Marcellus gas drilling may shuffle the deck for hunters

When Dan Rabold of Denver heads to his Tioga County hunting camp later this week for deer season he and fellow hunters won’t be able to drive certain dirt access roads to penetrate into state forest land like they used to.

A few of the roads near his camp in Tioga State Forest have been closed since spring because of drilling for Marcellus shale natural gas.
