Game Commission Plans Deer Management Open Houses

Frye, Bob, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Around the Game Commission

* The Game Commission is going to try again to explain its deer management program to sportsmen.

The commission has announced plans to hold a second round of deer management open houses around the state. A first round was held in October, to light crowds locally.

Open houses will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays in each region.

In the southwest, an open houses is set for March 15 at the commission's southwest region office on Route 711 in Bolivar. In the northwest, the open house will be held March 29 at the Red Fern Inn in St. Marys.

* Hunters who had a deer management assistance program, or DMAP, coupon for the 200708 hunting seasons have until today to file a report card.

Cards are required whether or not you took a deer with a DMAP tag. Reports can be filed online at Click on the DMAP icon in the middle of the page.

In the recent past, many hunters have been lax about filing a report. In 2006-07, for example, the commission issued 28,432 DMAP coupons. More than 6,100 of those people never bothered to say whether they killed a deer with it.

* The spring gobbler season is likely going to be a lot less orange this year.

At their most recent meeting, Game Commissioners gave final approval to a proposal eliminating the mandatory requirement that hunters wear 100 square inches of orange on the head while moving during the season. The move was initiated and supported by the National Wild Turkey Federation.

The new regulation goes into effect in time for the 2008 season.

Around the Fish & Boat Commission

* The Fish and Boat Commission and Department of Environmental Protection have updated the state's fish consumption advisory.

All recreationally caught sport fish in Pennsylvania are subject to a one-meal-per-week consumption advisory.
