LDWF Agents Cite Four Men For Deer Hunting Violations

Release Date: 12/06/2013

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents cited four Louisiana men for alleged deer hunting violations on Nov. 30 in Bienville Parish.

Agents cited Jacky Fenn Jr., 31, of Jonesboro, Brandon Clifton, 29, of Monroe, Kenneth Blalock III, 28, of Quitman, and Roger Caskey, 36, of Jennings, for hunting deer during illegal hours with artificial light, hunting from a moving vehicle and possession of an illegally taken deer.  Caskey was also cited for failing to comply with deer tagging requirements.

Agents received a night hunting complaint in the area of Liberty Hill Hunting Club near Cox's Crossing in Bienville Parish. On Nov. 30, agents stopped a vehicle that met the description from the complaint.

Agents found the four men inside of the vehicle with three rifles, spotlight, flashlight and a freshly killed deer loaded into the bed of the truck.  Agents learned that Caskey had taken the deer after legal shooting hours from the truck and had not tagged the deer.

Hunting deer during illegal hours with an artificial light brings a $900 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail.  Possession of an illegally taken deer carries a $400 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail.  Failing to comply with deer tagging requrements brings a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail.  Hunting from a moving vehicle carries a $250 to $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail.

Agents participating in the case are Sgt. Chuck Dison, Sgt. Patrick Staggs, and Senior Agent John Blalock.
