Why do I get lumped in with those old coots?

Right off hand I can remember two years.One year there was a three foot snowstorm in Clearfield possibly 93 or 94?
Another year I think was before that when ice storms fell during two of the three day season.
Possibly another one back in the early 80's or maybe even 70's when I was hunting Potter but can't say for sure.I do know one thing,people raised h$ll whenever it was extended.

Didn't find any mention of it in here.I won't argue the point because I'm not 100% sure except for one year that it was extended.I 'll never forget that one.I know there was talk other years about extending it but now I'm curious.

That is precisely why they went to the concurrent seasons,because they didn't need the approval of the legislature to make that change.

Not quite. the history on the website, is simply a synopsis and not very comprehensive. BTW Many parts of the website are currently not working since the new revisions were put in place.

In the meantime, here are a few links that show that title 34 provides for extensions. These are more recent that I spoke of but they do explicitly say that extensions of the antlerless seasons are provided for.

Oh and you might want to read page 6 on this one. 1990 was one of those years where the season was extended. It wasnt always statewide. It was county by county. Perhaps it didnt happens as often in your area.

No, I do not remember the year, but somewhere in my stack of stuff I have the PGN article that states the PGC does not have the authority to extend the seasons once they are set in April. the obvious reason for this is the PGC has no idea what the harvest might be until they calculate the harvest based on the report cards.

I know it happened in 1990 for most if not all of the state and it also happened around 1976 or 77 in Forest County for sure. I remember having to miss the early part of that week for college exams and was thrilled to get the chance to go out on Saturday.

Those years you mentioned also ring a bell Rich. I'm not sure but I think 93 and 94 were northern tier counties only.

That is simply pure nonsense. the season was not extended in 1990 since the harvest that year was a new record high of 245K with only 806K tags. If you are going to make up stories please check the harvest data first ,so you won't look like a fool.

You really should check that last link that I posted. Thats where the information came from. Page 6 refers to the 1990 extension.

The PGC can extend the 3-day AL deer harvest
season if the AL deer harvest is deemed inadequate, and there was a
1-day extension in 1990.
Was the personal attack necessary? The fact that you are mistaken on these extensions or simply dont recall is no excuse for attempting to start another flame war. Please check your fatcs.

I too recall several times in my youth that the 2 day or 3 day season was extended.

One vividly recall it pouring rain for the two days we hunted.
