OUACHITA PARISH MAN CITED FOR TURKEY HUNTING VIOLATION

Release Date: 03/31/2008

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents cited a Ouachita Parish man for allegedly hunting turkeys over a baited area on March 22. 


Timothy B. Alsobrooks, 38, of West Monroe, was cited after agents received a complaint that an area located south of Clay in Jackson Parish was possibly baited.  Agents made two trips into the area and documented an active feeder that contained corn. 


On March 22, at approximately 7:45 a.m., agents located Alsobrooks hunting turkeys within the 200-yard minimum distance to bait.  A check of the feeder revealed that corn was still present.  
 
The penalty for hunting turkeys over a baited area is a fine between $250 and $500, or jail time up to 90 days, or both plus court cost.
 
Agents involved in the case were Sgt. Duane Taylor and Senior Agents Stan House and John Volentine.
