Field officers for the state Game Commission's Northcentral region filed the following reports on Oct. 26, according to the agency's website:
Lycoming County Wildlife Conservation Officer Kristoffer A. Krebs urged hunters to take the time to look over the digest this fall. "Use this as an opportunity to familiarize yourself with any changes made to the regulations in the past year," he said.
Potter County WCO Mark S. Fair said a Shinglehouse man pled guilty to unlawfully possessing a deer he claimed to be a road-killed deer.
"The deer was found to have been shot in the left shoulder blade with a small caliber rifle," he said.
"Many individuals take matters into their own hands, euthanizing deer that have been hit by vehicles," Fair said. "Residents must contact the Game Commission for obtaining the proper permits to possess deer and direction with handling injured deer."
"The second involved a DUI suspect running in an attempt to evade arrest. The second pursuit ended in the suspect being wrestled into handcuffs and assistance from state troopers in completing the arrest," Mee added.
McDowell instructed a course in "Successful Turkey Hunting" to current Hunter-Trapper Education instructors.
