Pennsylvania Game News - November 2009 - 54

For more about noise pollution, The Allegheny Front, an environmental public radio program out of Pittsburgh, had a special on it during the week of August 19, 2009. You can hear the program online at alleghenyfront.org. Click on archives and then the date above. You can also find links to several groups interested in noise pollution including the Noise Pollution Clearinghouse at nonoise.org. and The Right to Quiet Society for Soundscape Awareness and Protection whose motto is “Hear Nature Again” at quiet.org. The latter has a Noiseletter, as they whimsically call it, filled with articles on a wide variety of noise-related subjects, which you can read online. high Andes Mountains of Peru. At 14,000 feet, the silence was amazing. In places where there were people, they went quietly about their work of herding animals, spinning wool and washing clothes. No planes flew overhead; no cars or trucks roared past. We heard every birdsong and the high-pitched whistles of the vicunas. In contrast to that, a couple years later, I accompanied a public television crew to several Pennsylvania natural places I had written about. I remember the frustration of the sound man because we had to wait many long minutes to film without the sound of traffic on nearby country roads or planes overhead. No matter where we go in Pennsylvania, it is difficult to escape from humaninduced noise. Yet I’m convinced that is why many people take up such solitary quiet hobbies such as fly fishing and archery hunting. Others of us escape our noisy world by walking in the woods, canoeing or kayaking in quiet waters, or sitting in treestands listening and watching for deer. Hempton suggests that all of us who seek silence should practice hearing like a deer, something every good hunter already knows. “Deer listen in 360 degrees,” he says, and to imitate them he advises us to go into the woods alone, wear quiet clothing such as cotton or wool, place ourselves near a tree or other object that will reflect sound toward us, create an irregular shape with our bodies, so we will blend into the landscape, stick foam earplugs into our ears before we begin to listen and then take them out in order to hear softer natural sounds, and move our heads slightly every so often, like deer rotate their ears. Moving even an inch may change how and what we hear, according to Hempton. And so, as often as possible, when I go out in our forest, I try to find my own square inch of silence, if only for a few minutes, and listen like a deer. On Sunday mornings, before the trains begin whistling at our crossing at the base of our road, I can find perfect peace deep in our mature forest beside our stream. Listening carefully, I can hear the pitch of the stream changing as water flows over and around its rock-strewn bottom. Sitting on Turkey Bench above the stream one Indian summer day in early November, it was so quiet that I could hear the crackling of leaves as GAME NEWS
