HE 2009-10 HUNTING SEASON was Wayne Foltz’s seventh season with the Game Commission, and he spent more than 200 hours patrolling the forests and ridges of McKean County. He spent another 50 hours in training, Hunter-Trapper Education and other PGC activities. One of the biggest challenges in this district is keeping up with public access properties. With almost 100,000 acres enrolled, keeping up with offroad vehicle violations alone is a major undertaking — not to mention dumping, illegal treestands and property damage. Wayne understands the importance of the Public Access Programs and spends most of his patrol time protecting these properties from abuse. He truly is the “face of the Game Commission” on some of these properties. His contribution to the success of these programs cannot be over emphasized. Wayne is also active during the busy hunting seasons, when he is most needed. One case from this past season involved three individuals who offered, via text message, to sell deer to another person. That person then relayed the information to the PGC and we had a very small window of opportunity to work the case. Wayne stepped up and posed as the individual to whom the offer was made. That night, he met the three individuals in the parking lot of a bar, gathered information on their poaching activities, and purchased a buck from them. The three individuals have been charged with conspiring to sell game. This case may not have come to fruition without Wayne’s involvement. Wayne takes all training seriously and is always interested in increasing his knowledge. He applies his training to field work thereby increasing the level of security to himself and the officers he works with. Wayne always presents himself to the public in a very professional manner and is truly an asset to the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Nominated by Leonard A. Groshek, WCO McKean County
