There’s a reason for the decline in Wild Turkeys in Pennsylvania

It is not habitat loss. It’s predation that seems to be the main cause. <click for details>

Fishers <click for details>, reintroduced by the Pennsylvania Game Commission back in 1994-95 in Blair and Bedford counties to reduce the Porcupine population, are widely regarded as the single most serious threat to mature Turkeys. <click for details>


Support the Traditional Monday Rifle Deer Season Opener

Unified Sportsmen of PA has maintained a neutral position regarding the controversy of the Saturday versus Monday Deer Rifle Season.
We have reviewed a few polls/surveys, two by USP, and one by the Game and Fisheries committee, as well as heard about other polls/surveys of hunters. The only one that supported the Saturday opener was one the PGC did of a sample of only 2,000 hunters which many of us hunters feel questions were set up to get the answer they wanted. With the overwhelming response of the hunters supporting the traditional Monday opener, USP BODs now come out in support of the Monday Rifle Deer Season. <Seasons and Bag Limits – click here>


Saturday Deer Opener Failures

After 3 years of the Saturday deer opener, as predicted by all the 2018- 2019 evidence the PGC board ignored, many hunters are still upset and complaining. Some liked it but, the evidence is clear it did little to nothing to increase hunting license sales and did economic damage to many rural businesses.

With that in mind, 3 years in, voices from many hunters that. preferred the time the Monday opener gave are not being conveyed. Hunters need to speak up where it matters…. to the PGC. I know they did not listen before, but that is no reason to hang our heads in defeat, we have the evidence on our side even more so today. The compromise that would bring back that weekend of time to scout, mark trails with trail markers for pre-daylight entry, a few last-minute confirming rifle shots to confirm our guns, the restore the economic demise it caused to rural businesses and first responder fund-raising events, a far more relaxed time frame to prepare and open camps if you camp hunt, and time to experience all the family and friend traditions that are now far too rushed if at all able to be carried out.

The compromise is to bring back the Monday opener and put on the next two Sundays giving two full hunting weekends and a 13-day continuous run of the season. email the commissioners at pgccomments@pa.gov.

Special alert to all members.  Our Constitutional rights are under attack by the liberals!  We are aware that the cost of living has gotten out of control and everyone is being hurt by higher prices on everything.  This is what the powers currently in government want.


We are asking all members to donate to USP legal defense fund. We will possibly be involved in a court battle to protect our constitutional rights.

If the government has its way, we will lose our rights and live under a dictatorship.


Please donate to protect those rights that our forefathers fought so hard to establish.

This court issue is currently confidential, once it becomes public, I will be sending out another alert explaining why help is needed.

I know we live in a time of scams with many criminals attempting to steal our money, but this is not a scam our rights are under attack, and if we do not stop it we will be under dictatorship.

How to donate?  We have two ways first you can do it online (click here) using PayPal (if you do not have a PayPal account they will accept credit cards or debit cards).

Opposing an Article V Constitutional Convention, we have an excellent constitution right now only if the government would follow it.  I received an alert this morning from FOAC and recommend you read it and contact your representatives to oppose this. There is big money pushing for this COS and most of that money wants to take away our rights and control us like sheep.

Our 2nd amendment rights are at stake.  Read the FOAC alert here



I have written a few problems I feel we have with our Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC).  These opinions expressed here are my personal opinions and not those of Unified Sportsmen of PA.       <Read more>



After over 200 years of freedom is America Destin to become a Social Communist-run country? If the current corrupt politicians have their way YES it just may.

Below are a couple of articles for you to read and form your own opinion:

1. Communist Biden regime plans to put “Anti-vaxxers” on the “No gun list” so Americans can’t defend themselves from CDC internment camps. Read article
2. No Vaccination, No Guns New Secret Plan For Gun Confiscation. Read article
3. House Democrats pass a bill that will give them full control of every Future Election. Read article


Biden’s Plan to Disarm America

We knew it was coming……now it’s here.

This is not about gun control; it’s about controlling us – which is the reason they want to take our guns. Statistics are perfectly clear that rifles kill very few people in this country, yet so-called “assault weapons” are their primary target. It’s interesting to note that the AR-15 is the most popular rifle in America – what does that tell you……????

David Chipman who Biden nominated for Director of ATF to head this up is a complete whack job – an absolute nut case!!

I don’t care if you are a Democrat or a Republican, this should concern you deeply. Click HERE to listen to Tucker Carlson’s analysis. This is very well laid out; it will tell you what’s coming and why.  Must-watch TV for all gun owners!

Americans, beware if the Democrats get their way, we are going to be required to have papers to travel. Make no mistake the corrupt government wants to totally control you!

Imagine you are traveling and get stopped at a checkpoint and do not have the correct papers!  Plan on being arrested and locked up without any rights.


Joe Biden wants you and me to carry around a VACCINE PASSPORT… so we can “prove” our medical history whenever a business or government official demands it.

To say this is unconstitutional is an understatement. It’s un-American.

This much is clear: no one’s going to give us our freedoms back. We have to TAKE them back.


Our Constitutional Rights are in serious danger right now.  Rather you want to believe it or not the current Administration, which some say effectively stole the election and now there is a serious concern if we will ever see a legitimate election.  Unless the House of Representatives or Senate stands up for America, the United States is headed toward a Social Communist country.

Consider joining National Rifle AssociationGun Owners of America, or PA Firearm Owners Against Crime.    We need to protect our rights, and can only hope the US House of Representatives and US Senate protect our rights.
