Pennsylvania Game News - August 2010 - Cover3

T GIVES ME GREAT PLEASURE to recognize Joseph E. Mihalek Jr. as the Northeast Region Outstanding Deputy for 2009. Joe has been a deputy conservation officer since June 1980. He quickly became well respected and successful. His reputation for honesty and integrity bode well for the Game Commission. In February 1985 Joe became a hunter education instructor. For the past several years Joe has been the Bradford County Hunter-Trapper Education coordinator. Joe is active in all aspects of Game Commission business. He handles small animal complaints, helps gather data for various species of wildlife, and has been an exceptional ambassador through his contacts with landowners. Joe has a gift for being able to smooth over situations that could otherwise become complicated. Joe began his commitment to community and country early in life. He served in the U.S. Army from 1968-71. When he came home he operated a service station in the Wysox area, and recently he has been involved in property management and rentals. He also operates a school bus service for the Northeast Bradford School District. Joe was actively involved in both the Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs in LeRaysville for several years, and was recognized for his scouting leadership. Joe Mihalek Jr. is one of the “founding fathers” and original organizers of the Bradford County Youth Field Day, an event held annually since 1990 at Mount Pisgah State Park. Joe also volunteered at the PGC hunter education camp at Bear Creek Camp in Luzerne County, and he received a certificate of appreciation for his efforts. Joe has a passion to protect Pennsylvania’s wild resources and educate young folks and first time hunters. His contributions are priceless to both the agency and the public. Nominated by Joseph Wenzel, WCO Bradford County
