Hunting ducks in May? It sounds crazy, but according to a recent LDWF press release, that’s what two men were allegedly doing May 3 in St. Martin Parish.
LDWF Senior Agent Lucas Hidalgo cited Lane Borel, 26, and Leland Guidry Jr., 53, both of St. Martinsville, for hunting ducks during a closed season and wanton waste of migratory game birds after finding the two duck hunting a rice field near Catahoula. They had killed three black bellied whistling ducks.
The fine for hunting ducks during a closed season and wanton waste of migratory game birds is $400 to $950 with up to 120 days in jail for each offense. Additionally, the men could be asked to pay $126 in civil restitution penalties for the replacement value of the ducks.
Crime doesn’t pay kids. Feel free to leave some words of encouragement 😂 for Lane and Leland in the comments section below.
