Re:Turkey gun question
In related action, the Board gave final approval to remove the sporting arm limitations for fall turkey season in WMUs 1A, 1B and 2A, which presently requires the use of shotguns, crossbows or bows. While this move allows fall turkey hunters to choose to use rifles in these three WMUs, the use of rifles in Allegheny County, which is a designated Special Regulations Area county, will continue to be prohibited.
With the expanded use of rifles for fall turkey seasons in WMUs 1A, 1B and 2A, the Board gave preliminary approval to a change in regulations governing the mandatory wearing of fluorescent orange to be consistent with the present orange requirements for WMUs in which rifles may be used for fall turkey hunting. Specifically, fall turkey hunters in these three WMUs now will be required to wear a hat containing a minimum of 100 square inches of orange while moving or relocating and to post an orange band within 15 feet of their stationary hunting location.
Curiosity killed the cat, but for awhile I was a suspect.
