Field officers for the state Game Commission's Northcentral region filed the following reports on Nov. 19, according to the agency's website:
Lycoming County Wildlife Conservation Officer Kristoffer A. Krebs said a Williamsport man recently pled guilty to possessing a loaded firearm on a vehicle. "The incident occurred on Aug. 19, along Fox Hollow Road in Old Lycoming Township," he said. "The man was hunting coyote and had a loaded rifle on an ATV."
Potter/Tioga Counties LMGS Denise H. Mitcheltree said that the State Game Lands in her two counties experienced very little damage from Superstorm Sandy. "The Food and Cover Corps crews were able to clear tree limb and debris from the roadways within just a few days of the storm so hunters experienced very few access issues when they ventured out for hunting," she said.
Potter County WCO Mark S. Fair said the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy are well documented on humans and our infrastructure. "Many migrating sea birds were impacted as well," he said. "Sea ducks and gulls were observed hundreds of miles inland in small ponds and lakes throughout northcentral Pennsylvania."
