Bill Capouillez of the Pennsylvania Game Commission speaks at the Outdoors Forum.

Rather, the Game Commission buys properties with revenues from hunting and trapping licenses, gas and oil leases and timber sales from the game lands, according to Bill Capouillez.
He is the Game Commission's bureau director of wildlife habitat management. "Our intent has always been to look at the sportsmen and the hunting license fees because our sportsmen carry the bulk of the cost associated with the 1.5 million acres (in Pennsylvania), and they promote that hunting and trapping heritage," said Capouillez. Capouillez said if the Game Commission approves a user fee for non-hunters, the fee would be higher than a hunting or trapping license.

William Capouillez has overseen gas leases for the Pennsylvania Game Commission while consulting on them in his free time.
William Capouillez has overseen gas leases for the Pennsylvania Game Commission while consulting on them in his free time. The governor's effort to bring the Game Commission into line was prompted by the agency's decision in January to pay its outgoing director, Carl Roe, a severance package and then consider promoting a deputy, William A. Capouillez, to head the agency. Capouillez, who oversees oil and gas leasing on nearly 1.5 million acres of public game lands, was the subject of an Inquirer article in August examining his prosperous off-hours business negotiating Marcellus Shale gas leases for private landowners. And it said the appointment of Capouillez, who is now under investigation by the state Ethics Commission, would be a "significant error in judgment." And board members also expressed support for Capouillez, whose outside work negotiating Marcellus Shale gas leases for private landowners had been authorized by the commission. Corbett's letter called on the commission to revoke Capouillez's outside employment agreement. He remains employed as the agency's director of the Bureau of Wildlife Habitat Management. Capouillez, in a telephone interview Tuesday, said the agency had no choice but to agree to the governor's demands. "I've never seen or experienced anything like this before," he said of the scrutiny and pressure the Game Commission has experienced. "I don't want the agency to continue to be beat up over this," he said.

The enormity of the acquisition can't be understated, said William Capouillez, who directs the Game Commission's Bureau of Wildlife Habitat Management.
It's one of the biggest purchases in decades, and links one of the biggest game lands in the Commonwealth to the Allegheny National Forest - one of the largest forested public resources in the state. With the acquisition, a huge contiguous block of protected habitat has been created, Capouillez said. But the deal does more than that, he said. Being able to provide the value from timber is an important part of the deal, Capouillez said. It will encourage greater timber harvest in other parts of the state, and the result will be the creation of more early-successional habitat, a component that is severely lacking throughout the state, he said. "This is a commitment by the agency to increase our timber harvest and habitat creation on game lands through a partnership with The Conservation Fund," Capouillez said. Again, the scale of the acquisition is notable, Capouillez said. It's yet another addition to State Game Lands 87, which now tops 15,000 acres but just a few years ago was an 1,100-acre tract. Also, the acquisition creates a contiguous block westward to State Game Lands 195. "How often can you say you've connected two game lands? Capouillez asked. Capouillez said the purchases approved Tuesday, when added to other lands newly approved to be acquired through other methods total nearly 18,000 acres, or 30 square miles. The acquisitions also represent an opportunity to create more early-successional forestland statewide, Capouillez noted.

With the acquisition, a huge contiguous block of protected habitat has been created, Capouillez said. But the deal does more than that, he said. The deal calls for payment to The Conservation Fund to be made either in one lump sum, or in not more than six annual installment payments. Under the agreement, the Game Commission may make the payments in cash, or transfer to The Conservation Fund timber revenue the commission generates on other state game lands tracts.

William Capouillez, the director of the Game Commission's Bureau of Wildlife Habitat Management, on Tuesday announced the commission purchased properties at auction in 2013 that will be added to the state game lands system.
