Electronic devices now lawful for hunting

Four electronic devices received final approval by the Pennsylvania Game Commission board of commissioners for use while hunting now may be used afield. Within established seasons, hunters now may use electronic decoys in hunting waterfowl, electronic dove decoys solely for hunting doves, electronically heated scent or lure dispensers and electronic devices that distribute ozone gas for scent-control purposes.

Although approved in September, the regulatory changes could not become law until they were published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Electronic devices generally are prohibited for hunting use in Pennsylvania, but the PGC over the years has received requests to review several specific electronic devices and has approved some of them for hunting use.

As part of the review process, the PGC evaluates to what degree a given device might negatively impact the principles of resource conservation, equal opportunity, fair chase and public safety. No negative impacts were identified that would result from their use in reviewing the devices that recently were approved for hunting use.

Other electronic devices that are permitted for use while hunting or trapping in Pennsylvania are: Firearms that use an electronic impulse to initiate discharge of their ammunition; electronic sound-amplification devices incorporated into hearing protection devices and completely contained in or on a hunter’s ear; electronic devices used for locating dogs while training and hunting; electronic illuminating devices affixed to the aft end of a bolt or arrow and used solely for locating or tracking a bolt or arrow after it is launched; electronic crow decoys used solely for hunting crows; electronic rangefinders, including handheld devices and those contained within a scope or archery sight, so long that it does not emit a beam.
