Tobyhanna Lake in Pennsylvania’s Monroe County may have ice when other state waters don’t

Unlike the stalwart servicemen and women at the Tobyhanna Army Depot on the cold Pocono Plateau, I don’t have to get up at reveille to start my day.

Pennsylvania bear hunters take fewer than 3,000 bruins for first time since 2007

Preliminary bear harvest figures indicate that hunters in Pennsylvania harvested 2,906 bears during all seasons in 2023. This is the first time in 16 years that the harvest has dropped below 3,000 bears.
The harvest was below 3,000 in 2007 and also in 2002, but you have to go way back to 1999 to find harvests consistently below 3,000.

Asian longhorned ticks are in Pennsylvania, but no cause for concern yet

Asian longhorned ticks are the latest tick to surface in Pennsylvania but aren’t yet cause for alarm, according to Penn State entomologist Michael Skvarla.
Although the species was in the news recently in connection with the deaths of several cows in Ohio, Skvarla said there’s little evidence that longhorned ticks pose a threat to humans.
