HARRISBURG, PA – -( As part of its popular patch collection offerings, the Pennsylvania Game Commission has commissioned a new patch to promote the Mentored Youth Hunting Program.

The 4.5- by 3.5-inch patch is accompanied by a Saf-T Plug that acts as a visual cue that the action of any pump-action or semi-automatic shotgun is open and safe. The two items sell for $7, including sales tax, and can be obtained at any Game Commission office or through “The Outdoor Shop” on the agency’s website (

“The Mentored Youth Hunting Program has been a well-received approach for helping youth under the age of 12 to gain hunting experience and learn about the state’s rich hunting and trapping heritage,” said Carl G. Roe, Game Commission executive director. “This new patch and Saf-T Plug are a great way for an adult mentor to commemorate a youth’s participation in this program. So, take a youth hunting and present him or her with these items as souvenirs of your day afield together.”

To order online, go to the Game Commission’s website (, click on “The Outdoor Shop” icon in the right-hand column of the homepage, then choose “Pennsylvania Game Commission Outdoor Shop” in the lower left-hand corner of the page, select “Merchandise” in the banner, select “Patches” in the left-hand column and scroll down to “2009 Mentored Youth Patch & PGC Saf-T Plug.” Orders also can be made by calling 1-888-888-3459
