FOUR CAPE MEN FACE FINES FOR DEER POACHING AT STATE FOREST

By MICHAEL MILLER Staff Writer

6 December 2003

WOODBINE - Four Cape May County men were charged this week with poaching

deer near Belleplain State Forest.

The charges - which carry stiff fines - illustrate a seeming contradiction between protecting deer from illegal hunters while simultaneously working to cull the surging deer population statewide.

Conservation officer Doug Ely said illegal hunters try to get a jump on deer season, which begins next week. Poachers are not doing the state any favors, he said.

"They shot rifles in the middle of the night. They didn't know where their shots were going. It was crazy," he said.
