A Roanoke man faces a misdemeanor charge for shooting a wild turkey out of season.

A resident reported hearing a gunshot about 8:40 a.m. Sunday and then seeing the man put a dead tom turkey into the bed of a pickup truck.

A conservation officer found the truck and interviewed the man, who acknowledged killing the turkey.

The officer seized the turkey, and a misdemeanor charge of taking a wild turkey during the closed season will be filed against the man.
