Redneck Jackpot: Man Shoots Deer in Walmart Parking Lot

Redneck Jackpot: Man Shoots Deer in Walmart Parking Lot

Of all the stereotypes associated with rednecks, Walmart and deer hunting probably top the list. The only thing more redneck would be, well, deer hunting in the Walmart parking lot.

Enter Arcangelo Bianco Jr., of Indiana, Pa., who spotted a 10-point passing through the Walmart parking lot while he was on his way to do some shopping. Thinking quickly, Bianco grabbed a handgun from his truck and chased the buck around the corner of the building, firing multiple rounds at the deer. He pursued the deer across a nearby highway, according to the Indiana Gazette, where he finished it off, loaded it into his truck and took it to a meat packing shop for processing.

Law enforcement officials got involved when concerned shoppers—busy with Thanksgiving shopping—called 911 to report a man running through the Walmart parking lot firing a weapon at a deer.

Unfortunately for Bianco, the whole thing was also recorded on video surveillance cameras posted outside of the building. Bianco faces charges for misdemeanor reckless endangerment and a handful of hunting violations. He stands accused of hunting without a license, but not for hunting out of season—he killed the buck last November during Pennsylvania whitetail season.


"Obviously we can't have someone running through a Walmart parking lot shooting at a deer," Jack Lucas, the wildlife officer investigating the case, told the Gazette. "It was the nicest buck I've seen in Indiana County in a couple of years."
