Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Default Private Property Hunting

Where can I find laws relating to hunting private property?

Specifically I'm trying to find out if you own hunting land, are you permitted to take more than just your annual buck?

The laws for hunting private property, yours or anyone else's are the same as hunting State Game Land or other public property.

Farmers and the like can do the whole red tag thing, but that's outside of your question, IMO.

That's a shame. Anyone know if that is different in VA?

What's red tag? Is that the extra tags to prevent crop damage?

I'm not sure about VA. But in PA, game laws apply statewide regardless of who owns the land. You can only take what you have tags & licenses to take.

"Red Tags" are now DMAP tags for crop and forest damage. Landowners(link) and other state agencies(link) apply for them, then they can distribute them to hunters(or keep them for themselves).

If I read that right, a landowner that has uncultivated land can get 1 coupon per 50 acres of land.

So if I own 100 acres of uncultivated land I could possibly take my regular buck plus 2 more DMAP bucks?

It's a shame the state protects game resources?

While game inhabits private property, it is not part of the private property. It is a state controlled resource. Just like a stream. If it's on /through your private property, you can control access to it but you can't divert it to consume yourself 100%, or pollute it with your used motor oil.

Some (few) states have more exceptions than others, in regards to landowner exceptions or preferences, but I know of none that do not control game on private property.

If you qualify and they approve the tags, yes.

No... I agree with protecting resources and I understand your point.

I'm considering purchasing some land and I want to know what I can and can't do. Having the ability to harvest a second buck would be a great thing IMO.

Just trying to do some research.

Does taste the same as bucks. And with the depletion of bucks, you're very likely to find does as big as bucks - like they are around here.

DMAP tags are for antlerless ONLY. Red Tag is a different program and is antlerless ONLY.

The short answer is in Pa. you get ONE and ONLY ONE buck each year.

Does taste better than bucks, Sir. I'm no trophy hunter. Unless you considering a filled freezer a trophy.
