Governor Wolf to Permit Hunting with Leashed Tracking Dogs

Yesterday, Governor Wolf brought Pennsylvania hunting into the 21st Century by permitting the use of leashed tracking dogs – which is permitted by 35 other states – by enacting SB 135.

SB 135 amends Section 2383 of the Pennsylvania Game Code by permitting an individual to:

Make use of a leashed tracking dog to track a white-tailed deer, bear or elk in an attempt to recover an animal which has been legally killed or wounded during any open season for white-tailed deer, bear or elk.

Please join us in thanking Governor Wolf for allowing law-abiding hunters to use dogs to track a wounded or harvested animal that may have traveled some distance, especially in areas of varied terrain or during poor weather conditions.

If you or someone you know has been charged with a game violation, contact Firearms Industry Consulting Group today to discuss YOUR rights and legal options.
