TEAL HUNTERS NABBED FOR VIOLATIONS

On September 13, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents cited two men in Terrebonne Parish for violations of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. The violations occurred on the opening day of the teal season.
Billy Skipper, 70, of Pierre Part, and Hershel Blood, 49, of Centerville, were allegedly observed by the agents hunting teal over a baited pond in the Swing Bayou area of Terrebonne Parish. The men were also in possession of 30 blue winged teal, 22 over the daily limit of four per person.

The baited pond was discovered earlier the same week, when agents were alerted to the pond by an unusual concentration of teal. A bait sample of milo grain was taken and held for evidence. After the hunt the agents found more milo in the pond.

Under current federal law, it is illegal to hunt migratory game birds with the use of bait. A baited area remains illegal to hunt until 10 days after the last grain of bait is gone.

Skipper and Blood were issued federal citations for hunting ducks over a baited area and for taking over the limit of teal. Both offenses are violations of the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act and are punishable by a fine of up to $5000, up to six months in jail, or both.

Agents involved in this case were Lt. Sammy Martin, Sr. Agts. Chad Hebert, Brett Hymel and Max Dupre.
