if	 hunters	 lose	 their	 certification	
card,	 they	 need	 to	 contact	 the	
agency’s	 Hunter-Trapper	 Education	 Division	 for	 assistance	 in	
obtaining	 a	 replacement	 certificate.	 If	 a	 hunter	 took	 the	 course	
before	 1987,	 the	 individual	 must	
complete	 a	 Hunter	 Education	
Program	Replacement	Certificate	
Affidavit	 form,	 sign	 it	 and	 have	
it	 notarized	 before	 it	 is	 returned	
to	the	Hunter-Trapper	Education	
Division.	Replacement	certificates	
are	usually	mailed	in	10	to	14	days	
upon	 receipt	 of	 an	 application,	
and	there	is	a	$10	fee	for	issuing	a	
replacement	certificate.
Board	takes	other	actions
In	 other	 action,	 the	 Board	 of	
Game	Commissioners:
•	 Announced	 a	 plan	 to	 split	
Wildlife	 Management	 Unit	 2G	
into	 two	 parts;	 the	 new	 portion	
of	the	split	will	be	named	WMU	
2H.	A	board	committee,	headed	by	
Game	 Commissioner	 David	 Putnam,	recommended	this	course	of	

action.	Details	on	the	new	WMU,	
including	its	boundaries	and	how	
it	will	meld	with	existing	seasons	
and	 bag	 limits,	 will	 be	 broached	
after	 the	 proposal	 is	 considered	
for	adoption	at	the	April	meeting.
•	Gave	preliminary	approval	to	
update	the	standard	hunting	hours	
table	 for	 the	 2013-14	 seasons,	 a	
routine	 change	 that	 must	 be	 adopted	each	year	based	on	sunrise/
sunset	 tables	 obtained	 from	 the	
U.S.	Naval	Observatory;	and	
•	 Established	 the	 dates	 of	 the	
Board’s	meeting	schedule	for	2013	
as	 follows:	 April	 14-15,	 at	 the	
agency’s	Harrisburg	headquarters,	
2001	 Elmerton	 Avenue,	 just	 off	
the	Progress	Avenue	exit	of	Interstate	81.
Other	 meeting	 dates	 for	 2013	
will	be	June	24-25,	and	Sept.	2324,	but	the	locations	have	not	been	
set.	The	Board	postponed	setting	
the	 meeting	 dates	 for	 January	 of	
2014,	 but	 that	 meeting	 will	 be	
held	 at	 the	 agency’s	 Harrisburg	
headquarters.
High School students from
Uniontown, MICHAEL BOCHNAK
JR. and ZACHARY HILL, working
on a senior project, did 30 hours
of volunteer service under a
special use permit sprucing up
an old cemetary on State Game
Lands 238 in Fayette County.
Besides cleaning out brush and
trees, the boys installed posts
marking the entrance way,
made a path lined with newly
planted trees leading from a
parking area to the cemetary,
and constructed a sign in the
parking area notifying users
about the historic cemetary.
