Mike might have a point. On the heels of his post comes a story out of New York State regarding "Operation Jackhammer." To date, 107 people in the Hudson Valley, Capital Region (Albany), Catskills and Adirondacks have been charged with more than 250 offenses. They included 27 instances of deer jacking and 48 instances of hunters using lights, but not yet killing deer when caught. Approximately 40 guns were confiscated and 42 illegally taken deer were recovered. The NYDEC was suprised at the large amount of poaching that took place during the six-week nighttime sweep.
