The Maryland Natural Resources Police charged a Hagerstown man with
several hunting violations Monday.
James Michael Mazingo, 39, was charged with nine counts of exceeding
the bag limit of antlered deer, one count of failing to obtain a bonus
antlered deer stamp and five criminal counts of making a false entry
into public record, police said.
Mazingo allegedly killed 15 antlered deer - nine more than the
combined deer season's bag limit of six, police said. He allegedly
checked the extra deer into public record on his 15-year-old daughter's
Police said each hunter may take two antlered deer during each deer
season - archery, muzzleloader and firearms - for a total of six. A
bonus antlered deer stamp is required to take a second antlered deer.
Police began investigating the number of antlered deer Mazingo had
killed after a citizen contacted the Maryland Natural Resources Police.
