2 Vt. teens arrested on deer poaching charges

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says a teenager is facing deer poaching charges that he and a juvenile shot a 4-point buck at night.

Game Warden Stephen Majeski says he received a report Sunday night from a landowner on Missing Link Road in Springfield that he'd seen a vehicle back into his driveway, illuminating a field on the other side of the road and then heard a gunshot.

Majeski found the dead buck and waited nearby in the woods.

About 20 minutes later he arrested 18-year-old Bruce Wells and the juvenile, both of Rockingham. A deer rifle was seized during the investigation.

If convicted, Wells will be subject to fines and restitution of up to $3,000. He could also lose his hunting license for up to three years.
