HUNTING INFORMATION:


MAJOR ISSUES ON ALL TERRAIN VEHICLES (ATVs) and HUNTING in Pennsylvania:

  1. Should hunters utilizing off-highway vehicles for scouting, hunting, or retrieval be allowed to travel off of existing routes of travel?
  2. Hunters on ATVs ride illegally on non-motorized single-track trails and on motorized trails designated for motorcycles only?
  3. Hunters riding ATVs trespass into areas and trails closed to motorized vehicles?
  4. Hunters utilizing ATVs travel cross-country?
  5. Do hunters utilizing ATVs show poor ethics; sportsmanship, fair chase or respect for resources?
  6. Hunters utilizing ATVs travel off of existing routes to retrieve game and drag rather than carry out their game?
  7. Hunters on ATVs displace wildlife?
  8. Hunters on ATVs spread noxious weeds.
  9. Inappropriate use of ATVs/ATVs for hunting is encouraged by media advertising.
  10. Hunters on ATVs chase wildlife.
  11. Hunters on ATVs diminish the traditional hunting experience.
  12. Hunters on ATVs have an unfair access and retrieval advantage over hunters not using ATVs.
  13. Hunting with ATVs causes noise, air, and water pollution.
  14. Hunting with ATVs causes damage to wet areas and wetlands, and during adverse conditions.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP?
  • Significantly reduce illegal use of ATVs used during the hunting season.
  • Incorporate an ATV ethics message in our by-laws and to state Hunter Education Programs.
  • Develop a set of ethics awareness tools that are available for agencies and private organizations (brochures, posters, fliers, website, etc.)
