The defendant shot at something, but he could not say what. He had a bird or something in his hand.

Northampton Mercury, 10 February 1883:
Petty Sessions, Feb. 7th.--Before Sir R. Knightley, Bart., M.P., Capt. Stopford, and the Rev. V. Knightley. …
Game Trespass and Assault.--John Harris, John Darby, sen., and John Darby, jun., all of Grimscote; George Roberts and Edward Webb, of Stowe-nine-Churches; Thomas Bishop, Pattishall; Thomas Corneyhidge, and William Campion, of Bugbrook, were all charged with a game trespass, at Stowe, on the 31st January.--Harris, the two Darbys, and Roberts were charged with assaulting Joseph Sergeant, on the 31st January; and Harris and the two Darbys were charged with assaulting Charles Sergeant, on the 31st January.--Mr. Andrew appeared for the complainant, and Mr. C.C. Becke for all the defendants--Mr. Becke, at the outset, took objection to the jurisdiction of the Bench, as there was a question of title, and the whole matter arose out of that.--Mr. Andrew put in the complainant’s lease, which leased the right of shooting over his farm and the plantations, during the pleasure of the governors of the Corporation of the Sons of the Clergy, and the tenant, Joseph Sergeant, to pay £5 per annum for the right of shooting.--The Bench thought that with the lease before them they could not allow the objection. The cases, therefore, proceeded.--Joseph Sergeant, farmer, Stowe, said he held a farm under the Corporation of the Sons of the Clergy, and rented the right of shooting over the farm and the plantations. On the 31st of January, about mid-day, he heard shots in the direction of the plantation. He went there, and saw the defendant Harris and the two Darbys. He discharged them, and asked for the rabbits. They had a gun and ferrets. Harris said, “All right.” Harris went away, and learning from Darby that Harris had a rabbit in his pocket, he ran after him, and took it away. [Article is lengthy, does not mention William Campion again, and concludes with:] The Bench dismissed the charge of poaching, because Mr. Roberts believed he had a right to kill rabbits; but the defendants must not go again, or they would probably be convicted.--George Roberts, Harris, and the two Darbys were fined 5s each, and 17s. 9d. costs each. Plaintiff’s costs, £2 10s. 9d.505

Saturday, July 11.--Before Mr. H.O. Nethercote (chairman), Mr. Drury Wake, Mr. Christopher Smyth, Mr. F.B. Simson, and Mr. J.A.S. Bouverie. …
Alleged Theft of a Horse.--Andrew Coleman, labourer, Wood-end, Blakesley, was charged with stealing a horse, value £10, the property of Joseph Tompkins, Bugbrooke, at Boughton, on June 26th.--Mr. Andrew appeared for the prosecution, and stated that Mr. Tompkins at Boughton Fair “chopped” a cart and three sovereigns for a pony. The three sovereigns he borrowed from the prisoner’s father, who was close by, and immediately after the transaction prisoner jumped on the pony and galloped away. When he was found by the prosecutor he said that he had bought the animal for the three sovereigns, but this the former denied, and said that he had had no dealings whatever with the prisoner.--By Mr. F.J. Sheppard (who was for the defence): He denied being the worse for drink.--William Campion, brother-in-law to the last witness, corroborated the main points of his evidence, and in answer to Mr. Sheppard, said that prisoner’s father said he was not to have the horse till Tomkins [sic] returned the three sovereigns. It was true that Tompkins wanted to fight with witness because he urged him not to buy the horse.--D.I. Swain said that when apprehended, on July 1st, the prisoner said, “We bought the pony”; and afterwards, “I did not buy it; I know nothing about it. I worked for the man. I do not know where the pony is. I worked for my father. I left the pony with my father in Weedon lane this morning, and I went to Wappenham to see about some haymaking. My father told me to take the pony away on Boughton Green, and take it to the Bell, at Northampton.” After a great deal of trouble witness found the pony at some farm premises four fields from the road, where no one lived.--Mr. Sheppard submitted that there was no case to send for trial, and said he had five or six witnesses on each point in the case.--The Magistrates, however, decided to send the case for trial, and prisoner, who pleaded not guilty, was committed to the Quarter Sessions bail being allowed.506
