    Good for some, not so good for others.

    Possibly primarily the “deer camp” group. It would be a shame to choke to death. Personally, I could care less. I’m retired and have hunted the same farm since 1969.

    It is the opinion of many that opening day is the best chance of getting a buck. It has seemed that way to me since 1969.

    So much angst for such a simple decision.

    The game commission gave preliminary approval in January, and on Tuesday made it official.

    The opening day of rifle deer season moves from the Monday after Thanksgiving to the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The vote was 5-3.

    Those who supported the change believe it will entice more people to hunt. It will help hunters who can't get the first Monday after Thanksgiving off from work or school.

    Opponents cited tradition and crowded highways on the weekend after Thanksgiving.

    Rifle deer season has started on the Monday after Thanksgiving since 1963.

    The change takes effect this year. The season will open on November 30, 2019.
    It's about time.

    I do think they should wait until next year however, so people can plan ahead.

    Now the hunters won't be able to turn a four-day weekend into a five-day weekend. And those businesses that effectively shut down for the first day of Buck Season won't be so negatively impacted.

    100% in favor of this decision. Glad the PA Game Commision made this change. Now it is time for the PA Senate and House of Reps to remove the prohibition on SUnday Hunting. EVERYONE lets get behind Senate Bill #147. Call Your PA Legislators and tell them you want SUnday Hunting.
