Today, Governor Tom Wolf signed House Bill 263 into law, making Pennsylvania the 49th state to allow semi-automatic rifle hunting. Please take a moment to thank your state Representative, your state Senator and Governor Wolf supporting this important legislation.

HB 263, as amended, will eliminate the prohibition on semi-automatic rifles for hunting and allow for the Pennsylvania Game Commission to regulate these sporting rifles for all game species in accordance with season and bag limits. The use of semi-automatic shotguns for hunting has been legal for decades in the Keystone state; however, the use of semi-automatic rifles for hunting was prohibited in Pennsylvania as well as the neighboring state of Delaware. Semi-automatic rifles simply give hunters a much greater ability to fire a timely and accurate follow-up shot, which can be the huge difference between wounding or quickly taking a game animal. Larger calibers, including the popular .30-06 and larger, generate significant recoil that some shooters may not handle well. Gas-operated semi-automatics have less recoil, making them more user-friendly.

Please note, a semi-automatic rifle may be used to hunt game in accordance with regulations promulgated by the commission.

Again, please contact your state Representative, your state Senator and Governor Wolf to thank them for supporting HB 263. ​

    On the one hand hunting is a sport and making it easier doesn’t improve the sport anymore the moving the basket lower would improve basketball. On the other hand the more white tail we get rid of the better in PA.
