I got this in an E-Mail from John Gibble and I think every hunter in pa. that hunts with a dog should see.

Folks: For the past 20 years, sporting dog owners have been meeting with
representatives of the Pennsylvania Game Commission, including Executive
Director Carl Roe, Deputy Executive Director Mike Schmidt; Chief, Bureau of
Law Enforcement, Jake Palmer, as well as several of the Game Commissions.

This year the meeting will be held on July 9 at the Game Commission
Headquarters, Auditorium. Any and all are welcome to attend. Usually the
meeting starts between 1:00 PM and 1:30 PM, once the Commissioners have
finished their regularly scheduled meeting.

Over the years we've worked out issues with rabbit trapping, use of
electronic collars, trespass, and inappropriate citation of hunters. Some
issues we may want to discuss include mentored youth program for rabbit
hunting; extending rabbit season until the end of February; updating the
running grounds permit and spelling out why we still get these.

Last year the meeting was not well publicized and we only have 7 people total
show up. We need to keep a good representation at these meetings to show PGC
we are a force to reckon with.

If anybody has any questions regarding the meeting, please call me at 717

John Gibble
