The former sergeant-at-arms of the Vermont Statehouse and former member of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board has pleaded no contest to two deer hunting violations in New Hampshire.
Kermit Spaulding, who was convicted in Vermont of shooting at a deer decoy from his truck in 2003 and was cited for hunting over bait in 2005, pleaded no contest to discharging a firearm on a public road and no contest to carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle on Nov. 11 in Pittsburg, N.H.
It was the fourth conviction for hunting violations in two states over the past six years for Spaulding and the second involving a decoy deer.
Col. Martin Garabedian, the chief warden at New Hampshire Fish and Game, said that one of the two charges that Spaulding pleaded to involved the Vermonter shooting at a decoy deer.
