GAME COMMISSION REMINDS HUNTERS TO REPORT DEER HARVESTS

GAME COMMISSION REMINDS HUNTERS TO REPORT DEER HARVESTS

Taking a few minutes to submit a report makes a valuable contribution to deer management.

As the deer seasons head toward their close, the Pennsylvania Game Commission is issuing one last reminder for successful deer hunters to report their harvests.

Hunters who harvest big game in Pennsylvania are required to report their harvests to the Game Commission using one of three methods.

Each method takes only minutes.

Hunters can go to the Game Commission’s website and report harvests online, they can make reports by phoning toll-free, or they can fill out and return the postage-paid report cards included in the 2014-15 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest they received when they purchased their licenses.

Additionally, hunters who obtain antlerless deer permits through the Deer Management Assistance Program are required to submit a report, regardless of whether they harvested a deer.

Likewise, hunters who were issued Disease Management Area 2 antlerless deer permits must submit a report regardless of whether they harvested a deer.

Harvest reports are an important part of measuring the deer harvest, Game Commission Executive Director R. Matthew Hough said. The more hunters who report as required, the more accurate the agency’s deer harvest projections are, Hough said.

“Each hunter who submits a harvest report makes a valuable contribution to deer- management in Pennsylvania, and I thank all hunters who follow through on their obligation to report their harvests,” Hough said.

Hunters who have multiple antlerless deer licenses are reminded to make sure they file the correct report for the antlerless license used to tag the deer in the field.

The best way to report a deer harvest is online. Go to the Game Commission’s website, www.pgc.state.pa.us, and click on the blue box titled “Report a Harvest.” The box appears near the top of the home page, along the right side. Hunters are walked through a step-by-step process, and at the end of that process, they must click “Submit” for the report to be sent.

The toll-free Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone harvest reporting system can be accessed by dialing 1-855-PAHUNT1 (1-855-724-8681). Hunters should have their Customer Identification Number (hunting license number) and field harvest tag information with them when they call, and should speak clearly and distinctly when reporting harvests, especially when providing the Wildlife Management Unit number and letter.

Hunters may report one or more harvests in a single session, and responses to all harvest questions are required.

Hunters who use the toll-free number to submit a harvest report will receive a confirmation number, which they can write down and keep as proof of reporting. Likewise, those who report online can print or save a copy of their harvest report submission.

Hunters still have the option to file harvest report postcards, which are orange and included as tear-out sheets in the Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest.

DR. AMANDA TANNER (CLASS OF 2002) NAMED PORT ALLEGANY HIGH SCHOOL'S ALUMNI OF THE MONTH

Leaving a Legacy

We are very pleased to showcase noteworthy individuals who have left a fine legacy and defined the very essence of what and who we are — those who have made us better simply because they were here.
Alumni of the Month - Dr. Amanda TannerAlumni of the Month - Dr. Amanda Tanner
Year of Graduation
2002
What have you done since graduating from Port Allegany High School?
After graduating from Port Allegany, I attended Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA where I met a lot of good friends, learned about life away from McKean County, and most importantly learned to line dance which I continue to enjoy doing.
In 2006, I graduated with a B.S. degree in biology. I then attended veterinary school at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. In May of 2010, I graduated with a doctor of veterinary medicine degree after a lot of fun but really hard work. Shortly after graduating I was chosen to attend Cornell University's summer dairy institute where I learned I did not want to be a dairy exclusive vet and that I wanted to come back home. Ever since then I have worked at the H&S Pet Animal Hospital with Dr. Rumsey as a small animal veterinarian, and I have my own large animal practice. I enjoy working with most species of animals and hope to remain in the area living on a dairy farm.
Where do you currently live?
Eldred, PA on the farm I grew up on.
Who was your favorite teacher in high school? Why were they your favorite?
I enjoyed all of my teachers in high school. Most of them deserve a pat on the back for challenging me and teaching me that learning new things can be fun. There are the few I will never forget picking on like Mr. Scott and Mr. Caskey, but the one teacher who deserves my highest respect is Mr. Bill Potter. I remember sitting in his honors biology class the last week of my senior year of high school telling him I didn't want to attend college. He insisted I applied and thanks to him, I started out as a biology major and before I knew it, all of the rest of the steps to me becoming a veterinarian fell into place. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't be doing what I am today.
What is your fondest memory of Port Allegany High School?
My memories are all little things that make up the entire six years at Port Allegany High School. A typical day is the best memory. Starting with homeroom where we could share stories and possibly how to do last night’s homework. Then a typical morning of classes including math and science and possibly study hall where I could help out in the library or study for a test. Then came lunch where the food was nothing to brag about but there was always a lot of laughing and friendship while a monitor was there ready to say things were getting out of hand. Then came the afternoon of perhaps English, history class, and maybe another study hall that could be filled some days by chorus where you practiced so everyone would sound great for the big concert. Intermixed would be art classes, gym classes, and even some shop classes and health. Evenings and weekends could also mean attending sporting events where you either participated or cheered on your fellow gator classmates. All of this time seemed wasted when you are a high school student but looking back as an adult you think that really wasn't that bad after all.

DEP Announces Release of Bituminous Mining Subsidence Report

DEP Announces Release of Bituminous Mining Subsidence Report

HARRISBURG -- The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has released the fourth in a series of ongoing reports detailing the effects of surface subsidence related to underground bituminous coal mining in Pennsylvania. The report, prepared by the University of Pittsburgh, addresses the effects of mining in Armstrong, Beaver, Cambria, Clearfield, Elk, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Somerset and Washington counties.

“This report provides vital information about the significance of bituminous mining on Pennsylvania’s landscape,” DEP Deputy Secretary for Active and Abandoned Mine Operations John Stefanko said. “We will use this information to evaluate the effectiveness of our mining program and consider ways to enhance the program in the future.”

The report, mandated by Act 54, details the amount of structures, water supplies and streams undermined during a five-year assessment period. It also provides an overview of the type of effects to surface structures and surface features, as well as information on how long it took to resolve those issues. Three previous Act 54 reports covered 1993 through 2008.

According to the report, there were 46 underground coal mines active during the reporting period beneath 31,343 acres of land, an 18 percent decline in the amount of land undermined during the previous five-year assessment period. In total, there were approximately 1,250 different “effects,” or incidents reported to DEP during this most recent five-year period by its staff, coal companies or land owners.

Other findings of the report include:

Coudersport Tire Slashings

Coudersport Tire Slashings

This morning, an estimate of 15 local families woke to find vehicle tires that had been slashed and punctured by vandals. 

This is unbelievable and inexcusable. 

Police were very quick to respond, along with local tire and garage companies that interrupted their business day to help change and repair the tires. 

Thank you to all who were helpful. 

 If you have any knowledge of these crimes, please call the local police at 274-8970. We need to be a watchful and united community to deal with this.

DEP Awards $315,000 Grant to Clinton County Conservation District for Agricultural Best Management Practices

DEP Awards $315,000 Grant to Clinton County Conservation District for Agricultural Best Management Practices

WILLIAMSPORT -- The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced that it has awarded a $315,000 grant to the Clinton County Conservation District so it can assist local farmers in the development of agricultural best management practices (BMPs) to prevent future pollution in the Antes Creek Watershed.

“The department is pleased to provide this funding to the conservation district to assist with the development or improvement of agricultural plans, engineering evaluations, and the implementation of BMPs in this high risk watershed to prevent future surface and groundwater pollution,” North-central Regional Director Marcus Kohl said. “We also believe this funding is important to prevent the long-term degradation of this watershed as a tributary to the Chesapeake Bay.”

Land use within the watershed is mostly agriculture and the watershed is at high risk for pollution incidents due to a large number of sinkholes in the area, especially those near or within farm fields, and inadequate manure storage for local farmers during high risk periods.

One such incident occurred in March, where manure was applied on partially snow-covered ground over an unidentified sinkhole. Heavy snow melt transported applied manure into the regional groundwater table. About 12 local residents contacted DEP because their well water appeared and smelled like manure.

The department responded to these complaints, and assisted the residents by providing potable water until the groundwater cleared, which occurred several weeks later.

The Clinton County Commissioners later requested the department conduct an evaluation of all agricultural operations within the western half of the Nippenose Valley to locate open sinkholes, identify high risk practices, and identify best management practices that could be implemented by local farmers to prevent a future pollution incident.

A preliminary watershed assessment completed by DEP’s Waterways and Wetlands program staff has identified of number of additional BMPs that could prevent future pollution in the watershed, including manure storage facilities, roof gutter systems, fencing, milk house waste, agricultural erosion and sedimentation plans, and updated manure management plans.

DEP awarded the grant to the conservation district based on an immediate need for the work to be completed as soon as possible and the district’s history and experience with this type of work.
