Nope, It’s Not Legal To Hunt Deer In The Walmart Parking Lot

The Pennsylvania Game Commission would like you to know that it is not legal to hunt deer in the Burrell Township Walmart parking lot, and, by extension, any other Walmart parking lot.

After a four month investigation, the authorities have concluded that, even if you see what they determine to be “the nicest buck [they’ve] seen taken in Indiana County in a couple of years,” it is not appropriate or lawful behavior to leap from your car and chase it around the side of the building while firing multiple shots from your handgun.

The incident in question took place last November and was caught on store surveillance video. The “hunter” faces a misdemeanor charge of reckless endangerment and several hunting violations, including hunting without a license, shooting on or across highways and unlawful killing or taking of big game.
