Game Commission asks for help to solve Perry County poaching incident

Harrisburg, PA

On the morning of Sunday, February 24, 2019 the Pennsylvania State Game Commission says  an antlerless deer was illegally shot from the road, using a compound bow, as a bloody arrow was recovered from the scene, in addition to the deer itself.

The carbon arrow recovered from the scene has red and white fletchings, with the phrase “Don’t Tread On Me” on the white portion of the fletching.

The location of the incident was Dobbs Road, in Saville Township in Perry County. After receiving calls from concerned citizens about a deer that was struggling in a creek and covered in mud, the dispatch center in Huntingdon advised the state game warden.

Anyone with information related to this incident is encouraged to call the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Southcentral Regional office in Huntingdon at (814) 643-1831 or the Operation Game Thief line at 1-888-PGC-8001.
