The Game Commission said the incident happened early in the morning of November 6 in a parking lot on Keystone Drive in Marshall Township.

The person shot the buck out the driver’s side window of his truck and later loaded the deer into the back of the vehicle and drove away, the wildlife commission said in a statement.

“I know someone knows who this person is,” says game warden Madison Pugh. “Help us to do the right thing and hold him accountable for the deeds he has done.”

Pugh says the man broke several laws during the incident, including going out of business hours for hunting and shooting in an area with many shops.

“[He] have participated in hunting an illegal deer because it is not part of a legal season and hour, and then using a gun to shoot from a vehicle is patently illegal. Using a vehicle to track wildlife is also illegal,” Pugh said.

The truck was described as a white Toyota Tundra crew cab with white fender flares, tinted windows, black rims and a black push rod.
