Man Charged For Hunting In A Walmart Parking Lot

BURRELL TOWNSHIP (KDKA) – An Indiana County man is facing several charges, after wildlife officials say he went deer hunting in a Walmart parking lot.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission says 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 near Old William Penn Highway.

The alleged shooting happened last November, while Bianco was shopping at the store, and then saw the buck in the parking lot.

According to charging documents, 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.”

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.

Sounds like the Ruidoso Wal-Mart parking lot, except we have giant elk that just stand there in front of your truck.

Hope they throw the book at the idiot.

Calling what he did “hunting” in the title should be a crime in itself.

One stop shopping. Shop, buy ammo, and stock the freezer all at the same time.

LOL! I live in Indiana County. We have a huge deer population, and the two weeks after Thanksgiving is deer hunting season. In fact, the Monday after Thanksgiving, the schools are closed for the opening of deer season.

We take our deer hunting seriously around here! :-))

Was what he did smart? No

Was anyone harmed (other than the deer)? No

Do we want people doing this? Not really. Just hand him a “stupid ass” card and tell that he could be facing prison time if he had hit anyone.

I need to add that an asphalt parking lot is a great place to hunt deer. They don’t have good footing and have a hard time getting away.

Whole businesses, industries, towns and municipalities shut down here in PA when Deer Hunting Season starts. When I had my Family Farm Business for 22yrs, I could count on 50-60% of the guys taking 5-6 days off.

I just adjusted my business model to accommodate them, although I don’t hunt or eat deer meat. I didn’t have any qualms whatsoever, since they used it for their own families’ tables and/or donated some to local food banks.

Absolutely. Clear sight lines, too.

Field dress 'em right there, throw the guts in a blue shopping cart and load up. Don't forget to run inside for some jerky spices and to replenish your ammo.
