|Subject:||Legislation Providing for Sunday Hunting for Participants of the Mentored Youth Hunting Program|
|In the near future, I will be introducing legislation that would authorize the Pennsylvania Game Commission to provide for two annual days of Sunday hunting for participants of the Mentored Youth Hunting Program. Participants would be able to hunt on two Sundays during each of the following seasons: the antlered and antlerless deer rifle seasons, as well as the spring and fall turkey seasons.
Increasingly busy work schedules, as well as other obligations, may limit participation in the Mentored Youth Hunting Program. However, providing youths and mentors with two additional weekend hunting opportunities could increase the number of participants going into the field and further add to a positive hunting experience.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission has not taken an official position on this issue.
Introduced as HB2311
