For the Pennsylvania Game Commission to Continue the Operation of Two Pheasant Farms

This petition had 263 supporters


The Pennsylvania Game Commission has announced plans to close two of their four pheasant farms. In the closing of the farms the Game Commission plans to save $1.5 million. It is understandable that they must restrict spending. However, they are closing both farms before attempting to solve the issue at hand. One possible solution could be a $25 pheasant permit which would be a reasonable attempt at solving the issue. We understand the financial pressure that the Game Commission is under but ask that solutions be executed before the closing of the farms. If a solution is executed after the farms are closed it will be a weak time for the propagation program that is currently popular. This popularity could concurrently decrease with the amount of pheasants to be stocked. The pheasant propagation program is a way that youth are introduced to hunting. The Game Commission provides a junior pheasant season that benefits youth around the state. This ensures and promotes future generations of hunting as well as future license sales. These closings will not only hurt the present and future hunters of Pennsylvania but they will also hurt the future and public image of the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
