I recently received a pricinpal nomination for West Point, and my profile is approved. All I am waiting on is a medical waiver. However, last month, I was cited by the game warden for a safety zone violation. My friend had invited me over to his house to hunt, and although the neighboring houses were barely within the 150 yard safety zone required for hunting in PA, he told me he had permission to hunt on his property by his neighbors. Later, when I eventually shot a deer, one of the neighbors called the game warden. (Which revealed my friend told me false information). Although I had shot from outside of 150 yards from the closest house, the warden measured where my slugs landed and charged me with a misdemeanor safety zone violation. They were all safe shots into a hillside. Does anyone know how seriously this can affect my application? I plan on calling my regional officer to tell him about the citation, and although I have not been found guilty yet, is this the right decision? I consider myself responsible based on the fact that I blindly followed my friend's, but I do not want this hurting my chances of appointment.
