Stocking Trout 2023 Schedules

DCNR has released the 2023 stocking schedule! It is searchable by county, lists the waterways in alphabetical order, and indicates stocking dates, meeting locations for volunteers, and the species of trout that are planned to be stocked at each location. You will need a license if you are 16 and older and can purchase fishing licenses and trout permits at HuntFishPA.


E-BIKES Policy for State Parks and Forests

From DCNR, “they received more than 640 comments from the public on the draft policy,” Dunn said. “Based on the review of the comments, we have made some minor adjustments and will now move forward allowing e-bikes on trails already open to traditional bicycle usage on the lands managed by the department, as long as users follow some guidelines.”  Read the announcement from the Pennsylvania Pressroom.  Here’s the link to the policy


Donate Your Harvested Deer to Help Reduce Hunger in Pennsylvania

From the November DCNR newsletter, Hunters Sharing the Harvest is Pennsylvania’s venison donation program. Hunters can share their extra venison through a statewide network of participating butchers to food pantries and community assistance centers across the state.

Hunters can drop off a whole field-dressed deer at one of the participating processors. There is no fee to donate a deer thanks to sponsorship support from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, Pennsylvania Game Commission, business partners, sportsmen’s clubs, and thousands of individuals who provide much needed financial contributions each year.

All Pennsylvanians, whether they hunt or not, are urged to donate tax-deductible financial contributions to the Hunters Sharing the Harvest program to help meet the cost of processing deer for the program. For every $25 donated, 100 meals can be served.
