Agents from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division have cited five Slidell residents. On December 17, these residents were allegedly in violation of migratory game bird laws in Orleans Parish.
Agents cited David Marshall, 55, Charles Efferson, 49, Michael Landry, 42, Robert Landry, 52, and a juvenile for hunting over bait. Agents also cited Robert Landry for an unplugged gun, Michael Landry for hunting with lead shot and the juvenile for over limit of scaup.
These state penalties can bring fines between $400 and $950, or even up to 120 days in jail and forfeiture of anything seized for each offense.
