When the driver saw multiple turkeys, he turned around and was captured using a crossbow to shoot at them from his car. That’s when the turkeys scattered and the crossbow bolt smashed into the business’ window, leaving a spiderweb of cracks, before falling into the grass.
The Game Commission says surveillance cameras managed to catch the alleged poacher’s face when he went to pick up the arrow. He’s described as a young white male about 6 feet tall with short brown hair. At the time he was wearing tan pants and a gray shirt.
