Hunting permitted in manhunt zone. What could go wrong??!

Manhunt for trooper slaying suspect won't keep deer hunters from woods in bow season

By Reuters
Monday, Sept. 29, 2014, 8:42 p.m.


EAST STROUDSBURG The manhunt for the suspect in the ambush that killed a Pennsylvania trooper and wounded another won't stop the opening of deer-hunting season in the Pocono Mountains, one of most prized spots in the Northeast for game, authorities said Monday.

Beginning Saturday, bow hunters can enter the deep woods of the region even if the search for the suspect, Eric Frein, is still under way, more than three weeks after the Sept. 12 shooting.

Hundreds of officers, supported by armored vehicles and helicopters, have combed the forests of northeastern Pennsylvania looking for the 31-year-old survivalist.

The extended operation has raised questions about whether the wave of deer hunters who descend on the Poconos in early autumn might compromise safety or the effectiveness of the search.

Saturday marks the beginning of the season when hunters can take deer with bows and arrows, and state police and game commission officials have given them the go-ahead. The fall season will run through Nov. 15.

3. LOL

I am hoping this means that the State Police apprehend him before the hunters hit the woods. Maybe that is their optimistic plan.

5. People in NEPA hunt all year round.

I knew several people who poached. You're not going to stop the guys going into the woods with their guns.

6. What could go wrong. Oh boy, that part of the country you are taking......

your life in your hands going fishing this time of the year.

I can see the Borowitz report now.
Trooper slaying suspect killed when deer hunter takes a sound shot.
State police have confirmed that the suspect in the trooper slaying was killed when a hunter mistakenly thought he was a deer. A local resident spokesman expressed relief that the manhunt was finally over citing that he knew justis would eventual be served. Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Corbett thanked the deer hunter and vowed to present legislation extending deer season any time a manhunt was in progress. Corbett then went about the more important task of getting re elected.

Don't you think that the deer have already been spooked a bit? I'm not sure that I would waste my time hunting in that area if I did hunt.

11. They need to keep all citizens out of that area!

Even if they catch Frein, booby traps and rigged up explosives could continue to be a danger.

12. 2 explosive devices were not yet set to go off

The police said he apparently left the area in a hurried manner and left them behind before they were set to go off.
