POLICE NEWS: Teen cited for deer hunting violations

A LaGrange teen was cited for several deer hunting violations, according to an Indiana Department of Natural Resources press release.

Indiana Conservation Officer Andrew Harmon received information from a concerned hunter who witnessed another hunter illegally shoot a deer with a firearm around 6:30 p.m. Saturday evening near C.R. 1100 East and C.R. 800 North, the release stated.

Harmon and Indiana Conservation Officer Patrick Heidenreich went to the residence of the hunter, a 15-year-old male juvenile. The juvenile admitted he shot the deer with a muzzleloader, did not fill out a temporary transportation tag and also shot two antlerless deer during the special youth season, according to the release. He did not deliver those deer to a state deer check station or check the deer online within 48 hours of time of kill, the release stated.

The juvenile’s muzzleloader and deer, which was a very small antlerless deer, were seized as evidence, according to the release. The deer was donated to the Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry Program.

The DNR wants to remind hunters that deer firearms season starts Nov. 17 and runs through Dec. 2, with muzzleloader season running from Dec. 8 through Dec. 23, according to the release. A Special Antlerless season will start Dec. 26, running through Jan. 6.
