Outdoor Skills – Hunting Q&A

Are you allowed to hunt with high-power pellet guns in Pennsylvania? (P.S. Your magazine has taught me a lot in the past years, not only just how to respect the outdoors, but to respect life and other people, so I just want to say thank you.) --M.D.E., age 12

I’m glad you’re gaining so much from the magazine! I don’t know if Pennsylvania allows hunting with pellet guns. The best source for this information would be the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Why don’t you try their Web site (www.pgc.state.pa.us)? Anybody else out there looking for hunting regulations should try their state’s or province’s Web site. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has a page with links to state fish and game agencies at http://offices.fws.gov/statelinks.html/. Another handy reference for these is the Petersen’s Hunting Annual, available for $6.99 on most magazine racks.
