Shotgun Deer Season Ushered In With Arrests in Piatt County

The DNR Director recently called the shotgun deer season the Super Bowl for DNR and the new season was ushered in with arrests in Piatt County.


Last week, there were reports of hunters on a property without permission and on that same property today (Friday) DNR Conservation Police Sergeant John Williamson says they made an arrest of different individuals hunting without permission.



Williamson indicates hunting without permission will be one of their top complaints this time of the year, especially with so many people out. 



Williamson implores hunters to be careful if they are using tree stands and make sure those stands are still secure and to use their harnasses. He anticipates calls this weekend over unsecured bodies in stands that have fallen. 


Additionally, he says know what you are shooting at and make sure you know what is beyond it.
