Good Thinking
PERRY — As if there wasn’t enough to do on the first Saturday of the firearms deer season, one of our local bears decided to climb a small tree within plain view of Route 274 just outside of New Bloomfield. Deputy Brian Barrick and I were quite concerned about the many vehicles stopping along the roadway, so I walked up to the tree and banged a large stick against the trunk, causing the bear to get nervous. Just as I had planned, it climbed down and began to lumber off, but then climbed a pine tree about 30 yards away. The sightseers quickly dispersed, and Brian and I returned to deer season activities after the brief intermission. — WCO STEVE HOWER, ICKESBURG

Better He Than Me
SNYDER — Cadet Jason Kelley and I were giving a short talk to a Cub Scout troop on what a WCO does. Cadet Kelley was discussing the training school, what he has learned and some things he has done. One of the kids asked him, “When you are trapping bears, do you take someone along who knows what they are doing?” I couldn’t help but laugh, but I was thankful the question wasn’t directed at me. At least I got a Field Note out of it. — WCO HAROLD J. MALEHORN, SELINSGROVE

Takes One To Know One
YORK — Deputy Jeff Orwig called to let me know that his prime witness in a jacklighting violation had just shot not one, but two, antlerless deer, with no antlerless licenses, which makes this person eligible for the new enhanced penalties. It seems the adage still holds that no one dislikes a poacher more than another poacher. — WCO GUY HANSEN, RED LION

Quite Different
CHESTER — I had the opportunity to be part (as a non-hunter) of a hunt for alpine ibex in the Swiss Alps in September. I learned from our host that an annual hunting license for a resident of Switzerland costs $750 in U.S. dollars. A nonresident meeting certain requirements can also obtain a license for about $10,000. Another interesting rule is that no motorized conveyance can be used for any part of the hunt. A hunter must park his vehicle in a local town or village and hike into camp or lodge by foot. This sometimes means a 10-mile walk with a rifle and pack. — WCO SCOTT FREDERICK, SADSBURYVILLE

Just Havin’ Some Fun
BRADFORD — Donna Birks from Athens Township opened her kitchen door to see why her dog was barking and was surprised to see a bear standing on her daughter’s trampoline as if it knew just what to do. She was able to think quickly enough to take a photo of the acrobatic bruin with her cell phone. — WCO JOSEPH WENZEL, ATHENS
