750,000 Pa. hunters open 2-week rifle deer season

By: The Associated Press
HARRISBURG, Pa. --

Warmer than average temperatures and mostly clear weather was expected as an estimated 750,000 hunters take to the woods as deer rifle hunting season opens in Pennsylvania.

Hunters in most areas can take bucks and does, though antlered deer only can be targeted in some areas through Dec. 6. The season runs through Dec. 14 and is starting later than normal because Thanksgiving was later than usual this year.

Pennsylvania's deer season for rifle hunters traditionally opens the Monday after the holiday.

Temperatures in lower elevations were expected to get into the mid-40s later in the day, and were hovering at or slightly above freezing as the season opened early Monday.
