Sheriff’s Deputies and New York State Environmental Conservation Police December 17 arrested 34-year-old Travis Wildey of Walton.  He’s charged with criminal contempt, killing an illegal deer, killing a deer by illegal means, failing to tag a deer and failing to report a deer.

Authorities say they investigated a complaint that Wildey used a rifle to shoot a deer while there was a temporary order of protection against him prohibiting from possessing a rifle.

He was released and ordered to appear in Walton Town Court at a later date.
