Whitetail Game Law Violation Fines Increase Petition

Please sign this petition by commenting below with your name and parish of residence and also any comments you may have. Once we reach 25,000 names I will present it to the head of enforcement at LADWF and also our state legislature.

 

We the concerned citizens of Louisiana petition to have whitetail deer related game law violation fines increased with automatic additional hunting privilege suspension for 1 year upon conviction of first offense, and increasing there after up to a statewide, lifetime ban on all hunting and fishing activities. Each game law broken pertaining to intentionally poaching whitetail deer will also carry a minimum restitution of $3,000 per each deer illegally taken in addition to other fines. We value our natural resources and wish to take matters into our own hands to protect them.

 

*These increases are specifically designed for the obvious poaching crimes. ie. night hunting, spotlight use, no possession of tags or license, trespassing, killing over your yearly limit. We are aware honest mistakes are made. We would expect fair judgement to be made per each individual case. Especially those made by hunters within legal hours, who possess all the proper paperwork and  have no prior criminal record. We would also like to address the frequency by which game law violations are dropped and fines lowered in court.

      If everyone would abide by the rules and regulations and quite poching we would have more wildlife including white tail deer and our young children like my daughter she loves to deer hunt. For thanksgiving weekend me and my daughter was hunting in spring bayou I did not even bring a gun it was just my daughter hunting and I was filming the hunt and when it was shooting hour’s there were 3 guy’s that came up on me and my daughter and I told them to have a little respect and move futher away from us and the guy’s told me if they wanted to they could hunt the same tree we were on because it was wildlife and fisher so they sat on a log maby 20 yards from my 14 year old daughter and my self. About 9am in the morning I seen 2 does walking twards us and my daughter was getting ready to shoot 1of the does and the 3 guy’s sitting on the log right by us they started shooting at the does and thank God we were up in the deer stand 15 foot up if we would been sitting on the ground we would be dead today because the tree we were sitting in was hit 7 times people like that needs to be put in jail and throw away the key. And the 2 deer did not get hit because I went look for a blood trail the 3 guy’s did not even go look for the deer all they said was for me and my daughter to go fuck ourselves. I think if I had a gun I would of shot them when they started shooting at the 2 deer I can bring any one to the tree that we were in because there is 7 bullet penetrations in the same tree that we had our stands on. Now I can’
