I think most don’t understand what needs to be done. The state law needs a small revision in order for the Game Commission to ok us to use this equipment.

I spoke to Rep. Wentling about a week ago. This process is so frustrating for those of us waiting for this law to be changed. I asked him to move forward and get this in the form of a bill once again.

Don’t expect changes anytime soon !

..hopefully time doesn't run out this go round. It made good progress in the few months it had last session.

Had a chance to hunt NY in March with thermal....what a game changer.

The 20 step process we have to give the PA Game Commision control of things is a bit ridiculous. Maybe if it is put in money for the state aspect .. IE "state sales tax" . They would put it through faster...One $5000 thermal brings $300 in state sales tax here..that's a decent amount of Dunder Mifflin Paper Products..

Now that HB1188 has been approved by the House it will go to the Senate and will go through the same steps there. Upon approval it will go to the Governor.

Update : This bill has stalled since it went to the Senate back in June. Doubt there is any action this year. I have sent Senator Dan Laughlin 2 emails so far trying to get this moving. This means the Game Commission will not see this next spring for any rule changes for 2020 !!!
