Hagerstown man charged with hunting violations

January 25, 2006

The Maryland Natural Resources Police charged a Hagerstown man with several hunting violations Monday.

James Michael Mazingo, 39, was charged with nine counts of exceeding the bag limit of antlered deer, one count of failing to obtain a bonus antlered deer stamp and five criminal counts of making a false entry into public record, police said.

Mazingo allegedly killed 15 antlered deer - nine more than the combined deer season's bag limit of six, police said. He allegedly checked the extra deer into public record on his 15-year-old daughter's hunting license.

Police said each hunter may take two antlered deer during each deer season - archery, muzzleloader and firearms - for a total of six. A bonus antlered deer stamp is required to take a second antlered deer.

Police began investigating the number of antlered deer Mazingo had killed after a citizen contacted the Maryland Natural Resources Police.
