Pennsylvania could soon allow its hunters to do something that hunters in 27 other states already can do: Use dogs to help find and recover white-tailed deer.
House Bill 451 would amend the Pennsylvania Game Code to allow hunters who have legally killed or wounded a white-tailed deer to use leashed blood-tracking dogs to track the deer and help hunters recover the animal. The rule would also apply to tracking wounded or dead bears.
“Our board of commissioners, two to three years ago passed a resolution supporting the use of blood tracking dogs in deer and bear hunting,” Pennsylvania Game Commission press secretary Travis Lau said. “The bill that is now before the Senate Game and Fisheries committee is in that framework of what our board has put on paper they would support.”
