Hudson Valley Man Accused of Illegally Killing Deer, Bear
A Hudson Valley hunter is accused of illegally killing a deer and a bear.
Recently, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation officers were checking hunting camps as part of opening day patrols. While at a camp in Wawarsing, the officers allegedly noticed bags of feed lying around the camp.
The ECOs questioned the property owner about the feed and he took them to a hunter's tree stand where several piles of feed were scattered nearby.
The officers learned that a hunter killed a deer and a bear that morning nearby and brought the carcasses to a taxidermist.
The ECOs soon found the hunter and after a brief interview he admitted to hunting near the feed, officials say.
The deer and bear were seized as evidence. The unnamed hunter was issued tickets for hunting with the aid of pre-established bait, illegally taking a black bear, and illegally taking a deer.
