Two Chester County residents were tapped to sit on Gov. Corbett’s newly-created Advisory Council for Hunting, Fishing and Conservation, the governor announced today.

"Pennsylvania's rich outdoor heritage, including activities such as hunting, fishing, trapping, birding, wildlife viewing, boating and hiking, are enjoyed by more than 5.9 million Pennsylvania residents and visitors each year," Gov. Corbett said in a news release. "These outdoor recreational activities annually generate more than $5.4 billion for Pennsylvania's economy, which makes this council's input very critical."

The order creating the new panel consolidates several previous advisory councils into a single entity that will make writen recommendations on issues such as regulations. The new council consists of individuals concerned with the recreational use and conservation of Pennsylvania's natural resources, including hunters, trappers, anglers and other conservationists, the release said. They include Brett Unruh of Coventryville and Robert McRae of West Chester.
