BEAVER COUNTY, Pa. —

Signs that were posted in the wrong area of a Beaver County park had park-goers worried about their safety.

A sign making walkers aware that hunters will be allowed in Old Economy Park for a three-week span starting Wednesday was mistakenly put very close to a play area.

A Beaver County commissioner said the sign was put in the wrong place and the sign has been taken down.

The commissioner said they won't allow hunting on any walking trails, only heavily wooded areas. He said new signs will be put in the correct areas this week, as well as "No Hunting" signs in the park.

Ricky Wagner was one of the walkers who said he was worried about the hunting.

“It’s scary that they would allow guns in the park, so close to the playground and walking trails,” Wagner said.

Wagner said he’s started an online petition to end the hunting law before it begins.

“This just isn’t right. Think of the kids and the adults. There are plenty of places to hunt, you don’t have to do it in a county park,” Wagner said.

Other walkers in the park told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that they’re not worried about hunters.

“I’m not worried at all because hunters know their boundaries. This is a big area and they’ll be far away from me,” one walker said.

Marcinkiewicz reported that to hunt in the park hunters must sign in and pay, so it brings in money to Beaver County. Officials said about 80 hunters have signed up so far.

I love how this moron puts bells on his shoes and then turns around and wears a brown jacket. Brilliant! Not to mention that this is for flintlock and bow season. I can't even remember the last time there was an accidental shooting with either of a non hunter

Welcome to democratic liberal America.
Actually did you take a second to read that sign and look at how its positioned? Does the sign need to say "with guns" or could they have left it at "hunters will be in the park, enter at your own risk"...the statement "with guns" in light of how society is now, is poor planning and something that should have been addressed prior to placing the signs. Second look where the sign was placed, what IDIOT puts a sign like that in front of a playground, again in today's society whether you agree with how things are or not you need to have a brain and know that sign is gonna cause a stir. Add with this a very urbanized area full of undereducated individuals, in terms of hunting and the tools hunters use for given seasons. Sure we know the likely hood of them getting stuck by an arrow or shot by a flintlock are low, they dont know that and likely dont even know what a flintlock is.

A local "park" i love to hunt had a similar issue to this a couple years ago when they put up signs notifying locals that hunting would be allowed, but after a simple open house education session for any locals who wished to voice their concerns or ask the park officials questions, people really came around.....first week people would turn when they saw you coming or completely avoid parts of the park, I now have little old ladies tell me what trails they will be walking and where the deer normaly are/go when they are walking....essentially I got a couple local grandma's doing deer drives for me lol Thats all it takes some time, a little education of the locals can go a long way and may just completely change perception; but most of you have already judged this guy based solely on his bells and jacket, sure not my flavor but neither is some of the stuff I have seen some of you post in trophy pics......I dont think any less of any of you based on those trophy pics tho!

I am not some anti, complete opposite, but I am not so close minded and ignorant to really not see the real issue here....and its not "liberal america" or some "liberal" getting his panties in a bunch, its some IDIOT printing a sign with poor wording then having another IDIOT go put these signs up and having one end up on/near a playground.

While i see your point, I have a Strong hunch the creator, and the placer of that sign was a liberal that voted for Daddy Obama. These people are uneducated but in their mind they know everything.

These same people will be voting for the gun ban vote i suspect will be coming soon.

These same people tend to be the ones teaching our children first hand, and through the liberal media.

I will not sugar coat it whatsoever and I will never come to any compromise of my rights, especially in this case, my 1st, 2nd, and 4th amendment rights. This is the START people. If we get soft and passive, we will fail. Maybe this ends in another civil war? And maybe that's not a bad thing. I will personally be on the front lines if my rights are revoked.

Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves. Its time to get tough and TAKE BACK AMERICA!

Uneducated you say? Hum.. Dude I am an independent, pretty much don't trust or like either side, but for you to come on here and say ANYONE is uneducated cause they don't feel the way you feel is IGNORANT! Your probably one of those guys who can't find and kill a deer in PA either.

My comment towards uneducated people was not directed towards you, I apoligize if it came off that way. While re-reading my post it sounded harsher than was intended.

I do however believe that these people that want to take away hunting and firearm rights are uneducated. Maybe a better term would be Mis-educated. The world will not be a happy go lucky fairy land with a ban on AR's or taking away hunting land.

I will specifically mention the California Senator, if you did not see her speech in response to the NRA, i urge you to look it up. This woman is miseducated and has the liberal fairy mindset. These people are socialist, and communist and feel as if we will have a perfect country with more programs, regulations, laws, spending, etc. Essentially they want us to all be little sheep and follow them. I for one am not a follower and I know you are not either. I will always protect my family against any evil by any and all means necessary.

Just for the record, I am considered a moderate at best, but lean towards being independent. I am by no means a right wing extremist- although i can see easily how someone would think so given my stance on gun control vs rights.

No attack is meant towards you whatsoever 25ftup, And i don't mean to offend either. Simply stating my strong opinion, based solely on facts and history, and I have the nerve to also say my opinion is correct. We as a country are soft, and we need to be leaders and take control of this situation. Not only being hassled for hunting in a park, but more so the current debate ''puppet show'' on gun control. I know you and I are on the same side, I suspect I'm simply a bit more extreme and out spoken on gun rights. Again, no harm meant.

Oh and my freezer is full :)

I too am very concerned. I have no need for a AR type rifle, but I do have semi automatic shotguns and semi automatic rifles , do I know where it stops? NO! I also drew a lottery ticket to hunt a park close to my home in January, can't wait to see how that works out with the protesters.

I hope you get the permit!

If protesters are present, stay calm but Never back down! Remember to have your local WCO on speed dial, as hunter harassment is against the law!

We got it the first time you posted it, did it need to be posted "4" times?
