Legislation To Allow Night Vision Equipment To Be Used For Predator Hunting Advances in State House

A bill which seeks to help predator hunters has been advanced by the state House Game and Fisheries Committee. The bill would remove restrictions on the use of night vision equipment for hunting and allow the Pennsylvania Game Commission to regulate the equipment. Supporters say the use of night vision scopes on rifles could, for example, help predator hunters to control the coyote population in northwest PA and other parts of the state where there are too many coyotes.
