ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Two southeast Alaska hunters have been cited for shooting swimming deer.

Alaska Wildlife Troopers on Saturday seized six deer from the fishing vessel Sumner near Washington Bay on Kuiu (KOO-ee-oo) Island.

Troopers say 49-year-old Robert Martin of Petersburg and a 15-year-old juvenile shot the deer as the animals swam near Mist Cove.

Troopers seized two rifles.

Martin was cited for taking big game from a boat and taking swimming big game.

On Tuesday, the juvenile was issued a summons on counts of taking a big game while swimming, taking big game with a rimfire rifle, and taking big game from a boat.

Troopers say the juvenile shot three of the deer.
