I get a magazine called "Pennsylvania Game News", it is published by the Pennsylvania Game Commission. This month there was an article about a bear camp in the state. The camp has harvested 150 black bears over the years. I think it started around 1980 or so. The camp is located in very rugged terrain. The members get all of their bears the hard way by putting on drives. PA does not allow hunting over bait so these guys must work hard for their bears. The drivers come in at the end of the day bleeding from scratches and have tattered clothes. It was an interesting article about hunting bears the hard way.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Saw that crew at the bear check station a few times. They really do show up bloody from pushing through the nasty stuff. Nice article.

The R.C. Luce Bear Camp. I just read that article this morning while sitting on the throne Nittany. One hundred fifty bears out of that camp.

I tried that and they wanted an account number and a password. I looked at my magazine and did not see an account number. I did not see where a non-subscriber could read an article, maybe you could guide us through that Lugnut.

I'll be dang. I may have seen these guys.
If they bark like dogs while pushing, probably them.

Pa bear hunting is a group thing to have consistent success.

If you go to this site: PA Game News Online anyone can view any Game News magazine older than a year. I clicked on several older issues and it worked.

When I tried to open any issue newer than a year the site asked me for an account number and password like it did to you.

It said:

To view this publication, please enter your E-mail address and Password below:

Account Number:

Your password is 'pagamenews':

I tried entering my email address and the twelve digit account number above my address on the magazine mailing label. I used the password listed. I kept getting the error message: "The username (XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX) or password you entered is not valid. Please check your login information and try again.


Eh...wot?

It takes me right to the login page when I click on a newer issue, and I am a subscriber. It won’t let me view any of the pages of the newer magazines. I get this screen:

When I enter the correct information I get this screen:

It looks like they have magazines online going back to 2008.

I wish the PGC would get their act together and fix their website.
