Field Reports - April 27, 2018

Clarion County Game Warden Steven J. Ace reports he’s seeing groundhogs out and about. Grab a youth hunter or a mentored youth hunter, take them out and let them familiarize themselves with their firearms and hone their shooting skills on these pesky varmints. This will help the local farmers and will benefit the kids when they head into the field this fall after that trophy buck; not to mention the hours of safety training and good old-fashioned bonding from groundhog outings throughout the spring, summer, and early fall.

Erie County Game Warden Darin L. Clark reports citing a Corry woman for allowing her dogs to chase deer. The deer ran into a fence and had to be put down by a Corry City Police Officer due to its injuries. The police officer was able to locate the owner of the dogs and the information was turned over to the Game Commission.

Erie County Game Warden Darin L. Clark reports seeing eagles hanging around their nests. Before long they will be laying eggs and starting to incubate. People wishing to see them should remember to view from a distance so as not to disturb them. If they are disturbed and leave the nest enough, it can cause the nest to fail.

Jefferson County Game Warden Roger A. Hartless reports several resident hunting licenses were recently found on game lands and turned over to the Game Commission, leading to a citation against a hunter who unlawfully transported deer outside Disease Management Area 3.

Jefferson County Game Warden Roger A. Hartless reports that he has few pending cases and hearings from deer season to wrap up. Although deer season ends for hunters in mid-January, deer season for game wardens usually doesn’t completely end until about the time spring turkey season starts.
