HARRISBURG -- State officials have lifted hunting restrictions in part of the area that was off limits because of the search for Eric Frein.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission reopened for hunting and trapping all of Lehman Township, and the eastern portions of Blooming Grove and Porter townships, all of which are in Pike County.

Hunting Closure

Price, Barrett, Greene, and Paradise townships still remain off limits.

The order also reopens to public use most of the previously closed portion of State Game Lands 180 within Pike County.

The State Game Lands 183 shooting range in Palmyra Township, Pike County, also has been reopened to public use.

Seven townships were closed for hunting earlier this month as police searched the woods for suspected cop killer Eric Frein.

      How does this work, I see pictures after pictures of a lot of troopers just standing around bull-shitting I don’t think that’s called a search for my money. call them in and put them to work, I am starting to think we do need all of them putting in overtime like this.

    I think that’s the dumbest idea ever.. I guess the state police and pa game commission will fell the same way if a civilian gets shot.. The guy is still on the lose with a gun and ammunition… What is the state of pa coming to…glad I moved out of the state… Talk about being corrupt

    Hopefully all the business that lost money the week or so will be able to recover some of it. I agree with you Lloyd a little normalcy is better then none.
