USA -(Ammoland.com)- Two lingering vacancies on the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners have been filled by Michael Mitrick, of York, and Stanley Knick Jr., of Dupont.
Mitrick was selected from Region 6, which includes Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Mifflin, Perry, Snyder and York counties. This position was left vacant when former Game Commissioner Ronald Weaner’s term expired.
Knick was selected from Region 7, which includes Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming counties. This position was left vacant when former Game Commissioner Jay Delaney’s term expired.
