The Game Lands are managed by William A. Capouillez , Director of Bureau of Wildlife Management "The purpose of this study is to evaluate the PGC?s administration and use of these resources and assess whether the PGC could and should increase revenues from these resources in order to offset recent declines in revenues from hunting licenses." But while the Penn State was evaluating the administration of the game lands resources, the PGC official in charge of these game lands was also a consultant for Penn State at the same time? The Legislative Budget and Finance Committee contracted with Penn State to do a Resource Audit of the Game Commission's Bureau of Wildlife Habitat, Directed by William Capouillez. However Penn State's Agricultural Department listed William A. Capouillez as their #2 gas consultant on this web page in January 2010.

William Capouillez, a retired Pennsylvania Game Commission official, will pay a $75,000 fine over his side business.
While he was director of the Bureau of Wildlife Habitat Management, Capouillez negotiated gas leases with drilling companies on behalf of private landowners while overseeing Game Commission leases with the same companies. He agreed to the fine in exchange for no further action by the state Ethics Commission, but the head of the ethics panel said Capouillez still faced possible criminal charges. The Ethics Commission said the $75,000 penalty represented just a portion of the amount Capouillez earned since 1996, when he began operating his business.


William Capouillez, director of the Bureau of Wildlife Habitat Management, said other states, such as West Virginia, sell user permits to use their lands.
The permit could also raise additional revenue for the agency, he said, noting that the range permits generated more than $300,000 last year.


William Capouillez is paid $76,206 as director of the Bureau of Wildlife Habitat Management, the department that deals closely with natural gas companies seeking to tap gas reserves under public lands.
At night, Capouillez works as an oil and gas mineral lease consultant for individuals seeking to lease their lands for the development of natural gas resources. He again works with the same companies he does during the daylight hours, except now Capouillez receives a cut of the revenues and royalties generated by leaseholders, Metcalfe said. The concerns about Capouillez's moonlighting were first raised in a 2008 story in The (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat. The Philadelphia Inquirer explored the questions surrounding Capouillez's outside employment earlier this summer. The Tribune-Democrat reported that after working hours, and described only as a geologist and not as a state employee, Capouillez conducts seminars for landowners who have been approached by natural gas companies wanting a lease. If they sign with him as their agent, Capouillez says he will get them higher lease income and better terms. In return, he and his private company, Geological Assessment and Leasing of McVeytown, would get 25 cents of every dollar Capouillez negotiated for the landowner above the rate first offered by the gas company, plus 50 percent of royalties above the set rate. Capouillez told the Tribune-Democrat that he does not routinely reveal that he is a state employee because he fears that would create a conflict of interest. Records provided by the Game Commission show that Capouillez has been proceeding with the blessing of his superiors, thanks to a review completed in 1996. That review describes Capouillez's outside employment as a consultant to private property owners. That review indicates that Capouillez "must be able to discern and consistently check on potential conflicts of interest prior to initiating employment." The review also states that Capouillez is barred from using data or information he gleans from his state job to benefit his second job. A spokesman for the Game Commission did not respond to a request for information detailing if the Game Commission had ever determined that a particular job proposed by Capouillez was not permissible.
