HUNTERS CITED FOR BAITED FIELD HUNT
On September 6, agents of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and
Fisheries Enforcement Division cited several persons for allegedly hunting
migratory game birds (doves) over a baited area on the Charles Simons
property in Caldwell Parish. Cited during the investigation were Thomas
Simons, 64, Charles Simons, 60, and John Rentz, 46, of Columbia, Jared
Finley, 19, and Charles Finley, 51, of Grayson, and John Corley, 54, of
Simsboro. Charles Simons was also cited for aiding and abetting others in
the hunting of migratory game birds over a baited area.
Hunting migratory game birds over a baited area is a violation of the
Migratory Bird Treaty Act, punishable by fines of up to $5,000 and other
penalties including possible loss of hunting privileges, administered
through the Federal court system.
Agents participating in the case were Lt. John Rhodes, Sgt. Gary Watts,
Sgt. Michael Wilson, and Senior Agent David Henslee.
