Perry — I  needed  to  trap  bears  for  research on one of our local Game Lands so  I placed a trail camera at the trap site to  see what went on when no one was around.  The flurry of activity has amazed me. In a  few short weeks I’ve gotten photos and video of raccoons, porcupines, crows, ravens, a  red-tailed hawk, several rabbits, a jumping  mouse,  squirrels,  a  fisher,  several  deer,  a  turkey and, oh yeah, a couple of bears that  were eventually trapped, weighed, tagged  and released on site. — WCO Steve HOWer, iCkeSBurg

Surprising

Blair — An  individual  from  Riggles  Gap  reported  that  his  wife  witnessed  a  chickadee  darting  from  an  avian  predator fly through an open sliding glass door.  Following  directly  behind  it  was  a  redtailed hawk that entered the dining room.  Perched on a tall chair, the redtail peered  under the table where the chickadee was hiding. Donna was too excited to reach for  the camera for an outstanding photograph. — WCO Steve HanCzar, BellWOOd BerkS — One  day  I  stopped  to  grab  a  quick  lunch  at  an  ethnic  restaurant  in  Reading and I communicated by pointing  at the menu and using hand gestures. The  next day I had to wait behind a horse and  buggy as I left an HTE course. — WCO dave BrOCkmeier, mOHntOn JefferSon — I  recently  lost  half  of  my  deputy  force  when  Deputy  Jesse  Bish  was accepted into the PGC’s Ross Leffler  School of Conservation. Although I was  happy  for  Jesse  and  his  success,  I  really  could not afford to lose a deputy. If anyone  in northern Jefferson County is interested  in working with wildlife, law enforcement  and natural resource conservation, please  check out the PGC’s website for information  on  becoming  a  deputy  wildlife  conservation officer.  — WCO rOger a. HartleSS, BrOOkville Wyoming — Certified master beekeeper  Jerry Ely from Dimock has kept bees and  sold honey for more than 60 years. While  Jerry had to retire from his passion, he still  has  most  of  the  equipment,  including  a  honey house — a place he built to bottle  the  honey  he  sold.  Unfortunately,  the  local bears have not retired from visiting  Jerry and are still causing problems for the  92-year-old. — WCO viCtOr rOSa, Fleetville

Coffee, Tea or Chickadee?

A Variety of Experiences

Wanted

Training School — One of my duties as  resident instructor is to inspect the training wing that the cadet class is assigned to  maintain. During one of my inspections I  tried to turn on the water in the lavatory  sink and nothing happened. I then went  to the next sink in line and attempted to  turn it on, with the same result. A closer  inspection  revealed  that  the  cadets  assigned  to  lavatory  cleaning  detail  were  tired of getting gigged for water drops on  the sink bowls and stainless faucets prior to  inspection, so they shut off the water lines  under  the  four  sinks  so  their  classmates  would not leave a mess. I give them credit  for their ingenuity. — WCO Brian e. WitHerite, reSident  inStruCtOr, HarriSBurg
