Historic Wins for Pennsylvania Hunters


The Pennsylvania Game Commission has approved a historic land purchase worth $5.7 million to create opportunities for the state's hunters.

At 9,300 acres, this is the largest single addition to state game lands in the history of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Funds from the sale of hunting licenses and receipts from energy leases on commission properties made this purchase possible.

NWTF volunteers from the Pennsylvania State Chapter were active in the grassroots movement, encouraging Pennsylvania Game Commission staff and members of the game commission to approve both land purchases.

Experts will manage the land for wildlife. Once the purchase is complete, the addition will be permanently open to hunting.

Located in central Pennsylvania's Clearfield County, the property provides quality habitat for species including white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, black bears, ruffed grouse, American woodcock and cottontail rabbits.

The game commission also approved the purchase of a 172-acre addition to State Game Lands 217 in eastern Pennsylvania's Carbon County.
