FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) - A Greenfield man faces a charge that he was using an illegal weapon while deer hunting over the weekend.

Indiana Conservation Officers were called to part of Franklin County after two archery hunters heard a gunshot ring out around 8 a.m.

The conservation officers found Troy Hancock nearby. Officers say Hancock admitted that he shot and killed a female deer with a Winchester rifle in order to put meat in his freezer.

Conservation Officers charged him with hunting on property without permission, failure to procure a valid deer hunting license and hunting with an illegal device.

Deer season opened October 1 to archery hunters while firearm season does not begin until Nov. 12.

“Even if firearm season was in this particular rifle he was using is still illegal” stated Indiana Conservation Officer Corey Norrod.
