A memo circulated in the Pennsylvania Senate seeks support for making drones legal to recover game. The columnist argues that Pennsylvania’s hunting culture is better off without aerial aids. (Photo by Eversource NH, Flickr)

Jarrett Coleman, Bucks, Lehigh counties, circulated a memorandum seeking support for his soon-to-be-introduced legislation that would make use of aerial devices (drones) legal in Pennsylvania in game recovery.

Coleman’s bid.
