Two men have been charged with several misdemeanors for hunting a doe on a public road in the town of Brutus, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
According to a press release, on Dec. 8, officers responded to a complaint of illegal hunting on a public highway. The caller stated that two men had shot a doe from the road with a .20 gauge, single-shot shotgun and dragged the deer to the edge of a field to tag it.
Upon arrival, officers found 29-year-old Christopher R. Stevens, of Port Byron, and 53-year-old Scott P. Raymond, of Elbridge, at the scene. The DEC said officers also recovered a loaded .22-caliber rifle in the back of their minivan.
