Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents cited Trey Charlet, 17, of Pierre Part on Jan. 11, for allegedly possessing over the limit of deer.
Agents received information that Charlet had allegedly left a gas station in Grand Bayou with two antlered deer in the bed of his truck traveling towards Pierre Part. Charlet was then noticed by an agent parked at another gas station in Pierre Part looking into the bed of his truck with several other people.
After an investigation and questioning by the agent, Charlet admitted to shooting two antlered deer in the same hunt on the same day. The daily limit for deer in Louisiana is one antlered and one antlerless deer per day. The agents seized both antlered deer and later donated them to charity.
If convicted of possessing over limit of deer, Charlet could face fines of $250 to $500, or up to 90 days in jail, or both plus court costs. Charlet could also be ordered to pay civil restitution of $524.54 to LDWF for the replacement cost of the illegally taken deer.
Agents participating in the case were Sgts. Winston Michel and Ronnie Hebert.
