I have read a number of posts about lack of response from the pgc when called about illegal activities. I had reason to call them today about something my son found in butler county. I called the nw region office, listened to the prompts, and dialed 0 to report possible illegal activity. I told them what i knew, gave them my sons #, and they said they'd contact him. He called me in less than an hour to tell me they were at his location and the situation was handled.

This is the first day of duck season down here, so it wasn't like it was just some off day when nothing else was going on. Mebey it's just here in the nw region, but this quick response really didn't suprise me, it's what i usually get when i call.

I've had to call them before about an illegal deer kill I stumbled upon and they were out to my location within an hour.

I have always had a quick response also when ever dealing with the PGC and a WCO has always got back to me. On the other hand I called and left a message for the Ohio Wildlife about an issue I had about a month ago and never received a call back.

I had to call about an illegal baiting issue I stumbled acrossed on the property I hunt. Regional HQ called me back in a couple of hours, and the local WCO called the next day. We got the guy that night hunting over the bait we found the previous day.

Glad that ended well and
for doing the right thing!

Unfortunatly in our case things didn't turn out so well. My son found a nice 9 point dead in a field he was planting. The field was disced up pretty smooth so everything showed up very clearly. He followed the blood and tracks back twoards the road thinking a hunter might be lookiing for thier deer, which was over a slight rise and not visable from the road. But 20 yds from the road the blood stopped, and there was a gob of hair and the tracks leading to and away from that spot. Somebody shot that buck as it stood there, arrow went in at base of neck and oit right behind the elbow. They also found tennis shoe tracks from the road to the carcass, so obvioisly the shooter followed the buck and knew it was dead. My son found the deer about 1 oclock so i doubt anyone was coming back to claim it.

What a senseless act.
