Pennsylvania Game News - July 2010 - 39

Interesting Information
In cooperation with the Somerset Chapter of Pheasants Forever, the Game Commission obtained 237 pheasants (29 males and 208 females) from South Dakota last February. Many birds were fitted with radio tracking devices and released into the Wild Pheasant Recovery Area in Somerset County. An additional shipment of 70 birds arrived in early March. In the course of this 3-year reintroduction project, the PGC has learned that protective over-winter habitat, while important, is not as critical as large amounts of undisturbed nesting habitat. The overall success of the species in the midwestern states appears to be attributed to large fields that are not harvested until well after the June nesting season. — LMO DAN YAHNER, EVERETT

It’s a Mixed Up World
The Erie County Food & Cover crew maintains wood duck nesting boxes at the PF&BC Corry Fish Hatchery. This past year the top bolt of a nest box failed and caused it to hang upside down. The nest box was still used and resulted in wood duck hatchlings. Like me, sometimes animals just don’t know which end is up. — LMO SHAYNE A. HOACHLANDER, CORRY

Right On One Account
FAYETTE — I stopped a couple of ATV riders on SGL 51. Riding one of the ATVs was the ex-wife with her new fiancé and on the other was the ex-husband of the woman. The three found it quite amusing to be caught riding illegally together, and asked if the encounter would qualify for a Field Note. — WCO JASON D. FARABAUGH, SCOTTDALE

Ouch!
LACKAWANNA — A Thornhurst resident was watching TV with his dad when they heard what sounded like someone hitting a piece of metal with a hammer. Thinking it was a neighbor working on his car, they dismissed it. A half hour later, however, with the pinging still going on, they got up to investigate. To their surprise they discovered the noise was coming from a flock of turkeys in their driveway. The turkeys, seeing their reflections on the side of a brand new pickup, were pecking at it. The next pinging noises came from the body shop banging out all the dents. — WCO MARK RUTKOWSKI, TAYLOR

Guarding the Fort
TRAINING SCHOOL — Before reporting for training at the Ross Leffler School of Conservation, I discussed with my wife the possible trials and tribulations she might encounter on the home front while I was away. So far, and only a few weeks into my year-long training, she’s dealt with a major plumbing disaster and a nasty hornet infestation in our home. She hasn’t complained once, though. This Field Note is for you, Emie, and for all the families of the 28th Class. — CADET DAN MURRAY, HARRISBURG
