PA Game Commission Makes Deals With Coal & Gas Companies In McKean, Bradford, Indiana and Lycoming counties


The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today approved energy-development agreements on three tracts of state game lands.

Amerikohl Mining Inc., of Butler, Pa., was approved to remove an estimated 15,840 tons of Lower Kittaning coal under about 13 acres on State Game Lands 276 in Burrell Township, Indiana County.

Amerikohl is developing a surface mining project for coal on private land situated between State Game Lands 276 and 153. Allowing that project to extend onto the game lands for complete removal of the Lower Kittaning coal crop will eliminate the potential for future downgradient mine discharges on game lands.

The board also approved an agreement with Chief Oil & Gas LLC, of Dallas, Texas, to develop the Game Commission’s oil and gas rights under about 499 acres of State Game Lands 36 in Franklin and Monroe townships, Bradford County.

Chief has a strong, privately owned oil and gas lease position surrounding this portion of game lands, and has the ability to develop the reserve without any surface disturbance to the game lands.

This agreement will result in a one-time bonus payment of about $1 million.

The board also approved a five-year option to enter into an agreement with Seneca Resources, of Pittsburgh, to develop the Game Commission’s oil and gas rights under about 2,151 acres of State Game Lands 133 in Gamble, Lewis and Cascade townships, Lycoming County. Seneca also has the ability to develop the reserve without any surface disturbance to the game lands.

As part of the agreement, Seneca will transfer to the Game Commission an 80-acre interior tract within State Game Lands 62 in Hamlin Township, McKean County.

Everyone agrees that the best deer hunting in PA was 20? 30? 40? years ago? I believe they were drilling for oil and mining for coal 20? 30? 40? years ago. Hence, the oil drilling and coal mining are not the issue. It's the game commission allowing hunters to take 4 DEER PER YEAR and the hunters go ahead and take 4 DEER PER YEAR. THEN THEY B**CH BECAUSE THE DEER ARE ALL GONE!!
