APRIL COMMISSIONERS MEETING

Commissioners speak on CWD management

"Future generations of deer hunters are depending on us all," board says.

The Pennsylvania Board of Game
Commissioners at the April meeting
reaffirmed the agency's commitment to
battling Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)
in Pennsylvania.
The disease, which always is fatal
to the deer and elk it affects, has been
found in Pennsylvania in captive and freeranging deer, but the disease has not been
detected in most Pennsylvania counties.
On the board's behalf, Tim Layton,
the president of the Pennsylvania Board
of Game Commissioners, read into the
meeting minutes the following statement:
"The Game Commission is 100-percent
committed to putting into place measures
to manage CWD. We have heard from
the hunters and legislators in Blair and
Bedford counties over their opposition to
our efforts to control CWD in that region.
We took a step back to re-evaluate a better
path forward.
"We continue to work with local
hunters, communities and legislators to
evaluate new strategies to manage CWD.
"Later this month, Game Commission
scientists are meeting with numerous
colleagues from CWD-affected states to
evaluate new strategies to help us manage
CWD. We will be working with hunters,
communities, and legislators to get their
feedback on these new measures when
they are developed.
"The Game Commission will not
succeed in the battle against CWD alone.
If we are going to be successful, we will
need the support of hunters, communities
and the Legislature. Future generations
of deer hunters are depending on us all."

Other meeting highlights
* Trappers might soon have more direct
guidance on the types of snare locks that
can be used.
The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners in April preliminarily approved a
measure that would require snares used to
capture beaver and otters to be equipped
with approved locks, which already are required for cable restraints used to capture
foxes and coyotes.
As it is now, the law requires a snare be
equipped with "a mechanical sliding metal
release lock."
The change, which was recommended
by the Pennsylvania Trapper's Association,
is intended to expand the number and
types of locks available to trappers using
snares, and create consistency in the legal
lock requirements for cable restraints and
snares.
The change also allows for use of cage
or box traps for taking furbearers.
The measure will be brought back to
the July meeting for final consideration.
* The commissioners gave preliminary
approval to a measure that would permit
the state's elk hunters to use the 6.5 mm
Creedmoor round and related .26 caliber
firearms.
Existing regulations require elk hunters
to use firearms that are .27 caliber or more,
with bullets of at least 130 grains.
But after a review, the Game Commission has determined that increasingly
popular firearms in the .26 caliber range
provide adequate and commonly accepted
kinetic energies to efficiently and ethically
harvest elk.
The change would allow use of .26
caliber firearms with bullets of 120 grains
or more for elk hunting.
The measure will be brought back to
the July meeting for a final vote.
