Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) enforcement agents cited two St Landry Parish residents on July 20 for alleged deer hunting violations.

LDWF agents cited Michael R. Alleman, 19, and Mikayla A. Coulon, 20, both of Sunset, for hunting deer during a closed season, hunting deer during illegal hours and hunting deer from a moving vehicle, according to a LDWF press release.

Agents received a complaint about a possible deer violation. During the investigation, agents discovered that Alleman and Coulon harvested a nine-point buck on the night of July 19.

Agents seized a 12-gauge shotgun, a .22 caliber rifle, a set of antlers and the deer meat.

Hunting deer during illegal hours and hunting deer during a closed season brings a $900 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail for each offense. Hunting from a moving vehicle carries a $250 to $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail.

The couple may also face civil restitution totaling up to $2,033 for the replacement value of the illegally taken deer.
