The DEC said 242 of the charges were misdemeanors and included illegal killing of 100 deer, discharging firearms within 500 feet of dwellings, shooting across roadways, possessing loaded firearms in vehicles, taking deer during the bow season without a license and using spotlights to hunt deer at night.

Officers also wrote tickets for trespassing, hunting over bait, feeding deer, possessing the tags of another, illegally transporting deer of another without a consignment tag, hunting without a license and possessing an untagged deer. 

Safety must be the No. 1 priority when using firearms. The rules of fairness and the law should also be followed. The DEC should be commended for pursuing the offenders.
