Blanchard man among those cited for hunting violations

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement agents cited 14 people for alleged turkey hunting violations during the opening weekend of the 2018 turkey hunting season. Turkey season opened on April 7 in all three turkey hunting areas.

Also, turkey hunters are required to possess Louisiana basic hunting and big game licenses, Louisiana wild turkey license and turkey tags.

Hunting turkeys over a baited area brings a $250 to $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail. Failing to comply with turkey tagging regulations carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail. Not possessing a basic hunting license, big game license and wild turkey license each brings up to a $50 fine and 15 days in jail.
