Man charged with hunting while intoxicated
He was piss drunk in the morning, what a winner.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
This dickhead shot more deer than me so far.
Sounds like a great way to hunt
From the thread title, I thought this was because of me.
Heres the story.
On opening day of regular season this year I was entering my property on the line between my property and NY state land.
I saw a car parked about 200 yards down the road, on stateland property.
I stepped into the woods on my property.
While I was loading my gun I heard a voice say, "you are standing between 3 hunters".
I looked toward the voice and saw a guy sitting against a tree on my posted property.
He was dressed in a blue flannel shirt, blue jeans and tan work boots.
He was also drinking a Keystone Ice tall boy.
There was another can next to him, turned over, I assumed it was empty.
This was 7:15 am.
So, I decided to tell him he was 20 yards off the stateland and that he was on my property.
As I started walking I heard a vehicle coming.
I saw that it was a DEC SUV.
So instead I walked out of the woods.
The DEC officer stopped and asked if I had seen anything.
I said, "no deer but that guy is tresspassing and drinking beer".
The officer says, "what? Who? Where?
I pointed at the drinker who was only 40 feet into the woods.
The officer pulled over and got out.
I said, "have a nice day" and walked down the road.
I wanted to hunt, not deal with this situation.
I have no idea what happened.
Also, I did tell the officer it was my property and my info was on the signs. He said, "good enough"
Maybe it was not his morning.
I work nights so I can relate to that. However, I'm not about to get home from work, get blasted, then grab a gun and go hunting. There is a personal responsibility aspect that this person is probably missing.
I guess there are always going to be people that support the stereotype. Unfortunate.
"The hunter was charged with hunting while intoxicated and his hunting license was seized for suspension. He was also charged with two counts of hunting with the aid of bait and illegally taking protected wildlife."
and the nice drunk fella kept his gun .. Thanks MidHudsonnews for the fine reporting ..
what, you cant hunt drunk?
Im not as think as you drunk I am
Notwithstanding the trespass, was he drunk though or did he just drink beer?
And as per the OP article, what a world we are living in where a man can't drink in the woods. I thought this was America.
