are presented and exchanges, there is a wealth of real, honest understanding to be had. Even if that understanding is used to oppose or change the direction.

It wasn't an hour watching for me. I fast forwarded to the deer parts.

I find it disturbing that people who hold so much power over our resource and hunting in this state would hold such a poor condescending view of hunters here and to scoff at finding REAL solutions to our REAL problems.
