Louisiana –-(Ammoland.com)- The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division is asking the public for help about deer hunting and trespassing violations that occurred in Rapides Parish on Nov. 22 2014.

A landowner alerted agents about a photo that his game camera took of two men with deer at 8:37 p.m. on Nov. 22 2014 in the Kolin and Effie area of Rapides Parish.

In the photo one man has a deer draped around his back to haul it out of the area and the other man lying on the ground to drape another deer to his back for transportation.

LDWF is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anybody that volunteers information that leads to an arrest and conviction in this case.  Anyone with tips or leads can call LDWF’s Operation Game Thief’s (OGT) toll free hotline at 1-800-442-2511 or text LDWF OGT by texting LADWF and their tip to 847411.  Tipsters can also download the LADWF Tips iPhone and Android apps from iTunes and Google Play stores free of charge.

Agents believe that the men were trespassing on private land without permission and may have committed other deer hunting violations such as hunting during illegal hours and with lights or night vision.

    1. Not sure anything illegal going on here, just looks to me like the deer were hitching a ride on the back of the men?

      Seriously though, In Va if you are pursuing a deer you still need written permission from the landowner. You can’t just tresspass, wounded deer of not. The guys in the pic are obviously poaching any way you cut it..

    2. Maybe the land owner heard the shots. Here in Ontario, it is trespassing if you don’t get the land owners permission, deer down or not.

    3. the problem with this picture is you don’t know when or where the deer was shot. Not sure about LA law but in NC there is a fair pursuit laws , which is if you wound a deer you can pursue that animal on other property. So we don’t know if the deer was shot somewhere else and died there or even at what time the deer was shot. Now there could be a lot more to this then they are saying in the article (it is sparse). which could be trying to say all hunters are poachers
