A Delaware man was convicted for multiple hunting violations after neighbors reported a dead deer on his front patio.
Forget the welcome mat or rolling out the red carpet. When Delaware game officers arrived at the residence of Jeremy W. Nacchio last week, a dead deer was on the front patio to greet them.
According to Delaware Online, an anonymous tip led the state’s Division of Fish & Wildlife Enforcement Natural Resources Police to Nacchio’s home where they discovered a dead whitetail buck on the porch. Upon questioning, he was charged with eight hunting violations.
Nacchio later pleaded guilty to hunting without a license, illegally hunting on Sunday, possession of unlawfully taken antlered deer and failure to tag an antlered deer.
As a result, Nacchio will have to pay $2,800 in fines and court costs, and his hunting license has been revoked for three years.
Hopefully by then he will have learned his lesson, if not a little discretion.
