Felon prohibited from hunting
A Georgetown man with a prior felony conviction faces weapons charges after agents say he was hunting with weapons Nov. 15.
Bruce A. Taylor, 57, has a prior felony conviction that prohibits him from owning or possessing weapons, said Sgt. Gregory Rhodes of the Division of Fish & Wildlife Enforcement.
"Some hunters with a past felony on their records may not stop and think that this means they cannot legally go hunting with a firearm or bow," he said.
Agents discovered Taylor was in violation during a deer hunter check in Redden State Forest.
Taylor was charged with 13 counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited and one count of possession of ammunition by a person prohibited. He was released on $7,000 unsecured bond pending trial at a later date.
