Bedford County Game Warden Jeremy Coughenour reports that two Baltimore, Md. residents have pleaded guilty to multiple charges stemming from two separate road-hunting incidents. Both men were charged with illegally shooting two deer through the truck window at two separate locations. A landowner witnessed the violation and located the vehicle at a nearby hunting cabin. If not for the witness and her persistence, both of these crimes would have gone unpunished.
