Senate Approves Corman Measure to Expand Mentored Hunting to All Ages

HARRISBURG – The Senate has unanimously approved legislation sponsored by  Sen. Jake Corman (R-34), which would authorize the Pennsylvania Game  Commission to expand its successful Mentored Youth Hunting Program to all  ages.

“The mentored youth hunting program has been so successful that it has become  a model for other states,” said Corman.  “This legislation aims to make the  successful youth program available for anyone to participate with the same goal  to nurture interest and gain a better understanding of hunting and wildlife  conservation.”

In 2006, the Game Commission launched the Mentored Youth Hunting Program,  through legislative authority, with the stated goal to expand hunting  opportunities for individuals under age 12 while maintaining safety afield.   Senate Bill 623 expands this voluntary opportunity to all ages.

The legislation does not alter any normal licensing procedures.
