Illegal Turkey Take - Delaware County

Written By Editor on 5/15/23 | 5/15/23

On May 1, opening day of the spring turkey hunting season, ECOs Doig and Osborne responded to a complaint of a wild turkey shot from a public roadway in the town of Hancock. The Officers arrived at the scene, observed fresh footprints entering private property, and located evidence indicating a turkey was taken. Further investigation led them to the hunter accused of shooting the turkey. When confronted with the evidence against him, the subject admitted to shooting the bird on posted property from the roadway. ECOs issued tickets to the subject for trespass on posted property, shooting from a public roadway, and unlawfully taking a wild turkey. The Officers seized the turkey as evidence. All charges are returnable to Hancock Town Court.
