Ask any Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agent and they will tell you that shooting a deer from your car is a bad idea that could land you in a heap of trouble. Of course, you could also ask the person most recently accused of doing just that.
Rutherford County Sheriff’s Sgt. Will Pinson conducted a traffic stop on Saturday night just before 7:00 to question a suspect accused of shooting and killing a deer after firing a shot from his car window while traveling down Paw Paw Springs Road in Rutherford County. The case was turned over to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and charges could be filed.
