Five men were charged with illegal deer hunting at night on both public and private lands last Sunday evening.

The men had allegedly been spotlighting deer, shooting from a public road and shooting from a vehicle on Providence Road, partially on private land and partially on Industrial Development land. When apprehended, the men had two eight-point bucks in a truck, one of which was still alive and thrashing around.

All five men were charged with two counts of hunting from a motor vehicle, two counts of hunting from or across a public road, two counts of spotlighting deer and two counts of hunting without permission.

Charged were David William Floyd, 23; Donnie Ralph Laing, 34; Michael Claude Bobineaux, 30; Paul Edmund Gabourel, 43; and Christopher Cornes, 41. Floyd, Laing and Bobineaux were released on $4,300 bond each; and Gabourel and Cornes were released on $4,500 bond.
