January 2006 PGC Agenda
- PGC’s Staff’s position not endorsing the use of atlatl for deer hunting.
- Rifle Deer season remains the same; basically continuing the “if it is brown, it’s down” mentality.
- Several land acquisitions.
- A second Spring Gobbler tag–at an additional cost (there’s a surprise).
- Expanding the definition of deer season to include non-shooting hours and non-hunting days (Sundays), so folks using spotlights during that entire time can be convicted, drawn, and quartered.
Noticeably absent–not one word about Sunday hunting. This topic is of great interest to the hunters and the taxpayers, as the revenue generated by Sunday hunting has been estimated to exceed $18 Million. My guess is that is just a drop in the bucket. Nor is there any word of saving taxpayers any money by merging this agency with Fish & Boat and DNCR. I guess the PGC is doing a fine job solo; why make any changes.
Of interest to those unable or not interested in sitting through three days of meetings,
a copy of the January meeting minutes will be posted on the website as soon as they are transcribed, which generally takes between two to three weeks.
“Posting the minutes on the website allows us to cut the costs of printing and mailing copies of this document, which averages around 140 double-sided pages, and reach a wider audience,” Roe said. “It’s a cost-savings move that makes Game Commission actions and decisions more accessible to the public.”
