It’s unlawful to hunt with electronic devices unless they’re permitted by exception.

The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today gave preliminary approval to a measure that would make three additional electronic devices lawful to use while hunting.

If the measure is adopted, hunters would be able to use electronic decoys in hunting waterfowl; electronically heated scent or lure dispensers; and electronic devices that distribute ozone gas for scent-control purposes.

The measure is scheduled to be brought back to the September meeting for a final vote. The board indicated it will consider adding electronic mourning-dove decoys to the list when it’s brought up for a final vote.

Electronic devices generally are prohibited for hunting use in Pennsylvania, but the Game Commission over the years has received requests to review several specific electronic devices, and has approved some of them for hunting use. As part of the review process, the Game Commission evaluates to what degree a given device might negatively impact the principles of resource conservation, equal opportunity, fair chase and public safety.

In reviewing the devices that today were preliminarily approved for hunting use, the Game Commission identified no negative impacts that would result from their use.

Other electronic devices that are permitted for use while hunting or trapping in Pennsylvania are:

· Firearms that use an electronic impulse to initiate discharge of their ammunition

· Electronic sound-amplification devices incorporated into hearing protection devices and completely contained within the hunters’ ear

· Electronic devices used for locating dogs while training and hunting

· Electronic illuminating devices affixed to the aft end of a bolt or arrow and used solely for locating or tracking a bolt or arrow after it is launched

· Electronic crow decoys used solely for hunting crows

· Electronic rangefinders, including handheld devices and those contained within a scope or archery sight, so long that it does not emit a beam

why not just have open season year- round and when the animals are all killed off we can get rid of the Game Commission and save money.
I mean, it seems as though they want to get rid of all the animals. If all the electronic crap is allowed, then there isn't much sport in it is there. Have we all gotten so lazy that we can't hunt and at least give the animals a fighting chance?

They have to try to do something to get people interested in hunting since the deer population is down. But if people are dumb enough to buy and use ozone gas or electric scent dispenser let them

The game commission should have a "throwback" year where all anyone can hunt with is flintlocks and conventional recurve bows....

12:37, to answer your question, yes, we are lazy. Hop in your ATV, ride the roads or go sit in your stand, wait for the deer to leave the food plot.

And who hunts crows? Why? They eat carrion and lots or harmful crop insects. Makes no sense.

How about throwing back to clubs and rocks.

Open Sunday for deer rifle season only, leave it closed the rest of the year.
