Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) enforcement agents cited a cited a Port Allen man on Jan. 26 for alleged deer hunting violations in Winn and East Baton Rouge parishes.
Agents cited Sammy L. Monson Jr., 25, for deer tagging violations on three antlered deer.
LDWF agents were alerted by an anonymous complaint about Monson taking deer throughout the season and not properly tagging them. Agents met up with Monson at his residence on Jan. 26 and found him in possession of deer meat from a 12 point buck that he took on Jan. 17 in East Baton Rouge Parish that wasn’t properly tagged.
After further investigation, agents learned that Monson harvested a spike buck in East Baton Rouge Parish and an eight point buck in Winn Parish in November of 2015. Monson Jr. failed to comply with deer tagging requirements for both deer.
Failing to comply with deer tagging requirements carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail for each offense. Monson may also face civil restitution for the 12 point deer totaling $2033.29.
Agents participating in the case are Senior Agent Allan Marbury and Senior Agent David Boudreaux.
