Pennsylvania Game News - November 2009 - 41

Round Up A LLEGHENY — I responded to a call about a Cooper’s hawk trapped in the Sargent Electric Company warehouse in downtown Pittsburgh. When I arrived several employees greeted me and showed me where the hawk was, and four individuals asked if they could help. I graciously accepted the offer and soon had my new recruits holding brooms over their heads to help corral the hawk into a corner, where I was able to net it and safely release it outside. One of the employees, Greg, mentioned that he is an avid Game News reader. I told him that maybe he (and the rest of our team) might make it in a future Field Note. So here you are: I would like to thank Greg, Heather, Ebony and Jim for their help. — WCO DAN PUHALA, PITTSBURGH A Trend? CRAWFORD — On the first day of the resident Canada goose season I checked five hunters who had all harvested their birds. What was amazing was the one junior hunter, Jesi, received her HTE card last year and on her first time out she shot the first goose with one shot and the bird was banded. I wrote a Field Note about it in the January issue. She did it again this year, one goose, one shot and the goose was banded. — WCO MARIO L. PICCIRILLI, LINESVILLE Disturbing Trend CHESTER — In a 4-hour period, WCOs Derek Daly and Ray Madden made 19 arrests for illegal narcotic possession, possession of alcohol and underage drinking on SGL 43. — WCO SCOTT FREDERICK, SADSBURYVILLE Amazing Critters LUZERNE — I responded to a call about a bear that damaged the roof of a garage. I checked out the building and discovered claw marks going right up the side of the wooden building. The bear had climbed the building and peeled back sections of sheet metal roof to get at the bee nests under it. Now, I know that bears are excellent climbers when it comes to things that they can wrap their claws and paws around, but this is the first time I ever saw evidence that they could scale vertical surfaces. — WCO GERALD KAPRAL, PLAINS Some Things Never Change M ERCER — In August I visited my neighboring WCO, Clint Deniker, at his home to help with work on his barn. When we had finished, Clint’s wife, Kim, prepared a dozen ears of sweet corn and Clint got out an old movie projector and a reel film called “Wildlife Guardians,” produced by the PGC in the 1960s. In the film I recognized retired WCOs Bill Bower, Al Pedder, and Clint’s father, Jim Deniker, when they were students at Ross Leffler in Brockway, Jefferson County. Watching the film I was reminded what an honor it is to be part of the legacy created in 1895, and of how much the job remains the same since the ’60s, with just a few changes such as vehicles, uniforms, and the title from Game Protector to Wildlife Conservation Officer. — WCO LAWRENCE R. HERGENROEDER, GROVE CITY NOVEMBER 2009 Homebodies CLEARFIELD — I helped with banding geese this year and we tagged around 150 birds at six different locations. It was interesting that many of the birds had tags from previous years banded at the same locations. — WCO DAVID A. CARLINI, CLEARFIELD
