From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:
WHITE MARSH, MD (December 29, 2009) – The Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) charged Raymond Louis Biensach Jr., 38, of Essex, Md. on December 23, with hunting without a license in possession, hunting without written permission, and possession of a deer during closed season. In addition, Cody Lee Blakely, 19, of Street, Md. was charged with hunting without written permission, and possession of a deer during closed season.
The two were apprehended after NRP officers responded to Loreley Beach Road for a poaching complaint. The officers stopped the both men after observing them attempting to leave the area in possession of a deer while carrying shotguns, which are prohibited for deer hunting this time of year.
While hunting, a person must possess a hunting license with certain exceptions. They must also possess written permission from the landowner while hunting on private lands and harvest deer only with a weapon appropriate for the hunting season in question.
Biensach and Blakely were released on their signatures pending a court date to be set by the Baltimore County District Court.
