Youth Hunting Classes Could Expand

A bill allowing the Pennsylvania Game Commission to expand its Mentored Youth Hunting Program is awaiting Governor Tom Corbett’s approval. The legislation passed the General Assembly yesterday. The program began in 2006, aimed at creating more hunting opportunities for kids younger than 12, while maintaining safety. Local State Representative Jake Corman sponsored the bill. 

Representatives to Hold Open Forum
