HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania Game Commission is lifting temporary restrictions on hunting and trapping activities in the area affected by the search for the man suspected of killing a state trooper.

The capture of Eric Frein on Thursday night means that hunters and trappers who were previously barred from hunting in several northeastern Pennsylvania towns were able to resume hunting at midnight Friday.

Turkey season opens Saturday.

Hunting and trapping seasons had been temporarily halted in seven townships in Monroe and Pike counties as a result of the manhunt for Frein. Restrictions were taken off the towns in Pike County last week.

Frein was captured after a seven-week manhunt. He’s charged in the slaying of Cpl. Bryon Dickson in September.
