Pennsylvania Hunting

Can anybody any interesting or fun facts about Pennsylvania that are hunting related?

I have to do a project for my diploma class a slide show on life sports, hunting is a lifetime sport so I obviously chose that. Anybody have some interesting/ fun facts I can throw in like most common round used to take game, the most common type of game taken anything interesting or I can use? I know Pennsylvania is one of the few states that allow you to hunt with crossbows during archery season, Also one of the few states that allow buck shot, It's first game law was in 1721.

In the State of Pennsylvania in 1721 Deer were allowed to be Hunted from July 1 to January 1, and the fine for shooting one out of season was 20 shillings. Indians were exempt.* In 1749 Deer were hunted from August 1 to December 1 and fine for shooting out of season was 40 shillings.* On January 27 1749 it was illegal to hunt Deer on Sundays, except in " cases of necessity .".. In 1840 Only Pennsylvania citizens may kill Deer in Monroe, Pike, and Wayne Counties.*.. In 1851 on August 1 Deer Hunting was banned for five (5*) years in Cumberland and Franklin Counties.* In 1873 All Sunday Hunting is banned.*.. In 1873 Dogs first barred statewide from running Deer or Elk.* In 1878 October 1 Pike County banned deer hunting for three (3*) years.*.. In 1897 Salt licks, and Hounds are forbidden statewide in Deer Hunting.*.. In 1905 Deer Season bag limit was reduced from two (2*) to one (1*) Deer.*..In 1906 Deer first stocked { 50 from Michigan } a total 1,192 were purchased and released by the Agency from 1906 to 1925.*.. In 1907 the First Pennsylvania Buck Law was passed; under it Does were given absolute protection.*.. In 1923 Game Commission given authority to establish antlerless deer season. First season was held December 19- 23 in Washington and Quincy townships, Franklin County; 100 licenses allotted at $5.00 Dollars each; 8 Legal and 1 illegal Deer taken.*.. In 1925 Farmers permitted to keep Deer for Food when killed while causing crop damage.*..In 1928 First Statewide season on antlerless deer; closed in 16 counties. { Deer must weigh at least 50 Lbs dressed.}*.. In 1931 First Open season on both Buck and Doe, with only spike bucks protected. Kill was 24,796 Bucks and 70,255 does-- Total 95,051.*..In 1938 First Statewide season for antlerless deer { Buck Season was closed } 171,662 Does harvested.*..In 1951 Special 12 day Open season authorized for Hunting deer with Bows and Arrows exclusively, under a Special $2.00 Dollar archery license.*... In 1967 First Statewide extended { or late, or winter } archery deer season.*..
