Field Officer Reports - July 1, 2015

Bradford County WCO Blake Barth reports seeing a good population of wildlife offspring this year on state game lands. Everything from deer fawns to grouse broods have been sighted numerous times. "The hard work by the Game Commission's Food and Cover crews to create healthy wildlife habitat on these lands is really evident," said Barth.

Monroe County WCO Ryan Gildea reports the unlawful activities on state game lands and Hunter Access properties resulted in citations being issued for operating ATVs and the dumping of trash.

Bradford County WCO Michael Goodenow reports enforcement efforts continue on state game lands in Bradford County to address misuse. Please report to your nearest Game Commission region office any observed or suspected illegal activity on public property.

Wayne County WCO Jim McCarthy states that a man and woman from the Allentown area pleaded guilty to several charges after they were found camping on State Game Lands 312 in Gouldsboro. To get to their camping location, the pair drove a Jeep around a locked gate and into the game lands

Susquehanna County WCO Ben Rebuck reports filing multiple citations against one individual that fired a rifle from the road at a groundhog.

Lackawanna County WCO Jared Turner reports he received information that a bear was shot in the hind quarters with No. 6 shot near the Wayne-Lackawanna county line. Anyone seeing an injured or dead bear in the area is asked to call the Game Commission's Northeast Region Office at 570-675-1143.

Susquehanna County WCO Mike Webb reports that increased gas-industry activity has brought workers and their families from around the country to Susquehanna County, resulting in an increased use of state game lands. Most are amazed at the large amount of property open to hunting in this area. Those I have encountered have been abiding by game-lands regulations and are eager to enjoy these lands during the upcoming hunting seasons.
