Game Commission gutted deer season

I have been a licensed Pennsylvania hunter for 38 years.

I feel that makes me a stockholder in the Pennsylvania Game Commission organization, and it definitely makes me a customer.

I have been a small business owner for 17 years and a member of a Pennsylvania hunting camp for 30 years.

I have to say that the Game Commission gutted so much deer season tradition and waylaid oh so many small town businesses last year that it makes me sick.

Here are some documented numbers; facts like 65% of hunters surveyed and 81% of those commenting jump off the page at me:

— The lost days of sales at my small business hurt, and I can’t make them up anywhere.

— But if I ignored 65-81% of my customers and what they wanted, I would not have a business at all.

— Back to Monday: Put the Sunday in the middle or at the end if you must, and please don’t further foul up bear camp with a Sunday.

— Give a long weekend to spring gobbler hunters or kids, perhaps?
