SAN ANGELO, Texas - A group of hunters were allegedly held at gunpoint by Goodfellow Air Force Base guards on the opening day of dove season.
Local authorities diffused the incident without complications.
The six dove hunters were roaming private farmland near Loop 306, adjacent to GAFB, on Tuesday afternoon when base security forces swarmed, said Greg Simons, owner of Wildlife Systems.
The guards had the hunters lay face down — spread-eagle — for nearly 30 minutes at gunpoint before the San Angelo Police Department arrived, said Simons, who was not on the property when the incident occurred.
"They kind of felt the brunt of being in a hornets nest out there," Simons said.
The hunters met with GAFB security Tuesday morning and game wardens later in the day, Simons said. Everything was fine until security returned around 4 p.m., he said.
