Venago County Hunter Shoots At Bear in Residential Area

VENANGO COUNTIAN PLEADS GUILTY TO SHOOTING BEAR IN RESIDENTIAL AREA

On Nov. 21, the second day of Pennsylvania's bear season, a call from a
concerned citizen sent Pennsylvania Game Commission Wildlife Conservation
Officer (WCO) Clint Deniker to the intersection of 15th Street and Tingley
Avenue in the Franklin Heights area of Franklin, Venango County. The caller
told a dispatcher at the agency's Northwest Region Office that an individual was
shooting at a black bear in a residential area.

WCO Deniker was assisted on scene by Deputy WCO Janet Baker, Land Management
Group Supervisor Jim Deniker, and Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission
Waterways Conservation Officers Mark Kerr and Gregg Pochron.

I don't know how a guy could be proud of taking a trophy that way.

Venago County Hunter Shoots At Bear in Residential Area

I heard that someone shot at a bear in my development from a car just before the bear season opened. The vehicle had NY plates. The bear ran across the road in front of it. My neighbor was on the porch of his house and saw the young man get out of the passenger side of the vehicle. He hollered at the man not to shoot as the bear ran right passed the porch he was standing on. The man shot anyway. We all have the phone number to the park rangers house (he lives less than a mile away) the ranger was down right away and they arrested both of the guys in the car. I don't know what became of them but I sure am glad they were caught.

Get this one....

A few years ago I shot a bear in Idaho across a river. I needed to go get some help to cross the river and retrieve the bear. Before we got back it was dark, and while I tried to cross the river at night, it proved impossible. The next morning I returned only to find my bear gone, a gut pile left and boot tracks. It seems after I shot the bear it rolled to a spot visible from the river. When I went to go get help, some hunters were floating the river in a boat and spotted the bear. They decided to take the bear as their own. Now, how proud could you be of that trophy?! A stolen bear. It was a good on too, about 300lbs, which is big for Idaho bear!

I was angry and still am everytime I think of my very first black bear getting stolen!!
