A Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agent cited a Shreveport man for an alleged turkey hunting violation in Bienville Parish on April 25.
LDWF Sgt. Patrick Staggs cited Audie Arnold, 67, for hunting turkeys over a baited area. Sgt. Staggs observed Arnold hunting turkeys from an elevated box blind surrounded by three corn feeders.
According to the 2015 Turkey Regulations pamphlet, no person shall hunt or take turkeys by the aid of baiting or on or over a baited area. Hunters are not allowed to place, expose, deposit or scatter corn, wheat or other grain, salt or other feed to lure turkeys to their hunting area.
Hunting turkeys over a baited area brings a $250 to $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail.
