    I'd write the OP up if he killed or wounded the bear - if I as a WCO.

    The OP is overly concerned about a PA Black Bear charging his harvest. A yell and wave will chase it away.

    Unless of course, he is hunting in PA Grizz Country..

    the Grizzes that chase the PA Mountain Lions are vicious....

    I have a LTCF, and have used it to CC a semi-auto pistol while hunting. My question is: If I want to OC a revolver, and use it for hunting (not just self defense), does my LTCF cover me, or do I need that sportsman license?
    - May the forCZe be with you.

    Your LTCF covers you.

    Here's a question. If I'm carrying a rifle and a revolver during rifle season, can I only use the rifle to take game with? Or would I also be able to use the revolver? It is my interpretation that if you are carrying a long arm and a handgun, you can only use the handgun for self defense. I ask, because sometimes when I'm walking through the thick nasty stuff, I'll throw the rifle over my shoulder and unholster my revolver just in case I get a quick shot at something. Now the way I'm reading this makes that seem like it's a no-no. Can anyone clarify for me?

    Provided it's a wheel gun and is otherwise lawful for taking game during that particular season you are fine (ie centerfire, manually operated). The provision in the OP simply allows you carry a semi for protection without running afoul of game law.
