Much of Monday’s meeting will be dedicated to a discussion on Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). A host of experts are scheduled to offer testimony for the board to consider in the development of a new CWD Response Plan, a draft of which was unveiled last year. Information on the 2020-21 antlerless deer license allocations and elk license allocations also will be discussed.
The meeting will reconvene Tuesday, April 7 at 11 a.m. with the board picking up its prepared agenda. Because the meeting is being held only online, public comments are being collected and considered prior to the meeting.
The Game Commission’s offices remain closed and Pennsylvanians statewide have been ordered to stay at home due to the global COVID-19 outbreak.
The Game Commission moved its meeting to an online format in response, and the agency thanks the public for its understanding and support. While the agency’s No. 1 concern, at this time, is protecting human health, it remains as committed and as passionate as ever to managing Pennsylvania’s wild birds, wild mammals, and their habitats for current and future generations.
