A Pennsylvania man is facing several charges after wildlife officials say he went deer hunting in a Wal-Mart parking lot, according to CBS Pittsburgh station KDKA-TV.
The Indiana Gazette reports 40-year-old Arcangelo Bianco Jr. fired several rounds from a handgun at a 10-point white-tailed deer from within the Burrell Township store's parking lot, and then bagged the animal.
The alleged shooting happened last November, while Bianco was shopping at the store and then saw the buck in the parking lot.
The deer ran around a corner of the store, and Bianco hopped out of his truck, gun in hand, and "began firing multiple rounds at the deer," according to charging documents obtained by the paper.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission says Bianco faces a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment as well as several hunting violations, including hunting without a license, shooting on or across highways and unlawful killing or taking of big game.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for May 1
Jimmy...! Hold my beer!
FR needs a “LIKE” button.
If you’ve ever shot a 10-point buck in a Walmart parking lot, you might be a redneck.
Ha! FR needs a “LOVE IT! ROTFLMAO!” button!
Gov. Cuomo was wrong. You DO need a large magazine to hunt deer.
It beats sitting in a tree stand all day freezing your butt off.
Just sit in your pickup with the heater going and wait for the deer to come charging through the cars.
Is baiting allowed there?
I think someone is about to lose their carry permit.
i can bag a 10-point buck @ walmart now?
whoa... they’ve really grown since my last visit
and of course, i’m sure they can cover all my field dressing needs
... and the crime is what?
I wonder if he had one
It doesn't say if alcohol was involved, but I'd hate to think the guy had judgment that impaired when he was sober.
Only in Pennsylvania
so... at participating stores while supplies last?
Perfect opportunity for a guiding service!
“I offer Momma a day of shopping while you and I hydrate and hunt from the comfort of a climate controlled enclosed portable deer stand. Endless supply of snacks available for purchase.”
This doesn’t sound like hunting to me, it sounds like an encounter with a deer in a parking lot. Were the conditions dangerous to take the shot— what was beyond the target? Was there a potential risk to others if the deer were allowed to remain in the parking lot— or go into a nearby road and risk injury and property damage to others?
I wouldn’t write this guy off just yet.
Y’all sure it wasn’t Target?
Yabut...he hit it...with a pistol. So he must be a very proficient moron.
But did he field-dress it right there?
