Big game violation

Zachery R. May, 21, Markleton School Road, Markleton, was charged Nov. 21 with taking/killing big game beyond daily season limits on Nov. 19. A Pennsylvania Game Commission officer said he received information that a black bear may have been tagged with a license that was purchased after the bear had been harvested. The officer said May told him that he lost his license on Nov. 19, continued to hunt and shot a bear at 4:45 p.m., and then traveled to Hoover’s Outfitting and Supply and purchased a replacement license. He said he returned to the carcass, tagged the bear and brought it to the bear check station. According to court documents, there was no record of May purchasing a hunting license prior to bear season.
