Time for local deer to run and hide, it’s the start of deer hunting season.
The Department Of Energy And Environmental Protection has reissued warnings to hunters, including that they should wear bright-colored clothing, they should not hunt on private property without permission, and they need to have all the proper deer tags and permits.
It’s only day one, and DEEP’s Environmental Conservation Officers say they’ve been busy.
“Our officers have made several arrests for several types of illegal hunting activity. One of our officers arrested a hunter that was violating some wildlife laws and was a convicted felon with a firearm,” Col. Kyle Overture, commander of DEEP’s Environmental Conservation Police, said.
