-- On Nov. 23, Francis C. Coburn, 66, of Wardsboro was arrested and criminally cited with shooting at a deer from the road off the back of a pickup truck. Coburn was also criminally cited with taking deer in closed season because he had already shot a buck that rifle season and was tagged out. Hunters are only allowed one legal buck during rifle season in Vermont. The passenger, Mark Smith, also of Wardsboro, was cited with the same offenses. Even though Smith did not shoot or get out of the truck he can be and was cited as if he did under a state statue that applies to someone aiding in the violation. Both appeared in court on Jan. 7.

-- On Nov. 23, Gary Dix Jr., 37, of Putney, was arrested and criminally cited with hunting while under revocation. Dix was caught by Fish and Wildlife Wardens hunting in the woods near his home while under revocation. Dix has lost his privilege to hunt, fish and trap for failure to pay back fines and back child support. Dix pleaded guilty on Dec. 31. He was fined $250 of a possible $716 fine and is still under revocation from any hunting, fishing or trapping. The rifle and hunting equipment used in the violation were seized.

-- On Nov. 23, Eric Greene, 21, and Jessica Beam, 20, both of the Whitingham/Wilmington area were criminally cited with possession of an illegal deer. Beam was also civilly cited with hunting without a license. These charges stemmed from an investigation that found Beam had shot a large eight-point buck in Brattleboro and then purchased her 2013 hunting license after she had harvested the deer and tried to cover it up. Greene, her fiance, was also found culpable in this offense and cited. Both Greene and Beam pleaded not guilty on Jan. 7. If found guilty, they each face a three-year loss of license and more than $2,500 in fines and/or restitution. The deer was seized and became property of the state.

-- On Nov. 25, Leroy Page, 43 of Shelburne, Mass., was criminally cited with failure to report big game within 48 hours of taking. This charge stemmed from an investigation that determined Page had shot a buck in Marlboro on Nov. 17 and took it back to Massachusetts without reporting it. Page was arraigned on Dec. 31. Page failed to appear to his arraignment date and thus a warrant was issued for his arrest. He faces a $256 and will lose his hunting, fishing and trapping privileges for one year if convicted.

-- On Nov. 30, Paul Baltzer, 42, of Whitingham, was criminally cited with two counts of hunting while under revocation and two counts of possession of illegal deer. These charges stem from an investigation which led to evidence showing Baltzer had taken two illegal deer and been hunting while still under revocation from past illegal deer convictions. Baltzer will be arraigned on Jan. 21. If found guilty, he faces more than $5,400 in fines and restitution and will have 20 more points added to his license. This will result in three more years of license loss.

-- On Dec. 1, Craig Washburn, 54, of Putney, was arrested and criminally cited for shooting from the cab of his car at a deer facsimile on a back road in Dummerston. Washburn pleaded guilty on Dec. 31, was fined $429 and will lose his hunting, fishing and trapping privileges for one year. His rifle used in the violation was seized.
