While patrolling on Bouef Wildlife Management Area, agents came into contact with Brandon Heath Rider, 30, and found him to be in possession of two antlerless deer.  After talking with Rider and obtaining information about the two deer, agents found that Rider had taken both deer while hunting that morning on Boeuf WMA. 


The daily limit for deer on a WMA (Wildlife Management Area) is one antlerless deer and one with antlers per day.


Taking or possessing deer over the legal limit carries a fine up to $500, jail time up to 90 days, or both plus court costs. 


Agents participating in the case were Sr. Agent Scott Watson and Sgt. Gary Watts.
