Governor Tom Corbett has signed into law a bill to protect land owners who allow others to hunt on their property.
Senate Bill 648 says people can't be held liable for the illegal actions of someone who has been given permission to hunt on their land.
Previously, land owners who allowed hunting could be held responsible for violations by hunters, such as taking an animal out of season.
Land owners can still face fines and penalties if they conspire with a hunter to commit an unlawful act or assist the hunter in any way.
Supporters say the new law has the potential to open up new land to hunters now that owners know they won't be responsible for violations.
