Northeast Field Officer Report   - July 31, 2014

Monroe County WCO Ryan Gildea reports several warnings and citations have been issued to individuals for operating ATVs on State Game Lands and PGC Hunter Access properties.

Susquehanna County WCO Rich Briggs reports severe cold snaps during the 2014 beaver season have had a visible effect on beaver populations in the county, based upon spring and summer observations. The amount of ice on waterways limited opportunities for trappers to harvest the animals, which allowed populations (and complaints) to increase. Briggs encourages landowners to install water-leveling systems and to consider allowing trappers to access their properties to reduce future problems.
