Game Commission Makes Changes In Tight Budget

HARRISBURG PA – “Changes are in store for Pennsylvania hunters taking to the state’s 1.5 million acres of game lands this season, including new and canceled programs offered by the state Game Commission,” The Associated Press reported Saturday (Sept. 10, 2016).

Megan Trimble of The AP wrote that “a tight budget has the Game Commission monitoring its spending. It is considering an increase in hunting and fur-taker license fees. And it has canceled its autumn driving tours because of financial constraints.”

“The tours, which have provided the public an opportunity to interact with Game Commission personnel directly responsible for managing and protecting game lands, have proven popular. Some tours regularly attract thousands of people each year,” a commission press release added.
