Agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries recently cited four men for alleged migratory game bird violations near Morse in Acadia Parish, according to a press release.
Agents cited August Guillory, 30, of Morse; Tyler Boone, 21, of Mermentau; Jason Myers, 35, of Morse and Trevor Myers, 21, of Morse, with hunting across a public road, wanton waste and intentional concealment of wildlife. Jason and Trevor Myers also were cited for hunting without a residence license, the release states.
According to the release, LDWF received a complaint about shots being fired near a residential area in Morse on the evening of Dec. 29, and an agent allegedly observed Boone and Guillory on ATVs in a field with four wounded light geese.
The men said they had left other birds and their licenses at their house, and the agent discovered five more light geese at their camp, the release states.
Guillory and Boone allegedly admitted that Jason and Trevor Myers were hunting from across a subdivision road earlier that evening, and the men retrieved two additional birds from the field they were hunting, according to the release.
Intentional concealment of wildlife evidence and wanton waste each brings a $900 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail. Hunting without a license brings up to a $50 fine and 15 days in jail, and hunting across a public road brings a $250 to $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail, the release states.
