APPEARS IN Hunting

Your Help is Needed to Expand Hunting Opportunities in the Keystone State!

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

Please Contact the Pennsylvania Game Commission Today!

Over the last several years, there has been a growing debate concerning the use of crossbows in Pennsylvania.  On Tuesday, January 27, the Pennsylvania Game Commission will be voting on a proposal that would make Pennsylvania the twelfth state to allow the use of crossbows during the state archery season.  

The Commission will take public remarks on Sunday, January 25 at 1:00 p.m.  The doors will open at noon and you must register at that time to speak at the hearing.  The Commission will again take public remarks on Monday, January 26 at 8:30 a.m.  The doors will open at 7:45 a.m. and, again, you must sign up to voice your opinion. To view a copy of the agenda, please click

NRA strongly advocates for any expansion of hunter opportunity and choice when there is no biological reason to oppose the expansion.  In fact, states that have allowed the use of crossbows have been able to maintain healthy wildlife populations.  Additionally, the recruitment and retention of hunters has improved by removing crossbow restrictions.  At a time when the number of hunters is declining, nothing is more important than the ongoing effort to preserve and strengthen our hunting heritage.  To read NRA’s letter to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, please click

The Pennsylvania Game Commission has received input on both sides of the issue from stakeholders concerning this proposed change.  It’s time the Pennsylvania Game Commission hear from the very sportsmen and hunters they represent.  There is little doubt that non-hunters and animal “rights” forces will be active in making their voices heard, so it is vital that sportsmen speak loudly.

Your calls are working, so please continue contacting the members of the Pennsylvania Game  Commission and respectfully ask that they act to preserve our cherished hunting heritage by voting for the inclusion of crossbows during the state archery season.  Contact information for the Game Commission can be found below.
