Free subscription offers timely reminders to Pennsylvania hunters.
HARRISBURG, Pa., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Antlerless deer licenses again are on sale, did you remember to send in an application?
Hunter-Trapper Education classes are filling rapidly, have you reserved spots for family members who will join the ranks this year?
The deadline to report spring gobbler harvests has long expired, did your success go uncounted?
In a day and age where so many so often are so busy, it's easy to forget things.
But the Pennsylvania Game Commission wants to make sure outdoors enthusiasts keep close track of the issues important to them.
The Game Commission is offering sportsmen and sportswomen the opportunity to sign up to receive emails from the agency. There's no cost for the service, and registration is quick and easy.
Just go to the Game Commission's website (www.pgc.state.pa.us) and click on the blue "Subscribe to Email" box along the right side of the homepage. From there, enter your name, email address and choose from among categories of emails you'd like to receive. The latest hunting news and other helpful reminders will begin showing up in your inbox.
Samantha Pedder, outreach coordinator for the Pennsylvania Game Commission, said subscribing to emails decreases the chance hunters will let important dates pass them by.
"Hunters have some of the busiest schedules imaginable, and when you're crunched for time, even important things have a way of slipping your mind," Pedder said. "An email subscription is a great way to keep important issues from falling off a hunter's radar."
Those who sign up can subscribe to Game Commission emails in any or all of four categories: Resources for Educators, Hunting Seasons and Information, News Releases, and Watchable Wildlife. The more categories they choose, the more information they'll get, Pedder said.
"Sign up now so you're sure you won't forget," she said.
