Pennsylvania Game News - March 2010 - 36

Ingenious UNION — A few of my HTE instructors were complaining about having to lie on the cold, damp ground while in a field to hunt geese, when one day one stopped by my house while I was working out using an army issue physical training mat and thought that would be the perfect solution to their goose hunting problem. When I went to my next military drill weekend I bought them each a mat and that solved their problem. — WCO DIRK B. REMENSNYDER, LEWISBURG Eye Opener FAYETTE — I found it interesting to view trail camera photos taken during the firearms deer season. Of the 12 days during the season, 9 showed deer passing through during hunting hours of which 6 revealed legal bucks. On the last Friday of the season, 2 8-points and a 6-point were photographed about one hour after daybreak. By the way, the camera was set up on State Game Lands 51 in an easily accessible area. — WCO JASON D. FARABAUGH, SCOTTDALE Above and Beyond WYOMING — To say that Deputy Jeff Pierce assisted me last season would be an understatement. He worked more than 160 hours in December alone, despite running his own business. Jeff provided not only friendship, but invaluable assistance with evidence gathering and investigation skills. WCOs cannot do this job by themselves, and I certainly could not have accomplished what I did without the help of Jeff. —WCO VICTOR ROSA, TUNKHANNOCK Freak Accident Disturbing Trend VENANGO — There was an increase in the number of baited site cases in my district. I think this has occurred because of the increased use of treestands and hunting leases. Because no one is moving the deer, and each lease holder has an assigned area, hunters are relying on bait to bring the deer to them. — WCO LEONARD C. HRIBAR, OIL CITY POTTER — I was sent to investigate a dead bull elk in Stewardson Township, so I loaded my metal detector and made sure I had all my other investigative tools. As I traveled to the scene, I visualized all the possible poaching scenarios that could have occurred. After I arrived, I discovered that the 5x6 bull had been hit by a dead branch that had dislodged from a tree during a storm. Region Wildlife Management Supervisor Tony Ross confirmed the elk’s head trauma when he took tissue samples for disease testing. — WCO MARK S. FAIR, COUDERSPORT Congratulations TIOGA — I had the pleasure of presenting one of my HTE instructors his 50-year training certificate. Jack Kenyon became an instructor the first year that instructors were certified. He stated that he has seen many changes throughout his career, but he has always loved teaching, instructing and bringing new people into the outdoor sports. Thanks to Jack and all HTE instructors who make the program what it is. — WCO ROBERT F. MINNICH, MANSFIELD A New One WAYNE — WCOs hear just about every excuse imaginable, but I had to chuckle when a man from out of state who was being cited for hunting in a baited area said, “I don’t know anything about that bait pile. It must come with the property lease.” — WCO JAMES MCCARTHY, WAYMART GAME NEWS
