Release Date: 01/07/2018

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited a Jamestown man for alleged deer hunting violations on Dec. 29, 2017 in Bienville Parish.

Agents cited Kevin L. Woodall, 45, for taking over the daily bag limit of antlerless deer and failing to comply with deer tagging requirements.

Agents received a complaint about Woodall harvesting two antlerless deer on the same day.  Agents met up with Woodall for questioning where he confessed to harvesting two antlerless deer during the same day.

He also said he harvested a total of five deer this deer season without validating the harvest or filling out the harvest card.  Agent further revealed that Woodall used an antlered tag on an antlerless deer he harvested.

Hunters are allowed to harvest one antlered and one antlerless deer per day for this area of the state.

Taking over the daily bag limit of deer brings a $250 to $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail.  Failing to comply with deer tagging requirements carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail.

Woodall may also face civil restitution totaling $1,624 for the replacement value of the illegally taken antlerless deer that put him over the daily bag limit.
