BOARD OF GAME COMMISSIONERS TO MEET ON OCT. 6-7 IN HARRISBURG
The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners will meet on Oct. 6-7, in the agency's Harrisburg headquarters, 2001 Elmerton Ave., just off the Progress Avenue exit of Interstate 81. The Board will begin its meetings at 8:30 a.m. on both days.
On Oct. 6, the Board will accept public comments and receive reports from various agency bureaus and regions.
On Oct. 7, the Board will consider taking action on several agenda items, including consideration of changes to fluorescent orange regulations for 2004-2005.
"We have received significant input on this proposal, which is what the Board of Game Commissioners and the agency wanted," said Vern Ross, Game Commission executive director. "On behalf of the Board, I want to thank those hunters who took the time to contact the agency and share their views."
Another measure that is scheduled for final consideration would prohibit the release of any captive-held or captive-bred game or wildlife into the wild. The proposed regulation was presented as a means to prevent the spread of animal-borne diseases, and to protect Pennsylvania's native wildlife and habitats. The proposed regulation includes an exception for lawfully acquired mallard ducks, ringneck pheasants, bobwhite quail and chukar partridge for dog training or hunting purposes.
