Some Pa. hunters face new rules

HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Game Commission has established new rules for hunters in parts of Adams and York counties as part of its response to the state’s first case of a fatal deer disease.

Hunters are prohibited from moving certain deer parts, using certain attractants, and must bring their deer to a mandatory check station when hunting in a nearly 600-square-mile area. Deer feeding also is banned in the designated area.

The regulations announced Wednesday ban hunters moving from the disease management area deer parts including the head, spinal cord and backbone.

The state Department of Agriculture announced last week that chronic wasting disease had been confirmed in a 3-year-old doe in New Oxford, Adams County.
