Re: Game farm Damage

That really stinks.

If guns cause crime, mine must be broken.

Re: Game farm Damage

I am sure a well run organization had the proper coverage against losses such as this. Things will be OK.

Re: Game farm Damage

I would sure hope.Hopefully flood insurance was not part of PA'S budget cuts.

Re: Game farm Damage

I called the Game Commission after a similar thing happened during the Jan. 1996 flood, and told them to move the pheasant farm to non-floodplain land, and pointed out that they own a lot of land, and could surely find some acreage on the land they already own that is not floodplain to raise the pheasants. But obviously they didn't take my advice.

Does anyone know if happened other times? Like in 1972 (Agnes)?

Why don't they just MOVE THE PHEASANTS?

If they don't, the same thing will happen again in the future. They must KNOW that, don't they?

It's just basic undergraduate hydrology and common sense. It's the floodplain. Floodplains flood. And if you have pheasants there in cages, the pheasants will die and your equipment will be damaged.

If anyone here knows people in the PGC, bend their ear on this. I tried last time.

They'll say it would cost money, but it only costs money once. And would avoid future flood damage costs.

Re: Game farm Damage

Pretty upset over the loss of some caged birds. Guess you're lucky you were not some of my friends and my family that lost cars, farm equipment, livestock and homes, you might have been really mad then.

If I recall correctly, few pheasants were lost in 96 because that flood happened in the winter.

Re: Game farm Damage

I think they are going to issue coupons for chickens redeemable at the local grocery store.

Hope this doesn't mean they think they are taking pheasants allocated elsewhere from farms that weren't flooded, to disperse in the areas where the lost birds were scheduled to go.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

Re: Game farm Damage

whats the best and worst case scenario from all of this? no late season stocking? only 1 in season stocking? cutting youth pheasant stocking in half? no co-op farms getting birds?

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

Relax. I don't believe the GC will be filling out FEMA forms over lost birds that draw funding away from area flood victims. Everyone's aware this flood did a lot of damage to affairs more important than ''caged birds". They more than likely also share the same prospective, however this is a topic in a small game forum on a hunting board. . . an issue discussed from a bird hunter's prospective.

Re: Game farm Damage

The concern is whether or not the game comission can afford the repairs to the farm to get it back up to full production. Hopefully this will move along the pheasant stamp.
