From Pennsylvana Game Commission
-- Continuing its ongoing outreach and educational efforts to heighten the understanding of deer management and whitetails, Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe recently announced the agency has expanded its website's deer management section, created a new deer periodical and posted a deer management video on YouTube.
The new approaches being used by the agency include the use of open houses, development of new brochures and a deer periodical called the "Deer Chronicle," and greatly expanding the deer section of the agency's website to include many top-notch references, deer photos and even an "Ask the Deer Biologist" section.
In addition, the Game Commission has created a new 30-minute deer management DVD that helps explain the complexities of managing deer, satisfying the many stakeholders who are influenced by deer, and addressing why too many deer are not good for the deer herd, the habitat that supports them or Pennsylvanians.
As part of this ongoing effort, the Game Commission's new deer management video was posted on the popular You Tube website. Posted under the account name "PAGameCommission," the agency also plans to provide additional video productions about its wildlife and wildlife habitat efforts, such as posting a recent tour of State Game Land 145 in the Lebanon/Lancaster county area.
To access these new offerings, go to the agency's website (www.pgc.state.pa.us) and click on either the "White-Tailed Deer" icon, which is a link to a variety of information about deer management, or "Deer Mgmt. Video," which provides access to the three 10-minute video segments posted on You Tube.
