HOUSTON – A father and son were charged after choosing the wrong place to target their prey.

The men are accused of killing a deer on the University of Houston-Clear Lake nature trail.

The UH-Clear Lake Police Department says a caller reported it Monday.

Authorities say Shane and Reed Strickland put a deer blind in the wooded area of the trail.

And that’s where, investigators say, the men killed a white-tailed deer with a crossbow.

Both are both charged with taking wildlife without consent.
