Don't forget to report you spring gobbler harvest
With spring gobbler season having ended two weeks ago, the Pennsylvania Game Commission reminded hunters who harvested a spring gobbler with their regular tag to report their harvest and that the more than 13,000 hunters who purchased a second spring gobbler license have a mandatory reporting requirement, regardless of whether they harvested a bird using this special license.
To report online, hunters should access the PGC website at www.pgc.state.pa.us, click on "Report Your Harvest" in the upper right-hand corner, click on "You can link to PALS by clicking here," check "Harvest Reporting," scroll down and click on the "Start Here" button at the bottom of the page. Hunters using the toll-free telephone reporting system can call the Interactive Voice Response number, which is 1-855-PAHUNT1 (1-855-724-8681). Hunters still have the option of reporting by mailing their postage-paid card supplied with the purchase of a hunting license.

Capital City Bassmasters of Harrisburg has moved this year's ninth annual Leukemia/Lymphoma Society Bass Classic to Shikellamy State Park, Sunbury. According to tournament chairman Bob Herman, the Saturday, July 14, event is expected to draw a full field of 100 boats because the area of the Susquehanna River is deeper than in Harrisburg, which will allow for the entry of fibreglass bass boats, as well at jet-drive boats.
Fishing will begin at safe light and the weigh-in is 2 p.m. Application forms are on the club website at capitalcitybass.com, and information is available by calling Herman at 717-938-8752.
