    Default WTK: PA Game Warden being Fired

    Did anyone hear about a PA Game Warden being fired several weeks ago? I heard he threatened a legal young hunter in a tree stand with his holstered pistol. The warden put his hand on his pistol and told the hunter things were going to go real bad for him if he didn't get out of the tree stand. The hunter was on private land in Aston Pa and he had written permission to be there. What I heard was everything was captured on a Go-Pro.

    I would like to confirm that this did happen and that it is not a rumor. Also I would like to know what really did happened.

    I was told he was a full time game warden. His first name is Bill.

    The same thing happened to me in broomall back in the 90s.The only difference,
    the cop pulled his pistol and pointed it at me while in the tree, and climbing down.
    It was a broomall cop not a GW.

    Well if there is video footage of the supposed encounter then why are we having this conversation?

    Doesn't sound like a scenario where the Game Warden would be fired !

    If a hunter resists a lawful request to be inspected by a PA Game Warden, things could "go real bad for him". There is usually 3 sides to every story, and we're hearing very little from possibly 1 side.
