OK – Someone driving on Highway 412 near Ringwood in Major County spotted some illegal hunting going on two days before the start of the season.

“This is an unusual case in the fact that there were so many violations, some of them hunting violations, some of them other violations,” said Bill Hale, assistant chief of law enforcement for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife and Conservation.

They also discovered the men were using wheat as bait, which is illegal while hunting doves.

The game warden escorted one of them home to get a driver’s license and found other drug paraphernalia, along with a hawk fan and talons. And, it’s illegal to kill a bird of prey.

“You can’t even possess them,” Hale said. ” You couldn’t even find it and pick it up.”

John Poslick was arrested on several outstanding warrants. All men were ticketed for the hunting violations and could be facing more charges.
