TEAL HUNTERS NABBED ON OPENING DAY

Enforcement agents from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries seized 40 teal from three men on September 13, citing them in Catahoula Parish for alleged federal violations of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
Carlos D. Boyd, 42, and Thomas J. Jones, 41, both of Jena, and Jeromie Chad Smith, 25, of Jonesville were all cited for taking or possessing over the limit of teal. Smith and Boyd were additionally cited for violating migratory game bird tagging requirements.

Agents set up surveillance on the subjects' duck blind before daybreak on the opening morning of teal season. The men arrived and began shooting teal at approximately 6:30 a.m. After only an hour of hunting, the subjects had killed a total of 40 teal. During that time, Boyd transported the first 16 teal to the residence of Smith, while Smith and Jones continued hunting. Once Boyd returned to the blind, agents stopped the hunt and found the subjects to be in possession of 24 additional teal. The first 16 teal were later retrieved from Smith's residence. The daily bag limit on teal is four per person.

The two violations of taking or possessing over the limit of teal and violating migratory bird tagging requirements each carry a penalty of up to $15,000 in fines and up to six months in jail.

Agents participating in the case were Sergeant John Barker, Sr. Agent Joe Tarver, and Sr. Agent James Parish.
