Two officers were evening patrolling at Bevans WMA prior to small game opening day. they observed a vehicle traveling slowly and spotlighting the edge of the road. The vehicle was stopped and two freshly killed cockbirds were hidden in a bag in the truck bed. Summonses were issued.

Information about an injured deer on Bevans WMA was received on first day of small game season. The deer was located by an officer and was still alive.

The deer had been shot the evening before and left by the hunter who had unscrewed their arrow, leaving the broad head in the animal. An individual suspected was located. The officer noted the type of broadhead the hunter was using. the officer confronted the hunter with evidence and the hunter confessed to having shot at a buck and hitting the doe by "accident". The hunter admitted removing the arrow but had no explanation for not dispatching the deer or retrieving the deer. Summonses were issued.

On a waterfowl patrol in Cape May County, officers apprehended two hunters hunting after legal hours and possessing lead shot. Summonses were issued.

During a waterfowl patrol in Galloway Twp, an officer noticed a discrepancy in a hunter's HIP number. The hunter had failed to obtain a HIP number and had generated his own.

Another hunter possessed both a resident Pennsylvania and New Jersey hunting license. Summonses were issued.

The Delaware river was patrolled during waterfowl season. A dozen late hunting violations were noted and summonses issued. Another hunter was over the limit on black ducks, over the limit on mallards. There was illegal baiting by goose hunters. Two hunters were found with corn concentrated around their blind. They were issued a summons for baiting waterfowl, which is illegal.

An officer met a bowhunter during extended bow season and inspected his license. The man didn't have a bow permit with him but said he had it at home. They went to his home but did a motor vehicle look up. The date of birth on the man's licenses revealed that the man had borrowed his father's license and did not have an extended bow permit. Also, his driver's license was suspended.
