PA's Take A Veteran Bear Hunting Program

Pennsylvania Game Commission, Bear Hunting Magazine

The Pennsylvania Game Commission officials, in partnership with the state chapters of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), are encouraging hunters to help veterans discover or rediscover the thrills and joys of hunting in Pennsylvania, including the archery bear season that will be open when Veterans Day is observed on Monday, November 12, 2012.

To recognize licensed hunters who step up to serve as volunteer guides for a veteran, the PA Game Commission will conduct a drawing to present six framed fine-art wildlife prints. To be eligible for one of the prints, a participating hunter must submit a brief e-mail that outlines the name and address of the veteran taken afield, type of hunting taken part in, and county where the shared hunt took place. American Legion or VFW members who take another veteran hunting also should include their member number.

All participating hunters, including those not affiliated with the American Legion or VFW must send an e-mail to either or A drawing will be held to select the six winners from all e-mails received by December 31, 2012.
