Caught on Camera

This isn't the first hunter to be caught doing something illegal on camera. One hunter was caught hunting illegally on New York State land and refused to admit it.

Two hunters were seen walking out of the woods after a trespassing complaint. Both denied accessing State land through private property but failed to give any details about where they had been hunting.

Good boy! K9 Cramer was rewarded with a favorite toy for tracking the suspected trespassing hunter.
