LA: men caught night hunting
Ascension Parish men caught night hunting, LDWF says
January 25, 2011
State enforcement agents cited two East Ascension men on Jan. 12 for
allegedly shooting deer at night, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and
Fisheries said in a press release. The citations came after two nights of
surveillance by the agents.
Grant Duplessis, 25, of St. Amant and Mark Duplessis, 56, of Gonzales
received citations for hunting deer during illegal hours and failing to wear
hunter orange. Grant Duplessis was also cited for not having a basic hunting
or big game license and violating the deer tagging regulations.
Hunting deer during illegal hours carries a $900 to $950 fine, or up to
120 days in jail, or both plus court cost. The penalties for failing to wear
hunter orange and not having a basic or big game hunting license each brings
a $50 fine and up to 15 days in jail. Violating deer tag regulations brings
a $100 to $350 fine, or up to 60 days in jail or both.
Agents involved in the case were Senior Agent Hal Bridges, Senior Agent
Randy Lanoux and Sgt. Todd Lewis.
