ECO nabs bait-pile hunter

State Department of Environmental Conservation officer Ben Tabor received multiple complaints about a deer shot during a big buck contest in the town of Ohio.

Tabor identified where the deer had been shot after finding a gut pile next to a bait pile.

After an interview, the subject admitted to shooting the deer illegally. The deer was seized as evidence and summons were issued for hunting over a pre-established bait pile and the illegal taking of a deer.
