Release Date: 12/11/2007

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents cited a Concordia Parish man for alleged night hunting violations near Lake Concordia on Dec. 5.


Agents stopped Luke Eugene Reeves, 30, of Ferriday, after he was observed hunting from his vehicle with the aid of artificial light for several minutes.  Upon making contact with Reeves, agents found a loaded .22 caliber rifle on the front seat of the vehicle 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 each carry fines between $250 and $500, or jail time up to 90 days, or both plus court costs.


Agents participating in the case were Senior Agent Trey Mason, Lt. Kenneth Hedricks and Senior Agent Joey Tarver.
