Hunters seen on hillside on edge of Park Meadows and in Round Valley
November 17, 2010
The Park City Police Department last week received at least two complaints involving hunters in the city, with one of them being reported on the edge of Park Meadows.
In one of the reports, the police were told a man was seen on a hillside close to Meadows Drive shooting at an elk. The man told someone at the scene he had a permit to hunt in the area, according to public police logs. The case was reported at 10:10 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 14.
The day before, meanwhile, four hunters were reportedly seen wearing camouflage clothing in Round Valley. They carried bows, the police were told, and one of them was a young boy. They were walking toward the Park City Medical Center, according to the police.
The Police Department also received a complaint about loud sounds that appeared to be gunshots somewhere close to Three Kings Court. The complaint was filed at 8:03 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13. The police were told there were two sounds, and a woman who made the report told the police the noises might have been from a high-powered rifle. The police classified the sounds as suspicious.
Hunting is not allowed within the Park City limits, but the Police Department has received a series of complaints in the past few months.
