An abundance of fall foods will have a huge black-bear population on the move as hunters head out November 18th for the opening day of Pennsylvania’s four-day statewide firearms bear season.  Penn’s Woods has been smothered by hard and soft mast this past summer and fall. Leaf-drop also was delayed by uncommonly warm weather into early November. Combined, these conditions have given bears reasons to stay out of dens, and plenty of cover to sneak about the Commonwealth.  The Game Commission estimates Pennsylvania’s bear population at around 20,000, a high-water mark the population has held for the past two seasons, despite substantial harvests.   Hunters who harvest a bear during the four-day general season must take it to one of the Game Commission’s check stations within 24 hours.  To bear hunt in Pennsylvania, a hunter needs a general hunting license, as well as a bear license.

 

Ohesson will host its annual Christmas bazaar from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, November 18th at the senior living community on Green Avenue in Lewistown.  There will be a large a large variety of craft items created by Ohesson residents, along with homemade items, knitwear, ceramics, and baked goods. In addition, several vendors will be present.  The bazaar raises funds for residents’ Christmas presents and activities.  For more information, call 717-242-1416.
