Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries agents cited a man for alleged deer hunting violations on Dec. 1 in Calcasieu Parish.
Agents cited Jared L. Adams, of Sulphur, 34, for hunting from a moving vehicle, hunting deer during illegal hours, hunting deer from a public road and discharging a firearm from a public road.
Agents were working a night hunting complaint outside of Carlyss. Around 6:30 p.m. the agents observed a person operating a vehicle and shining a spotlight off of Fabacher Road into some nearby fields. Agents then observed the vehicle stop on the roadway and shoot at a suspected deer in the field from his vehicle.
Agents were able to stop the vehicle and found Adams with a loaded Browning 30-06 rifle in the passenger seat and a handheld spotlight. Agents also found a freshly fired 30-06 hull in the driver's side floorboard.
Hunting deer during illegal hours carries a $900 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail. Agents seized the rifle with a scope and the handheld spotlight. Hunting deer from a public road carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail. Discharging a firearm from a public road brings up to a $50 fine and 30 days in jail.
