Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited a Wisner man for alleged deer hunting violations on Dec. 10 in Franklin Parish.

Agents cited Jacob W. Jones, 39, for taking a six point buck with no basic or big game hunting licenses and failing to comply with deer tagging requirements.

LDWF agents were alerted by anonymous complaints about a photo of Jones with a harvested deer that Jones put on his Facebook page. During the investigation, agents learned that Jones killed the deer on Dec. 9 in Franklin Parish, but did not possess the required basic and big game licenses nor deer tags.

Hunting without basic and big game licenses each brings up to a $50 fine and 15 days in jail for each offense. Failing to comply with deer tagging requirements carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail. Jones may also face civil restitution for the deer totaling $1,624.61.

Agents participating in the case are Lt. Scott Watson and Sgt. Joe Chandler.
