Early on the afternoon of October 13th, Park Police officers Ryan McDermott and William Alton were dispatched to the area of Bald Eagle Hill to check on a suspicious vehicle occupied by two men with bows and arrows. When they arrived, they found that there was nobody in the vehicle. They remained in the area out of sight and eventually the two men emerged from the woods, wearing camouflage and possessing a crossbow. The officers confronted and disarmed them. The two men were informed that they were illegally hunting in a National Park Service area. Both subjects were issued citations for possessing prohibited weapons and released.
