RIDGWAY - At Tuesday's meeting of the Elk County Solid Waste Authority, the authority continued to take steps in preparing its bid for a can densifier to be used at the Elk County Community Recycling Center at the Stackpole Complex in St. Marys.
Enforcement officer Dave Stubber said he worked on the bid document and it was reviewed by the authority's solicitor, who recommended a few changes in the wording. After the revisions are made and the document is approved, it will be sent out to businesses.
As area rifle hunters take to the woods today in an attempt to bag a trophy buck, Pennsylvania Game Commission Wildlife Conservation Officer Doty McDowell indicated that their odds might be a bit better than normal this year due to bucks continuing to exhibit some rutting behavior.
"Most of the bucks that I'm seeing that I'm basing this information off of, I'm seeing in the middle of the day," McDowell said. "They're just up marking territories, searching out does, and I think the fact that it's happening in the rifle season could actually be a good thing for hunters."
