Dog Training Activities; Order of Rescission

[47 Pa.B. 3473]
[Saturday, June 17, 2017]

Executive Order

Whereas, On March 24, 2006, the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Game Commission (Commission) issued an executive order titled ''LIMITED CLOSURE OF STATE GAME LANDS TO DOG TRAINING ACTIVITIES''; and

Whereas, On March 28, 2017, the Commission amended 58 Pa. Code § 135.41 (relating to State game lands) to prohibit a person from engaging in dog training activities from the Monday prior to the start of the youth pheasant season until the opening of the regular pheasant season on lands designated as State game lands; and

Whereas, On May 6, 2017, the amendments to 58 Pa. Code § 135.41 were published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin and became legally effective; and

Whereas, The Commission has determined that the relocation and establishment of the restriction on dog training activities preceding and during applicable pheasant seasons in Section 135.41 has rendered the above-listed executive order redundant, unnecessary and subject to rescission.

Now Therefore, I, BRYAN J. BURHANS, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Game Commission, pursuant to the authority vested in me by the Code and regulations promulgated thereunder, do hereby order and direct the following:

 1. The previous executive order titled ''LIMITED CLOSURE OF STATE GAME LANDS TO DOG TRAINING ACTIVITIES'' is hereby rescinded in its entirety.

 2. This Order is effective immediately and shall remain in effect until replaced by subsequent order.

 Given under my hand and seal of the Pennsylvania Game Commission on this 1st day of June, 2017.

Executive Director
