A Fairfield man faces deer poaching charges.
Game wardens were tipped off about three does hanging from a tree in the woods. Wardens say they found the poached deer and a bait pile by a raised shooting shack.
Wardens say they traced the deer to Nicholas Robert, 29. And they say they found a fourth illegally taken deer in a barn on Robert's property. The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says Robert confessed to illegally taking the deer.
Robert could face fines, jail time and the loss of his hunting, fishing and trapping licenses.
