HARRISBURG â€” Pennsylvaniaâ€™s only unofficial holiday â€” the Monday after Thanksgiving â€” marks the opening day of the two-week general deer season and will feature nearly 750,000 individuals sporting fluorescent orange while canvassing the woods for that trophy buck.
Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) 2-A, 2-F and 3-B have been added to the split-season structure, in which the first five days are open for antlered deer only, and the remaining seven days are open for antlered and antlerless deer, said Jerry Feaser, Pennsylvania Game Commission public information officer.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” If your family is looking to begin a Christmas tradition, a good starting point would be with the Home for the Holidays parade followed by the Punxsutawney Rotary Club's traditional lighting of the Circle of Trees in Barclay Square tonight.
2006 was the first year that the Rotary Club constructed the large artificial tree on the bandstand in Barclay Square, said Tom Chelgren, of the Punxsutawney Rotary Club.
They had such a great success with the large tree that the Rotary wanted to expand it to make Punxsutawney more attractive during the
Christmas season, he said.
