CT: Drunken hunter arrested

November 4, 2013

From TheBlaze.com

 A Connecticut deer hunter is facing a slew of charges after environmental officers busted him for allegedly drinking while hunting with a handgun and crossbow.

Officers were checking an area in the Charter March Sanctuary where they had previously found a tree stand baited with apples and corn. Connecticut law prohibits baiting for deer because itís considered poaching. This led police to Darin C. Hanna, 48, of Tolland, Conn., The Hartford Courant reported.

Hanna was archery hunting, carrying a crossbow and a loaded handgun. State law prohibits possessing a handgun when archery hunting, police said. Officers also said he didnít have a permit.

Hanna was charged ďwith hunting deer over bait, possession of a firearm while archery hunting for deer, hunting under the influence, possession of a firearm while under the influence, and carrying a handgun without a permit,Ē the Courant reported.

Hanna was released on $10,000 bail. His court date is set for Nov. 14.
