CHANGE IN DEER ATTRACTANT PERMIT RULES MOVES FORWARD

Pennsylvania -(Ammoland.com)-The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today gave preliminary approval to a measure that would expand an existing permit that authorizes permitted baiting for deer as a method of control in the southeastern Pennsylvania special regulations area.

For the purpose of enhancing the harvest rate in an area of the state where deer populations are high, existing regulations provide an opportunity to private landowners within the southeast special regulations area to apply for a permit that allows hunting sites to be baited at consistent intervals through the use of electronic feeders.

The change approved preliminarily by the Board of Commissioners would a permit to be issued for use on municipal or township property, as well.

The measure will come back to the board in April for a final vote.
