Boulder, Colo. (AP) Police say two University of Colorado students were caught with a bow and arrows as they roamed the campus trying to hunt a raccoon.

CU Police Spokesman Lt. Tim McGraw says the students had a camouflage case and a book of hunting tips when an officer saw them lurking in some Bushes near the chemistry building

McGraw says the students told the officer they were trying to kill a raccoon but did not say why. McGraw says “their level of apparent intoxication” may have prompted the pair to go on their bow-hunting outing.

McGraw says 24-year-old Wesley Ashwood and 22-year-old Jared Liedich were arrested just before 3 a.m. Wednesday on suspicion of having a deadly weapon on campus. Both were released from jail after posting bail.
