As I read the Oct. 6 Outdoors page of the Mirror, I was dismayed that you would advocate illegal hunting activity.
The Mirror printed a photograph of a hunter in full camouflage, with the caption " sitting camouflaged, quietly waiting for squirrels to get active."
This is illegal. The Pennsylvania Game Commission Hunting and Trapping Digest clearly states on Page 68 for all small game seasons that a minimum of 250 square inches of fluorescent orange must be worn at all times on the head, chest and back with a combined visible of 360 degrees.
Clearly the outdoor staff failed to research the game laws before including this photograph and advocating this practice.
The outdoor staff might not be hunters. Maybe it was just an oversight. It could be illegal hunting practices are not important. They might not be not concerned with hunter safety. Whatever the reason for this gaffe, the record should be set straight.
It is illegal to hunt squirrels or any other small game while dressed in full camouflage.
