TX: Citations issued to ETX hunters after illegally harvesting deer with bolt-action rifle
October 29, 2013
NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TEXAS (KETK) — Two Nacogdoches County game
wardens were checking bowhunters prior to rifle deer hunting season
when they noticed heavy traffic going through a gate. The wardens
entered the property and contacted an individual cooking deer meat
in a camp over an open fire.
After the wardens located a
skinning rack with deer hair, fresh blood, and a backstrap of a deer
in a plastic bag, they investigated the camp further and found a
hidden deer head from a buck with a five to six-inch spread.
Citations were issued and a case is currently pending against the
