No excuse for this crime. These are adults who knew that this was wrong. Throw the book at them. Maybe have them trampled and pecked by wild deer and turkey.

Glad the DEP protests us from the heinous criminals. Perhaps they should be patroling the streets of Hartford.

How so? No hunting license, hunting on private and/or state land out of season (and possibly not at legal distances from roads and structures). possession of a fireman by a convicted felon, trespassing, etc.

You were saying?

For those who don't realize the "why" of the guy dropping off and picking up, it used to be fairly easy for Game Wardens to catch the poachers. They had to come back to their vehicle, eventually.

Nowdays with cell phones if they see wardens in the area they can call and be picked up on the other side of the property or somewhere else remote.

Depending on the circumstances, they can hide their game and/or weapons and other paraphenellia, marking it's location by GPS so they can return later to retrieve it.

By the way, can someone please give them the memo that they are called EnCon Police in NY because they work for the NY Department of Environmental Conservation.

Having "Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection Environmental Conservation Police" is just dumb sounding. Call them DEP Police if you want, conservation officers was fine with me, heck Texas has the largest program in the nation and doesn't mind calling them Game Wardens even though they perform the same diverse law enforcement as Connecticut. I don't care, but please drop that really stupid name they have now!

I am glad those sorry-*ss excuses for "hunters" got arrested; they all should have the book thrown at them!! They are the reason hunters have a back name. Ethical hunters adhere to the hunting season and don't poach. Those idiots probably didn't even eat the animals they killed... Hope they rot in jail!

They should have gone to Fairfield County. The homeowners there would have welcomed them with open arms and they would have easily found some real trophy deer and turkeys! They're gian rodents there....

The designation "Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection Environmental Conservation Police" comes from our well overpaid State bureaucrats who have nothing else to do but invent non-sense like that. I wonder how many hours and $$$'s were spent comming up with that name. I have no doubt that it'll be changed in a few years, further adding to the confusion.

Why don't you read their website instead of flaming them. You might get an answer to your question....

"Many people do not know what an Environmental Conservation (EnCon) Police Officer is or what they do. Some people may recognize them by their old title of "Game Warden." Traditionally the Connecticut EnCon Police Officer has been charged with the responsibility of enforcing the State’s fish and game laws. As Connecticut has grown and changed, the role of the EnCon Officer in law enforcement has expanded. Duties now include the enforcement of the laws and regulations that concern boating, motor vehicle, criminal and public safety. Connecticut EnCon Police Officers now assist and act as back up for State and Municipal Police Departments in narcotics enforcement, domestic disputes, assaults and many other law enforcement functions and are the primary response units to assist the United States Coast Guard."

What I know is that there are far to many deer in Ct. I can't go in my back yard without picking up deer ticks. I've been treated twice for lyme disease let alone that they eat everything in your yard. I wish these fellows had been working my end of the state.

Why don't you take the hunter's safety course, get a license, and start making Bambi one of your four dinner courses???
