The latest reports are out from the sale of hunting licenses in Pennsylvania and indications are the numbers still remain lower than last year at the same time. Last month officials announced that sales were lagging but attributed it to a change in dates in which licenses became available. They said the next month would give a better indication.

There is a festering in the relationship between hunters and wildlife officials in how deer are being managed there. Many hunters think the Game Commissions methods are reducing the deer numbers to a level that makes hunting not enjoyble. These same groups have said that if the state continues on this path, hunters will stop buying licenses.

Although the early archery season begins soon, officials are still optimistic that sales will rebound before the regular gun season.
