N.C. men accused of hunting in state park

Nov 11, 2006

MULLENS, W.Va. -- Three North Carolina men have been accused of illegally bow hunting deer with tree stands in a state park.

Scott Jarvis of Mebane, N.C., Russell Wiley of Summerfield, N.C., and his brother, Rocky Wiley of Kernersville, N.C., were cited for illegal hunting by a conservation officer on Friday and released, said Scott Durham, superintendent of Twin Falls Resort State Park near Mullens. The trio also were cited for illegally riding all-terrain vehicles in the park.

Conservation Officer 1st Class Tennis Cook with the state Division of Natural Resources saw the men allegedly bow hunting Friday morning about a quarter mile inside the park, Durham said.

Durham said the men claimed they did not know they were within the park's boundaries, which are marked with signs. They did have nonresident hunting licenses.

The men told authorities they were hunting deer but they had not killed any, the superintendent said.

Each man faces a $300 fine and a possible 10 days in jail for each charge, Durham said.
