L.D.W.F. AGENTS CITE LASALLE PARISH MAN FOR POSSESSION OF OVER LIMIT OF DEER

Release Date: 01/24/2006

Agents from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division cited an Olla man for allegedly taking two antlered deer on Jan. 21.


Agents cited Jeffrey Jerome Kirkham, 44, after receiving information that Kirkham had taken an 8-point buck earlier that day and was hunting again.  After finding the first buck, agents were able to locate Kirkham and found him to be in possession of a second 8-point buck he had taken that afternoon. 


Kirkham was hunting near the Mississippi River when he took the two bucks.  The daily limit for deer is one antlered and one antlerless deer per day. 


Both deer were seized and donated to charity.  Taking or possessing over the limit of deer is punishable by a fine up to $500, jail time up to 90 days, or both plus court costs.


Agents participating in the case were Sgt. Larry May and Sr. Agent Joe Chandler Jr.
