A criminal defense may aid California hunter facing charges

Summary: A criminal defense may aid California hunter facing charges

A hunter says he was only trying to prevent additional suffering and potential accidents when he killed a deer. However, the California bowhunter does admit that he knew he was within 150 yards of an occupied dwelling when he did so. The man was captured on neighborhood surveillance video. Police have charged the man with various crimes, and he may be contemplating his best criminal defense

Although he claimed that the first shot was in a proper hunting area, the man was inside of prohibited hunting zones when he shot the arrow that killed the deer. He allegedly followed the wounded deer into an occupied neighborhood and sent another arrow that eventually killed the deer. The man claims that he waited until the animal was in front of a wall in order to ensure that no person would be harmed by his arrow.
