Each man was charged with hunting deer at night and hunting during a closed season.
ROCKEVILLE, MD-Three West Virginia men were charged last Friday night with illegal deer hunting by officers on surveillance in Montgomery County.
Robert Lee Windsor, 49, of Bunker Hill; Anthony Wayne Shackelford, 53, and Robert William Ice, 46, both of Falling Waters, were stopped after officers noticed their pickup truck passing and slowing along farm fields with its headlights illuminating the landscape. Inside the vehicle, officers found a rifle with a high-powered scope, ammunition, lights and tools to butcher deer.
Each man was charged with hunting deer at night, hunting during a closed season and casting rays with an implement (jacklighting).
The men are scheduled to appear in Montgomery County District Court Jan. 24. If found guilty of all charges, each man could be fined as much as $2,950.
