Committee to Review Legislation on Deer Management 


 
In light of the long-standing controversy over the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s deer management program, lawmakers have introduced a half dozen bills related to the program and the commission’s deer hunting policies.

The House Game and Fisheries Committee, which I chair, will hear testimony on those bills from the Game Commission and the state’s two major sportsman organizations at a public hearing on Wednesday, March 19, at 9 a.m. at the state Capitol.

The bills to be discussed include:
 
 • House Bill 870 – Excludes public land from the Deer Management Assistance Program.  
 • House Bill 1146 – Removes antler restrictions for senior hunters.  
 • House Bill 1370 – Establishes a separate three-day antlerless deer season following the regular rifle antlered deer season.  
 • House Bill 1724 – Designates wildlife management units and issuance of antlerless deer permits on a county basis.  
 • House Bill 1726 – Directs the Pennsylvania Game Commission to use the maximum sustained yield method of game and habitat management.  
 • House Resolution 576 – Urges the Pennsylvania Game Commission to study the possibility of starting the rifle deer season on a Saturday.
 
Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Matt Hough will testify first at 9:15 a.m., followed by Randy Santucci of the Unified Sportsmen of Pennsylvania at 9:45 a.m. and Melody Schell of the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs at 10:15 a.m. The hearing must conclude by 11 a.m. due to scheduled House voting session.

The hearing will be streamed live at RepCauser.com.
  

Maple Producers Week in PA!

The state House approved my resolution this week designating March 16-23 as Maple Producers Week in Pennsylvania.

Our state ranks fifth nationally in maple syrup production. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in 2013 the state produced 134,000 gallons of syrup from 583,000 taps. Maple sap is also used to make butter, candies, caramels, taffy, cotton candy and more.

In celebration of the maple industry, the Potter-Tioga Maple Syrup Producers Association will hold its 10th Annual Maple Weekend on March 22-23. For more information about activities and participating producers, visit pamaple.com/MapleWeekend.htm

When do they vote on a bill that restricts legislators from having any say in wildlife management? Not sure why these clowns think they know better than biologists what's best for the states wildlife. Oh, yeah, pandering for votes. How about Causer introduces a bill to limit the number of terms senators and representatives can serve the same as he did with members of Game Commissions Board of Commissioners. These legislators are disgusting!

Causer needs to do something about the undue environ-crazy influence that has been dictating deer management for far too long.

Why is Schell speaking on this? And environmentalist that live in Alabama for years now. Whats up with that?

I support all of the above except the goofy Saturday first day bill, which is definitely not needed or wanted. And with the others in place, wont need the senior exemption from antler restrictions either. The rest are BADLY needed.
