PA: Firearms deer hunting seasons begins Nov. 30

The firearms deer hunting season begins today in Pennsylvania. The Game Commission says the 12-day season is expected to bring out 750,000 hunters. State officials say one very important regulation that applies statewide is the requirement for all hunters to wear a minimum of 250 square inches of fluorescent orange material on their head, chest and back combined. An orange hat and vest will satisfy the requirement. And for safety’s sake, it’s a good idea for nonhunters who might be afield during the deer season to consider wearing orange as well. Safety first.
