You are telling me that in Pennsylvania, after I shoot a deer, I cant get my tractor and drag that deer out of the woods? Are you serious?
I'm not as familiar with the current hunting regs as I once was but that definitely was the case at one point. You could only use motorized assistance if you were handicapped.
I poked around on the PA game commission website this morning and found this in the game code. Sounds like it hasn't changed.
"Sec. 2308. Unlawful devices and methods.
(a) General rule.--Except as otherwise provided in this title, it is unlawful for any person to hunt or aid, abet, assist or conspire to hunt any game or wildlife through the use of:
...(7) A vehicle or conveyance of any kind or its attachment propelled by other than manpower. Nothing in this subsection shall pertain to any motorboat or sailboat if the motor has been completely shut off or sail furled, and the progress thereof has ceased.
This is from the ATV policy:
"The operation of ATVs on State Game Lands and other properties open to public hunting remains a violation of the law and continues to be aggressively
enforced by our wildlife conservation officers and their deputy WCOs. We view this as no different than the illegal use of automobiles, trucks and SUVs on these properties."
