MD - Two charged with illegal hunting

By Gina Gallucci  - News-Post Staff - 5 Oct 2007

THURMONT The Maryland Natural Resources Police charged two men about 11:35 p.m. Wednesday after they were caught hunting deer on Blue Mountain Road.

William Lawrence Matthews, 26, of Sabillasville, and Darren Jason Hudson, 19, of Thurmont, were stopped after police saw a hand-held spotlight shining out of their vehicle, said Sgt. Ken Turner. Officers found a .22 magnum rifle, ammunition, a hand-held spotlight and deer parts.

Hunting deer after dark is illegal and unsafe, Turner said.

Matthews and Hudson were charged with casting rays of artificial light on fields or woodland while having a weapon in possession capable of killing deer and possession of untagged deer parts, he said.
