Yes the Pennsylvania Game Commission is focused on hunters, but the PGC is a state agency, not a public agency. It has a politically-appointed Board of Commissioners and receives no tax dollars from the General Fund. The PGC is directly funded by hunting license fees, federal aid via the Pittman-Robertson Act and sales of timber and gas from the 1.4 million acres of property the PGC and sportsmen own.
Most of that 1.4 million acres is open year-round, however, the PGC does recommend that any hikers, bike riders, birdwatchers, fishermen, photographers or anyone using the game lands during hunting seasons from October to January use caution and wear some fluorescent orange. Except for the fluorescent orange, it reminds me of Knoebel's Grove, no charge to park, no ticket to get in and you can look and listen to everything without spending a dime or having a license.
As to Mr. Kveragas statement that the people are "willing to finance wildlife and other nature-based issues with tax dollars," I'll believe it when I see it but then again they could get a hunting license, buy a gun and ammo and be part of that "vocal special interest group" he referred to.
