An 18-year-old from Georgetown was arrested for illegal hunting.
Eugene Clay Myers, of 11309 Highway 58, was charged with hunting without permission, illegal taking of wildlife, deer hunting in a closed season, false reports and tampering with evidence.
A wildlife officer said on April 2 he was contacted that a turkey had been shot without permission on Monger Lane.
A homeowner said he heard a shot, then saw an individual take a turkey from his field. He said the shooter took the turkey to adjacent property on Snow Hill Road, where a white truck was parked.
The officer said he found Myers dressed in camouflage by the truck. He had a shotgun with him.
He acknowledged he had been hunting, but denied he had shot anything. He could not produce a hunting license.
The officer said he used a tracking dog to find evidence that a turkey had been shot. Blood was found on the tailgate of the truck. He said it was from a turkey his friend had shot the day before.
The officer said it was learned through the defendant's cell phone that he had another individual come and pick up the turkey.
