Raceland man cited for alleged deer violations

Weimer harvested four deer — including illegal doe — without tagging or validating them, LDWF says

A 53-year-old Raceland man was cited last weekend for alleged deer violations by enforcement agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in Lafourche Parish.

According to a press release, on Nov. 27 Brad Weimer was cited for taking deer illegally, failing to comply with deer tagging requirements and deer harvest report requirements.

During the investigation, agents allegedly leared Weimer harvested two antlered deer and two antlerless deer in Lafourche Parish in October and November without tagging or validating any of the deer, the release states. Among the untagged deer was a doe illegally killed on Nov. 23, which was a bucks-only day for that area.

Illegally taking deer brings a $500 to $750 fine and 15 to 30 days in jail.  Failing to comply with deer tagging and deer harvest record requirements each brings a $100 to $350 fine and up to up to 60 days in jail, or both, the release states.

Weimer also faces civil restitution totaling $1,624 for the replacement value of the illegally taken antlerless deer, according to the release.
