Enforcement agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries cited a 45-year-old Jamestown man for alleged deer hunting and tagging violations on Dec. 29 in Bienville Parish.
According to a press release, Kevin L. Woodall was ticketed for taking over the daily bag limit of antlerless deer and failing to comply with deer-tagging requirements.
After receiving a complaint, agents met with Woodall, who according to release, confessed to harvesting two antlerless deer during the same day. He also allegedly admitted to harvesting a total of five deer this season without validating the harvest or filling out the harvest card. The investigation also revealed he allegedly used an antlered tag on an antlerless deer, the release states.
Hunters are allowed to harvest one antlered and one antlerless deer per day for that area of the state, according to the release.
Taking over the daily bag limit of deer brings a $250 to $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail. Failing to comply with deer-tagging requirements carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail. Woodall may also face civil restitution totaling $1,624 for the replacement value of the illegally taken antlerless deer that put him over the daily bag limit, the release states.
