Agents stopped Gerry D. Buckles Jr., 35, of Ferriday after he was spotted hunting from a four-wheeler with the aid of a spotlight.  Agents found Buckles in possession of a .22 caliber rifle and cited him for hunting wild quadrupeds during illegal hours and hunting from a moving vehicle.


Hunting wild quadrupeds during illegal hours and hunting from a moving vehicle both carry fines between $250-$500, or jail time up to 90 days, or both plus court costs.


Agents participating in the case were Lt. Kenneth Hedricks and Sr. Agent Joey Tarver.
