Pennsylvania Game News - July 2012 - 25

Fayette — I  was  checking  a  group  of  hunters during deer season when they mentioned  prior  meetings  with  the  “younger  looking”  WCO  the  year  before.  I  got  a  quick chuckle from them when I jokingly  asked what they were implying. Sooner or  later WCO Jason Farabaugh will get gray  hair, too. — WCO ChristOpher Bergman, Belle VernOn

It Happens to Us All

Perry — After  receiving  a  call  from  a  local farmer about a barn owl nesting in the  top of an active silo I contacted biologist  Clayton Lutz so that we could rescue the  eggs or young owls if there were any. After  arriving at the farm, Clay tilted his head  back to look up to the top of the silo then  said,  “You  know,  I’m  extremely  afraid  of  heights.” I mentioned that was like a marine biologist being afraid of water. Despite  not planning on it, I slowly climbed to the  top where I peered in and saw the owl and  her  clutch  of  six  eggs.  When  I  was  back  on the ground I told Clay that now I was  afraid of heights, too. As it turned out, the  farmer was caring enough to climb up and  retrieve the eggs for us. — WCO steVe hOWer, iCkesBurg

A Long Way Down

crawFord — Throughout January and  February I watched flocks of turkeys, some  containing close to 30 birds, foraging in the  fields. The lack of snow gave all wildlife access to food sources that are normally burWelcome Mat ied under a foot or more of snow. Avoiding  BedFord — A  bear  was  seen  in  early  the stress of a long winter, wildlife should  spring at Shawnee State Park sitting at a  have good recruitment.  picnic  table,  seemingly  waiting  for  some  — WCO JaCOB J. Olexsak, COnneaut lake campers to arrive with a picnic basket. — WCO Jeremy COughenOur, BedfOrd

Easy Times

L ycoming  — I  hunted  with  retired  brothers former I&E Supervisor Dan Marks  and LES Tim Marks during the late muzzleloader season. The hunting and camaraderie was enjoyable, but I noticed something  else: It was apparent that although retired,  a good WCO is always looking for a good  Field Note. — WCO JOnathan m. Wyant, mOntOursVille

In the Blood

t raining S chooL — On  our  first  Monday morning at the school, Director  Grenoble asked us to go around the room  and state something about ourselves. What  was weird is that of the 36 Cadets selected  from more than 700 applicants, two of us  graduated from the same small (less than  1,400 people) college. We even graduated  with the same majors and had some of the  same classes together, and we never even  knew it. — Cadet steVe kniCkel, harrisBurg
