 PGC Southcentral Region Office Open Friday, Nov. 29

Pennsylvania Game Commission Southcentral Region Director Dave Carlini announces the Southcentral Region Office will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29 and Saturday, Nov. 30 to accommodate persons wishing to purchase a hunting license.

The Game Commission Southcentral Region Office has traditionally been closed for license sales on the Friday after Thanksgiving but will be open because the 2019 statewide firearms deer season will start on a Saturday.

“We hope to provide improved customer service to our hunters and an opportunity for them to pick up any last-minute license items they might need. The PGC understands that plans can change in the spur of the moment and we want to try and accommodate these folks so they may get afield,” Carlini said.

Normal business hours of the Southcentral Region Office are from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The office is located at 8627 William Penn Highway, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania.

April 2019: Operation Game Thief. We need your help. State Game Warden Wenrich received two calls concerning multiple dead geese in early April.

The first call, on April 6, resulted in 12 geese being discovered. On April 8, another 15 geese were found deceased behind the AMC Classic movie theater along Simpson Ferry Road in Camp Hill. Suspecting possible disease due to no signs of trauma, five geese were sent for necropsy. The necropsy results showed trauma from a small caliber gunshot wound in all five. We are seeking help from anyone who may have observed any suspicious activity in that area on the evenings of April 5 and April 7 to help us figure out what occurred. If anyone has any information, we encourage them to contact the Southcentral Region Office at 1-814-643-1831 or the Operation Game Thief tip line at 1-888-PGC-8001.
