[Printer-friendly text version]
On November 28th, rangers were running a deer decoy operation near a cemetery along Zion Church Road in the southern end of the park when a man drove up the road in a pickup truck, stopped his truck in the middle of the road, and immediately shot at a decoy white-tail deer from inside the vehicle. The rangers' investigation showed that in addition to the illegal hunting, the man was driving on a suspended license, had open containers of beer in the truck, and had a .075% BAC based on a preliminary breath test. He was charged with numerous hunting and other violations.
