2 charged with poaching deer in Vermont

WARDSBORO, Vt. (AP) — Two Vermont men have been arrested on a charge of possessing illegal deer.

Vermont Fish and Wildlife wardens said they visited the house last year where the men lived and found three deer in their shed. Twenty-year-old Cody Thompson of Wardsboro said he shot a 3-point buck and a doe using a .22 caliber rifle the night of Nov. 3.

The shed also contained a 5-point buck that 23-year-old Gordon Bills of Wardsboro had previously reported at a check station during archery season, saying the deer was legally harvested. Wardens said a wound consistent with a projectile from a small caliber firearm was discovered. Bills later said he killed the deer with a .22 caliber rifle.

Both men were cited to appear at Windham County Court on Jan. 21.
