Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) enforcement agents cited a West Monroe man on Feb. 5 for alleged deer hunting violations in Lincoln Parish.
Agents cited Kenneth Cook, 67, for deer tagging violations on one antlered deer and one antlerless deer.
LDWF agents were alerted by an anonymous complaint about Cook taking an antlered deer and using someone else’s tag on Dec 10, 2015. Agents met up with Cook on Feb. 5 when Cook admitted to using his wife’s tag on the antlered deer.
After further investigation, agents also learned that Cook harvested an antlerless deer on Oct 1, 2015 and failed to validate the deer in the required seven day period.
Failing to comply with deer tagging requirements carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail for each offense.
Agents participating in the case are Senior Agent Josh Harris, Sgt. Patrick Staggs and Lt. Thomas Risser.
