Hunting Property Western PA
Owning your own hunting land can grealty aid in bagging the limit of game animals.
According to a spokesman from the Pennsylvania Game Commission Southjwest Region, there are advantages to hunting your own land.
“The benefit is that you control the property and have a place to hunt without worrying about someone being in your chosen spot, overcrowding, etc. If someone comes onto your property without your permission, you can contact the police and have them cited for trespassing.

“You still need to have a hunting license even if you own the land. You must also follow all hunting laws and seasons and bag limits,” the spokeman said.
The government regulates and keeps watch over hunting in Pennsylvania. The state sells licenses, sets limits on the number of animals that can be taken, offers rules for firearm use, among many other rules.

“The first rule you have to follow when hunting, even on your own land, is the hunting season,” said Neal Litherland, an eHow contributor.
“For instance, if the hunting season is currently rabbit season, you can't just go around killing deer even if it's on your own property. There is a certain time animals should be hunted, and that time is set so that the animals don't overproduce. Hunting season laws stretch across all properties, public and private,” he said.

“In public hunting areas and parks, there is usually an established bag limit, setting how many of a given type of animal a hunter can kill in a given time frame. Usually, the limits are listed by the day,” Litherland said.
“On private property, any limits are set by the landowner. The purpose of a bag limit is to keep an area from being entirely depopulated, more of a concern of the public areas than the private ones,” he added.
Litherland also advised, “The most important rule regarding hunting on private property is the owner must give permission. For instance, if you are the owner of the property, then you can simply choose to hunt, no questions asked. Others, even those who live on the property but who are not property owners (relatives or renters, for example), must get permission of the owner in order to hunt. This permission can be either written or oral.”
