Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents cited three Louisiana men for alleged wildlife violations on Feb. 12, 2013 in Concordia Parish.
Kenneth Woods, 38, of Jonesville, Don Paige, 46, of Ferriday, and Kenneth Jenkins, 50, of Jonesville, were cited for hunting wild game quadrupeds during illegal hours and hunting raccoon illegally.
LDWF Sgt. Trey Mason and Concordia Parish Deputy Dusty Lemoine were patrolling the area of Haphazard Road near Dunbarton after legal shooting hours. They observed a spot light and heard several gunshots coming from a wooded area at the end of Haphazard Road.
While observing the area, the two officers observed two vehicles leaving the wooded area and they initiated traffic stops on both vehicles. During the traffic stops, Woods, Paige and Jenkins stated they were raccoon hunting, but did not have a dog in their possession.
The subjects were in possession of small caliber rifles. Subsequently, they were also found in possession of six freshly harvested rabbits.
Hunting wild game quadrupeds during illegal hours and hunting raccoon using illegal methods each carry a fine between $250 and $500 and up to 90 days in jail for each offense.
