Senate Passes Alloway Mentored Youth Hunting Legislation

Senate Passes Alloway Mentored Youth Hunting Legislation
 
HARRISBURG – The Senate approved legislation Wednesday that would create a mentored youth hunting program for young Pennsylvania sportsmen, according to the bill’s sponsor Senator Richard Alloway II (R-33).
 
Senate Bill 1272 would allow the Pennsylvania Game Commission to enact regulations pertaining to a mentored youth hunting program. The program would allow a licensed hunter with an antlered deer permit to give the permit to a young hunter who is participating in a mentored youth hunting program.
 
Young hunters would be limited to one antlered deer license in each license year.
 
“Hunting is a tradition for many families in Pennsylvania, and it is important to help the next generation of hunters to learn how to hunt safely and responsibly from experienced adult hunters,” said Alloway, who chairs the Senate Game and Fisheries Committee. “This program will make it easier for adult hunters to share their knowledge and experience with young sportsmen.” 
 
The legislation would also reduce the age requirement for an individual to receive a falconry permit from 16 to 12 years of age. 
 
Senate Bill 1272 was sent to the House of Representatives for consideration.
