Barton man charged with poaching

Posted: Updated:
CRAFTSBURY, Vt. -

A Vermont man could face jail time for allegedly poaching in Craftsbury.

Wardens with Vermont Fish and Wildlife say Kenneth Bacon, 30, of Barton, was seen shooting from his vehicle on a public road last month. He fled the scene before wardens could catch him.

Bacon was apprehended in Barton Saturday. He was issued tickets and citations for having a loaded rifle in a motor vehicle, shooting from a motor vehicle, attempting to elude a game warden, taking deer in closed season and reckless endangerment.

He's due in court Jan. 28. If convicted, he could face jail time, fines and loss of his hunting license.

Bacon had already shot a deer during hunting season. The legal limit for deer during November rifle season is one.
