A 67-year-old West Monroe man was cited for alleged deer tagging violations last week in Lincoln Parish.
According to a news release from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Kenneth Cook was ticketed for tagging violations on one antlered deer and one antlerless deer.
An anonymous tip received by enforcement agents indicated Cook had used someone else’s tag for an antlered deer on Dec. 10, 2015. When agents met up with him on Feb. 5, he admitted to using his wife’s tag on the deer, the release states.
Further investigation revealed Cook also had harvested an antlerless deer on Oct. 1, 2015 and failed to validate the deer in the required seven-day period, the release states.
Failing to comply with deer tagging requirements carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail for each offense, the release states.
