Field Reports - January 8, 2018

Bucks County Game Warden Shawna Burkett reports that several geese were killed and dumped in Bristol, near River Road, around Dec. 10. The goose season was closed in Pennsylvania at that time. A similar incident was reported in Middletown Township at the Frosty Hollow Tennis Center on Nov. 20. Please contact the Southeast Region office at 610-926-3136 if you have any information regarding these incidents.

Chester County Game Warden Keith Mullin reports that, on the Saturday before the firearms deer season opened, an archery hunter was found hunting without a hunting license by a pile of corn 14 yards from his tree stand. Charges for hunting over bait, hunting without a license, and unlawful attempt to take a deer will be filed.

Dauphin and Lebanon counties LMGS Steven Bernardi reports that several citations were written for untagged deer this past deer season. Bernardi reminds hunters that big game must be tagged immediately upon harvesting and before moving the animal. The tag must be completely filled out to be legal. Leaving the date and time blank is not acceptable.

Dauphin County Game Warden Michael Doherty reports that many people are still illegally carrying last year’s hunting licenses with them while hunting. In two cases, this resulted in charges when a deer and a bear were not tagged with the appropriate tag, whether by mistake or deliberately trying to keep a valid tag to reuse.

Lancaster County Game Warden Dennis Warfel reports encountering only two hunters taking antlerless deer during the closed portion of the new split season in WMU 5B. They were cited for unlawful taking or possession of a deer out of season. Several individuals who killed sublegal bucks and broke off the antlers to tag them as antlerless deer also were caught.

Schuylkill County Game Warden Jason Macunas reports that several investigations are still pending as the result of illegal poaching activity. There have been several instances in the county where individuals have shot large bucks with either archery gear or rifles during nighttime hours. This activity is still taking place even since the end of the statewide firearms season. Anyone with information regarding illegal activity are urged to contact the Southeast Regional Office at 610-926-3136.
