Action alert on HB2011 regarding Pre-Emption

Rep Mike Turzai has committed to move HB 2011. This bill strengthens pre-emption by providing for standing and compensation of expenses in the event a local law needs to be challenged that conflicts with State gun laws. Corbett said he will sign if it is put on his desk in the remaining 11 days left to the legislative session.

Default 2013-14 Doe license

Just a reminder to all the hunters out there:

-- The first round of doe license applications will begin to be accepted by County Treasurers this coming Monday (7/8/12).


I just got back from placing my application in the mailbox with a 2pm pickup. It should be at the Allegheny County Courthouse first thing Monday morning.

Best of luck to all my fellow hunters!

My 1st application is always for 2C, out where I grew up. Licenses always sellout there and this year the total has been lowered to 43k, so I really wanted to make sure I got mine in asap. Normally I'll mail it Sunday or Monday also.

After the 1st round of applications, I then apply for my 2B license. 2B never sells out and you can buy as many as you can afford. No time frame management for WMU 2B.

Are those of you getting 2B licenses doing archery or shotgun slugs? Or perhaps avoiding Allegheny Co. altogether since some of 2B is outside of it? I've been thinking about doing slugs in 2B and getting the requisite permit in the second round, but I can't decide if I want to spent the $$ on the necessary sight upgrade on my shotgun.

I was awarded my doe license for the application placed in the mail on Saturday.

The turnaround this year in being awarded the license was very fast (). In prior years it would take a week or so to post online for me.

Here's the link if you'd like to check the status of your doe (or elk) application:

I normally would hunt archery (2B), regular season firearms (2C) then late season firearms (2B-Southern Butler County). But unfortunately the late season firearms season has been limited to ONLY Allegheny County starting this season....DAMN!

My solution to the above:
Buy and use a Savage 220 in Allegheny County.

Savage 220 = highly regarded bolt action 20 gauge that with the proper sabot will shoot very accurately out to 150-200 yards. Its basically a rifled-barrel slug gun that performs in many ways like a rifle and is completely legal in 2B.

Mine went out for 4c Saturday. I don't expect any issues getting one the first round. I would like one for the second round though. I've got a lot of hunting planned for this year.
