Field Officer Reports - November 9, 2017

Berks County WCO M. P. Teehan reports hunting through the use of bait continues to be a major problem. Additionally, Teehan notes that illicit drug activity and other criminal activities on state game lands are on the increase.

Bucks County WCO Shawna Burkett reports charges have been filed against a Langhorne man who was found to be unlawfully archery hunting through the use of bait. Additionally, the man was within two safety zones and was trespassing on property closed to hunting.

Chester County WCO Keith Mullin reports that, on the opening day of the small-game season, he cited three hunters who were hunting pheasants without the required permits and using unplugged shotguns.

Dauphin County WCO Scott Frederick and his deputy officers have recently filed several citations against multiple individuals for fluorescent-orange violations. Frederick noted, “…while it may seem to be a minor issue to some, statistics have proven time and time again that being visible while afield with a host of other hunting activity going on simultaneously, drastically reduces the chance of being mistaken for game”.

Lancaster County WCO John Veylupek reports he and DWCO Justin Brian encountered a number of archery hunters who were not displaying the required 250 square inches of fluorescent orange clothing while moving to and from their hunting locations during the overlap with early muzzleloader season. Numerous citations have been filed.

Lancaster County WCO Greg Graham reports that nighttime patrols have netted numerous late spotlighting violations throughout the district. Many of the patrols have resulted in charges for possessing unlawful controlled substance and alcoholic beverage on State Game Lands.

Lancaster County WCO Dennis Warfel says the pheasant hunting was very busy on the opening day of general small game at Muddy Run Reservoir. All hunters checked were in possession of the new pheasant hunting permit. One citation was issued to a hunter who possessed an unplugged shotgun. Citations were also given to four archery deer hunters not in compliance with the required wearing of 250 square inches of fluorescent orange material while moving about, during the overlap with early antlerless muzzleloader season.

Schuylkill County WCO Joel Gibble reports that charges have been filed against an individual for shooting a whitetail buck from the road with a rifle during the archery season.
