Field Officer Reports - May 5, 2017

Berks County WCO Dave Brockmeier reports members of the Bechtel Chapter of the Ruffed Grouse Society removed a large section of deer exclosure fence on State Game Lands 110. Additionally, hikers were more numerous than turkey hunters on the first day of spring gobbler.

Bucks County WCO Ellyn Henry reports several citations are being filed for the possession of a wild turkeys illegally harvested in New Jersey and transported across state lines in violation the federal Lacey Act.

Dauphin County WCO Mike Doherty reports over 90 percent of game violators either pleaded guilty or are found guilty by a judge, and a small percentage just decided to ignore their summons. However, judges don’t like to be ignored, and when an alleged violator disrespects the court, the judge issues a command to the WCO to go find that person and bring him or her before the court immediately, in handcuffs if necessary. Even though most charges are filed in autumn and winter, spring and summer sometimes find us hunting down accused violators, and bringing them before the judge for their constitutional rights – whether they want it or not.

Lancaster County WCO John Veylupek reports monitoring several bald eagle and osprey nests. At this point, it appears that there are 10 active eagle nests and one active osprey nest in his district.

Lehigh County WCO Kevin Halbfoerster reports filing charges against a business owner who shot two Canada geese on his pond. A patron witnessed the act and reported it. The owner was advised to report any wildlife issues to the Game Commission before taking action.

Montgomery County WCO Raymond Madden reports that multiple court cases were held on cases he was working, and investigations including the unlawful killing of a whitetail buck during the antlerless shotgun season, and multiple cases involving hunter trespass, wrapped up.
