HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Does the moon affect the rut in Pennsylvania? How old do bucks get in Pennsylvania? Have you heard about the new Pennsylvania record buck? Where is the deer program headed for the next 10 years?

If you are curious about the answers to these questions, take a moment and visit the Pennsylvania Game Commission's website ( and you'll find answers to these and many other questions in the "Pennsylvania White-Tailed Deer" section. In particular, check out the latest issue of the "The Deer Chronicle."

"Two years ago, we started 'The Deer Chronicle' as a means of getting timely information out to the public," said Dr. Christopher Rosenberry, Game Commission Deer and Elk Section supervisor. "The Chronicle is an easy read with short articles on topics ranging from antlerless deer license allocation recommendations to field observations of deer biologists in Pennsylvania.

"In addition to the Fall 2010 Chronicle and all previously-published issues, there are numerous other publications on every aspect of the deer management program in the White-Tailed Deer section of the website. We regularly hear questions and concerns regarding the deer management program. In recent years, we have covered many of these issues in publications that are available in this section of our website."
