A
s the sweltering
heat fades,
fall and winter
are upon us. This is the time of the year that most
Agents of the LDWF wait for. It allows a break from
daily boating patrols and gives us reason to get into
the woods. While on patrol, either by truck, ATV or
foot, this affords us the opportunity to see what the
Sportsman’s Paradise is all about. Whether it’s seeing
a youth take his first squirrel or deer, or if it’s visiting
a hunting camp and talking with one of its charter
members from a lost generation, the rewards and
gratification received by an Agent is limited only by
his imagination. Only then are we reminded that not
everyone is a law abiding citizen and that the LDWF
Enforcement Division is the front line of defense
for preserving what we have for future generations.
Over-limit harvest, license violations, and the ever

PRESIDENT, LWAA
present night hunter are the most common violations
seen today. Like any other law enforcement agency,
the LDWF-LED has had to adapt to the changing
times in order to succeed against outdoor outlaws.
The LWAA is no different. We will continue to
modify our programs to keep up with change. It is
our responsibility to ensure that future generations of
Wildlife Agents know of the struggles faced by our
Association and what we did to succeed. In turn, they
will be able to capitalize on the decisions we made
and make improvements to those decisions. With
a new year upon us, we will continue working on
projects set up by former LWAA Boards, as well as
new endeavors. These new ideas and projects will be
passed on and be improved upon. I hope everyone has
a safe hunting season and happy holidays!

ENFORCEMENT DIVISION DONATES
FISHING POLES TO STATE PARKS
C
olonel Winton Vidrine, Chief of Enforcement, recently donated 100 rod and reels to the soon to be
opened Bogue Chitto State Park in Franklinton, Louisiana. All of the rod and reels had been seized as
evidence related to recreational fishing violations and forfeited to the department by the court systems.
Denise McKinney of Bogue Chitto State Park received the rod and reels on the park’s behalf. The rods
and reels will be used
in family fishing events
at the park including
children’s fishing
clinics to be conducted
throughout the year.
Participants in the
fishing clinics will be
instructed on rigging the
line, casting, and fishing
tackle. The children will
be allowed to keep the
rod and reels in order to
continue to enjoy and
participate in recreational
fishing activities in the
future.

FAMILY TRADITIONS…
O
n April 17, 2010, Sr. Agent Bear Fletcher
and I set out on patrol near Lake Felicity, not
knowing we were bound to make the biggest
case of our careers so far and possibly the biggest case
we would ever make!
We began the day by cutting through several bays
and bayous without
seeing a single vessel.
We decided to head
north through a small
bay en route to a new
area where there may
be more boat traffic.
We suddenly noticed
a small aluminum
boat stopped at the
edge of the marsh. We
observed no fishing
poles but a lot of quick
movements by the
occupants. We traveled
in the direction of the
small vessel, and the
small vessel quickly
began traveling the
other way.
The 25hp
mercury on their
small vessel just
could not get away
fast enough. We approached the vessel and shut them
down. It was occupied by two males and a female.
As we got closer I noticed the vessel had an expired
registration sticker and no boat numbers. This was
an instant sign of something not right. We identified
ourselves to the occupants and noticed a big pile
of black drum. We
noticed several back
packs containing
clothes and a large blue
tarp lying in the floor
of the vessel.
We asked the
captain of the vessel if
they were recreational
or commercial fishing
and he replied that
they were commercial
fishing. I asked to
view his commercial
licenses and he moved
to retrieve them. When
he moved, he showed
us a surprise we were
not expecting. The
corner of a blue
tarp popped up
and revealed what
appeared to be a gill

net seized.

net. Agent Fletcher and I instantly looked at each
other and smiled. Had we really just caught them with
a gill net?
Like any agent would do, we put on a poker face
and kept our cool. The captain retrieved a commercial
license and a set line license. I asked to view the other
required licenses and he advised that’s all he had.
I asked to view his registration and boating safety
requirements. The captain replied that he had taken
everything out of the vessel before leaving the dock.
There was not one piece of boating safety equipment
anywhere in the vessel. I asked the captain if he had
taken the required boating education class since
he fell within the age range, and he said he had no
knowledge of a boating class.
I asked the captain about the gill net he had lying
under the blue tarp. He looked at us with a look all
agents have seen at some point in their career. He said
he had been using the gill net to catch all of the black
drum in the front of his vessel. I asked the captain if
he knew it was against the law to use a gill net in that
area. He hung his head and said, “Yes”, a sign that he
knew that he had been caught.
The captain told us he had quit school in the sixth
grade (age 18 now) and began commercial fishing
with his dad. He said his dad ran gill nets for a long
time and had taught him everything he knew. I asked
him if his dad had ever been caught running gill nets
and he told us his dad had been caught many times.
We checked the Hull Identification Numbers
and found that the vessel belonged to a construction
company out of Belle Chasse, La., but the vessel had
not been reported stolen. It was lost during hurricane
Katrina; little did they know it was now being used
for illegal fishing activities. We searched for the serial
numbers and the freeze plug with the hidden serial
numbers, but both had been removed from the 25hp
mercury outboard. We explained the situation and
the charges to the three occupants. We told them that
the black drum (37 total), the gill net (approximately

$800 value), and the vessel (14ft aluminum with 25hp
mercury) would be seized.
The captain of the vessel was written citations
for violations of Use Saltwater Net Illegally (Gill
Net), Possess Net Without Traversing Permit,
Possess Fish Without Commercial License, No Boat
Numbers, Expired Boat Registration Certificate,
Failure to Comply With PFD Requirements, No
Fire Extinguisher, Failure to Comply With Boating
Education Requirements, No Boat Registration in
Possession, Possession of Outboard With Serial
Numbers Removed, and Unauthorized Use of
Immovable (Felony).
The male and female deckhands of the vessel
were written citations for Use Saltwater Net Illegally
(Gill Net) and Possess Net Without Traversing Permit.
After issuance of the citations, the captain told us that
if his sister had not had to stop to use the bathroom
where they did, he would have never been caught.
I told him maybe not that day, but he would have
eventually been caught.
After discussing the case with several of the
older agents that work this area, I asked them about
the captain’s father and they recalled many stories
and events that took place. So it is true, gill nets and
outlaw ways are a family tradition for this family.

NEW BOATING EDUCATION LAW
TOOK EFFECT JULY 1, 2010
L
ouisiana has always been a state that is prolific
in recreational boating and water sports
participation. Whether it is fishing, hunting,
or just good old fashion pulling a tube, hundreds of
thousands of our residents participate in recreational
boating each year. During the 2009 Regular Session,
the Louisiana Legislature considered and reviewed
several factors, including boating safety education,
to determine how to increase the overall safety for
recreational boaters on Louisiana waterways .
Current Louisiana law requires anyone born after
January 1, 1988 to successfully complete a National
Association of State Boating Law Administrators
(NASBLA) approved boating education course
before operating a watercraft powered by a motor
over 10 horsepower unless accompanied by an adult
over eighteen that is grandfathered in by age or has
completed a NASBLA boating education course. The
2009 Legislature changed the current “born on date”
year from 1988 to1984. Here are some of the factors
that were considered and contributed to a law change
concerning boating education:
• Looking at the five year average (1998-2003) of
boating crash incidents and fatalities before Louisiana
began mandatory boating education, Louisiana
experienced an average of 164 boating crash incidents
and 40 fatalities per year.*
• Louisiana consistently ranks in the top three in
the nation in the number of boating fatalities per year
and usually ranks around 15th in the nation in the
number of registered vessels.*
• Nationally, the majority of boating crash incidents
(approximately 70%) occurs with operators who have
never taken a boating education course.*
• In July of 2003, Louisiana began mandatory
boating education for everyone born after January 1,
1988.
• In the five years since the implementation,
Louisiana has seen a reduction in boating crash
incidents and fatalities. The five year average (2004-
2008) for boating crash incidents and fatalities were
126 and 34 respectively. As well, we have seen a
slight drop in our ranking in total fatalities per year
nationally.*

Accordingly, the Legislature considered a study conducted by NASBLA. In
a study of best practices in boating education conducted by NASBLA’s Education
Committee in the summer and fall of 2006, the association found that those states
that have the longest history of boating education requirements also have the
lowest average fatality rates of all the states. Also, the longer the boating education
requirements have been in place, the lower the fatality rates have become. The
states with no boating education requirements in place have the highest average
fatality rates.
Source: The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators
(NASBLA), 2007
Consequently, the Legislature looked at all of the information listed and
felt that supporting the inclusion of more boaters under mandatory education by
rolling back the “born on date” to January 1, 1984 for mandatory education would
a positive part of legislation sponsored by Representative Nickie Monica (District
57) during the 2009 Regular Session. The rollback captures an age group of boaters
that will provide a lasting impact on boating safety. In order to give operators who
were affected by the new “born on date” time to take a boating education course,
the law is in effect July 1, 2010.
The Boat Louisiana boating education course provides instruction on boating
safety topics and best practices that even the most seasoned and experienced
boaters may not be aware of or practice. The course is provided to the public in
two ways: classroom and
online. The classroom
course is free of charge
and provided year
round across the state
by the LDWF and other
volunteer organizations.
The online course has a
fee and is administered
by boat-ed.com as a
courtesy option for the
public that may not be
able to attend a free
classroom course. If
you would like more
information on our
free boating education
course, view a schedule
of courses, or to find out
about the online course,

The ultimate goal
of saving lives and
reducing boating crash
incidents is an endeavor
not to be taken lightly.
Education is a key
component in reaching
that goal.

TIPS FOR PARENTS ON PERSONAL
FLOTATION DEVICES FOR CHILDREN
L
ouisiana has always been known for its vast
waterways and the enjoyment that can be
derived from them by adults and children.
Recreational water sports are fun for the entire family,
especially kids. One piece of equipment that can
make a day on the water a happy memory rather than
a tragedy is a personal flotation device (PFD). Here
are a few tips adults need to know about personal
flotation devices for children:
It is required by Louisiana law that any child
sixteen years old or younger wear a United States
Coast Guard approved personal flotation device that
is properly sized and fitted and is in good serviceable
condition while a vessel is underway. It is highly
recommended that children wear PFDs at all times
when on boats or near bodies of water.
For a personal PFD to work properly it must fit
snugly on a child. A good way to check for a good fit
is to pick the child up by the shoulders of the PFD. A
properly fitted PFD will not allow the child’s chin and
ears to slip through the PFD. Remember to fasten all
straps, zippers, and ties.
PFDs with a safety strap that fastens between the
legs can prevent the device from slipping over the
child’s head and are highly recommended.
Test a child’s PFD in the water immediately after
purchase. Teach the child to relax in the water while
wearing the PFD. A struggling child makes it hard to
float safely in a PFD. The struggling child may not
stay face up even with a properly fitted PFD.
Finally, remember that no one can watch a child
every second. A child can drown in minutes with
adults around. Wearing a PFD can prevent such a
tragedy and makes water sports memorable and
enjoyable for the family. For more information on
personal flotation devices or recreational boating visit

UPDATE
A
s I sit here to write this Region Update, my thoughts are with the family
of a Sgt. Tim Prunty. Sgt. Prunty was a Shreveport Police Officer who
was killed in the line of duty on October 24th, 2010, at 3:30 AM. He was
standing outside a Circle K talking to the clerk, waiting to meet up with the other
guys on his shift to gather paperwork, when a 24 year old man walked up and shot
him. He had no warning of this murderer’s intention. I saw the mug shot of the guy
and he looked like any other 24 year old college kid. The accused’s father was a
retired Shreveport Police Officer, so he probably did not fit the image of someone
about to commit murder. I knew Tim from Cross Lake Patrol where he worked for
a brief period of time. I did not know him well but I remember him always being
helpful and always with a joke. He was the kind of officer that, when you met him,
you knew he would have your back. This also makes me think about all the times
we as officers enter a store late at night to grab a cup of coffee or a snack. How
many times are we fully alert to what is happening around us and are we prepared
to do what we have to do to save our lives or someone else’s? Sgt. Prunty was laid
to rest with full honors.
He will be missed and
always remembered for
his great service.
Our hunting season
is in full swing. Agents
are working hard and
making cases. The com-
plaints seem to all pour
in at one time. We have
been working a lot of
late nights. Recently, we
have started getting calls
about hunters taking over
the limit and not tagging
deer. What a wonderful
tool the tagging system
has become for us. I
remember the days when
people would call in and
complain about someone
taking over the limit and
we had no way of proving

it, well not any more. It still amazes me how hunters
say that they do not understand how to tag a deer and
THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE WRITTEN ON THE
HARVEST CARD! When I talk at Hunter Education
Classes, I remind everyone in the class to take a min-
ute and run through a mental checklist of what you
need. In short, be prepared, or be prepared to pay up!
As this update draws to a close, I would like thank
God for the rain. We have been far too long without it
up here in North Louisiana, and we finally have got-
ten about three days of constant rain. This is going to
make the hunting much better. Food plots can grow,
and hunters will once again be able to ease through
the woods without sounding like an army.
Till next time, stay safe out there, and introduce
someone to hunting!

SHOCKED!!
I
t was September 1, 2010, and Sr. Agent Michael
Dunn and I had scheduled ourselves to work until
midnight on this particular Wednesday night.
Over the past several years we had been receiving
bits and pieces of information concerning several
individuals illegally shocking and harvesting fish on
the Red River. About
a week prior, Senior
Agent Frank Reger
was informed that they
were at it again and
was told how they were
doing it in a little more
detail. The information
was that there were
multiple boats and that
they were launching
in Arkansas and
drifting down river into
Louisiana. The alleged
suspects would then
have their trucks and
empty boat trailers
driven into Louisiana
where they could
load out and drive
back into Arkansas. It was about 6:00 p.m., and we
decided to meet at my house and brainstorm the ideas
of how we were going to work it that night. Our first
option was to launch from a private launch that a very
prominent landowner in Bossier Parish had pushed
out with a bulldozer just a few days prior for our little
operation. He did inform us, however, that we would
have a great deal of trouble navigating the river with
the water level being as low as it was. We decided to
grab a bite to eat and think a little more about it, so
with the permission of Captain Richie McCarthy and
Agents with seized shocked catfish.

Lieutenant Roy Schufft, we dressed in plain clothes
and jumped into my personal vehicle and headed for
Vivian. As we crossed the river bridge into Caddo
Parish, we met a Jeep Wrangler and a Dodge Ram
pickup pulling empty boat trailers followed by a
third vehicle headed towards the Highway 2 boat
launch. Bingo! Talk about the right place at the right
time! This matched the description of our complaint
perfectly! We decided to go eat and come back
through to see if the vehicles had indeed stopped at
the launch. After scarfing down our quick meal we
were both anxious to get back to the launch, and as
we pulled in we were not disappointed! The Jeep
had an Arkansas license plate and the Dodge had
Texas plates. We knew that these had to belong to the
alleged shockers we were looking for, so we drove
on through and back to my house to get the rest of
our equipment. Senior Agent Dunn decided that since
there were only two of us and one boat, we should
wait at the launch posing as a couple of derelicts and
Shocked!!
wait for their return. We didn’t want to risk pulling
up to one boat and find that the other boat had the
shocking devices on board. The evidence would
be at the bottom of the river before we knew it. So
we pulled up to the launch in my personal vehicle
and the wait began. Three hours into the stakeout,
I couldn’t take it any longer and had to see what
was in the back of the truck. I had noticed a large
ice chest in the bed when we drove by earlier. As I
approached the truck and made my inspection circle,
I made one final approach to the back. Then I got
the feeling I was being watched! And guess what?
I was! There had been a vehicle parked underneath
the bridge and I never saw it! I quickly walked away
from the vehicles and back to Senior Agent Dunn’s
location to break to him the bad news. I informed
him that one of two things was about to happen: A.
the people in the vehicle were the lookouts and I had
just blown our cover or B. the people in the vehicle

were fine outstanding citizens were probably dialing
the sheriff’s office to report a sketchy individual at
the boat launch. As we sat contemplating our next
move and wondering if our cover had really been
blown, an SUV whips in the parking lot at a high
rate of speed squealing tires all the way up to our
suspect vehicles. Two individuals jumped out of the
SUV and into the driver’s seat of both the Jeep and
Dodge! Talk about a bad feeling! We watched as
all three vehicles exited the parking lot in the same
fashion as the SUV had entered. We quickly jumped
in my truck and began following them to see where
they were headed. A million things were running
through our heads at this point. Had they spotted
us? Did someone tip them off to our presence?
We followed them several miles north and began
nearing the Arkansas state line. Senior Agent Dunn
quickly called Wildlife Officer Clay Raborn with the
Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and briefed
him on the situation we had. I cringed as Senior
Agent Dunn asked him where he was and if he was
working because I knew where Officer Raborn lived
and it was nowhere even close to where we were.
Then I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard him tell
Senior Agent Dunn that he and Wildlife Officer Justin
Smith had been off duty, but both had been called
out to assist a stranded boater on the Sulpher River.
They were less than ten miles away from us! As we
crossed the state line, Senior Agent Dunn stayed in

phone contact with Officer Raborn and we
began relaying our location to him. Officer
Raborn instructed us to keep the vehicles
in sight and they would fall in behind us
shortly. We began nearing the Spring Bank
Ferry. We knew that was where they were
going to pick up the boats. I stopped my
truck at the intersection as Officer Raborn
and Officer Smith pulled up. They informed
us that there was only one way in and one
way out. Officer Raborn approved the plan
of Officer Smith and I to travel through
the woods with the aid of night vision to
intercept them as they pulled the boats out
of the water. Officer Raborn and Senior
Agent Dunn would block the road with the
trucks if they tried to run. As we made our
way through the woods, we reached the
launch as they were pulling the boats up
the ramp. Officer Smith and I rushed down
the embankment as Officer Raborn lit us all
up with the blue lights and takedowns. The
look on their faces was priceless! All six
individuals were separated and every one
had a different story! Wouldn’t have guessed that! Officers Raborn and Smith began searching the boats and
were able to locate the two shocking devices. There were 72 illegally harvested catfish found in the boats along
with four extra-long-handled dip nets. Miller County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived with a van, yes a van, to haul
our “shocked” criminals to the Miller County Detention Center for booking. All six individuals were booked
for Illegally Harvesting Fish with Electrical Devices. The SUV contained a wife and two seventeen year old
sons of one of the shockers and they were able to leave the scene with a court date and each a charge of Aiding
and Abetting for their involvement. We later asked why they had doubled back into Arkansas and not taken out
into Louisiana. They informed us that the river had gotten too low and that they had gotten stuck on a sand bar,
forcing them to turn around.
I can’t thank Wildlife Officers Clay Raborn and Justin Smith and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
enough for their help in closing the case that night. Quoting Officer Raborn, “Bad guys don’t have a line. It’s
nice when two state agencies can come together and work as one.” The Game Wardens had everything to work
out in their favor that night and we were able to give the violators the ole “shock” of their lives!

THE LONG ARM OF MURPHY’S LAW
I
n my 11 years with the department I have had the
opportunity to work with Game Wardens from
other states in the apprehension of poachers. I
live in the Northwest corner of Louisiana so in my
everyday work I interact with Arkansas and Texas. I
have helped them apprehend several night hunters.
This usually involves going to the violator’s house
and interviewing him, which usually leads to him
traveling back to the scene of the crime to take his
medicine.
Well, this certain case came to me all the way
from Colorado. I knew this would not be the easy
interview with the violator returning to the scene of
the crime. I spoke with the Game Warden in Colorado
and he gave me all the details. This all started from
a landowner complaining about someone dumping
antelope remains on his property. The funny thing
was that the way they tracked the remains back to a
person. Stuck to the carcass was a concert ticket with
one of the violator’s names on it. The concert was for
Bill Engvall (yeah, the here’s your sign guy).
Sr. Agt. Jay Thomas and I arrived at the residence
and, as luck would have it, there was a vehicle
parked in the driveway matching the description that
I received from Colorado. As my luck would have it,
nobody was home but the son of the suspect. Well,
we left, only to be contacted by our region office
within 15 minutes. I guess the suspect (we will call
him Murphy) had a guilty conscience. We agreed to
meet with Murphy at his residence and found him to
be in possession of antelope meat. We also found a
whitetail hide and antlers that he had bought off the
internet, which is not legal.
The game warden from Colorado was working
on Murphy’s accomplices, who decided that it was
time to roll Murphy under the bus to try to save
themselves. It became apparent that this group had
been hunting illegally for several years and had taken

numerous antelope and mule deer. On
our second trip to Murphy’s residence, I
came bearing a gift, a search warrant. We
gathered our evidence and left. In typical
Murphy fashion, he was calling the office
the next day, wanting to tell his story.
After Murphy gave his story, he
was charged and later found guilty
of Destruction of Wildlife and Illegal
Possession of Wildlife. He was fined
over $4,000 and put on 2 years probation.

until it reaches out and gets you.

LWAA PISTOL TEAM
WORKING ON PERFECTION
T
he LWAA Pistol Team recently attended the
NRA National Police Shooting Championships
in Albuquerque, NM. This year we competed
in a new segment of competition called Tactical Police
Competition (TPC). TPC gives you several different
scenarios and then you are scored on time and hits.
It combines speed with marksmanship
and trains you for real life situations. We
got a lot of good ideas that we can use
in training. We started the week off on
Sunday with Practice. We all felt pretty
good about the start of competition.
Everyone on the team did well and
we put together a strong showing
throughout the week. We won a total of
40 individual trophies. Sgt. Troy Parker
finished fourth in the shotgun out of 330
competitors. The winner was decided by
X-count; so, technically, Troy and the
top three had the same score. The winner
of the shotgun match was a fellow game
warden from Pennsylvania, so that eases
the sting of defeat a little.
The highlight of the Championships
for our team was the clean sweep of
all the two-man team matches in the
conservation division. Sgt. Dane Thomas
and Sgt. James Parish won the High
Conservation stock semi-auto match. Sgt. Troy Parker
and I won the High Conservation revolver and High
Conservation semi-auto matches.
I would like to thank everyone for their support
of the pistol team and look forward to continuing to
represent our association and department.

elcome from
Region 2.
After a pretty
productive summer, I
think we’re all about
ready to get into
hunting season.
We, like a large
portion of the state,
suffered through one of
the worst droughts in
recent memory, but as I
write this, the heavens
have opened, and
granted us a bit of relief.
The first part of squirrel
season was a bit slow,
as moving through the
woods was like walking
on freeze-dried corn
flakes, but the rain has
helped settle things
nicely, Based on the
cases being made now,
it looks to be a fairly
productive season for
us. There are always
a few folks who don’t
like rules, and want to
take more than their fair
share.

UPDATE
We’re still getting a
few D.W.I.s, along with
some drug cases, to go
along with our hunting
and fishing related cases.
This is always great
to see, and it’s always
nice to do something
the non-hunting public
understands and really
stands behind. It makes
us look good, and helps
to get some real winners
off the roads, out of the
woods into court.
Deer season seems
to be picking up steam,
and I think I’ve seen
more deer this year
than any other year
I’ve had this wonderful
profession. Not sure
how that will translate to
the deer harvested, but
if the highways are any
indication, it looks to be
a good season.
I’d like to welcome
back Sr. Agent Wendell
Weeks. He just returned
from a tour of duty
overseas. Glad you made
it home safely, and thank
you for your service!
Given the current
economic conditions, it’s
very likely we’ll see a
spike in violations, as
well as lean times ahead,
which mirror what every
other American is going
through. But we’re here
to protect something
valuable and necessary,
so as long as we conduct
ourselves fairly and
professionally, we’ll
probably be okay.
Well, that’s about it
from Region II. Have a
great hunting season, but
most of all, be safe.

BOUNTIFUL BASS IN
MISSISSIPPI RIVER LAKES
W
hen speaking with local fishermen, they
usually ask, “Where are the fish biting”?
If we give a favorable location, then the
conversation moves into what kind of bait is most
effective. Well, believe it or not, agents can’t always
point anglers in the right direction. We simply pass
on information obtained through license checks and
boating safety inspections. Usually by the time word
gets out, conditions change and that can mean the
difference in a daily limit or “not a bite”.
This past summer, however, I could say with
confidence that the fish were biting in lakes along the
Mississippi River. More specifically, bass fishermen
appeared to have had an exceptional year. In fact, Region
2 enforcement agents cited seventeen subjects and seized
numerous bass related to the cases. All live bass were
documented and released back into the water.
In most cases, it appeared that the anglers found a
“hot spot” and failed to keep up with fish placed in the live
well. Violators were found to be in possession of one fish
over the daily limit up to thirteen fish over the daily limit.
On three occasions, at least thirty-five fish were found in
the live well of the vessel. For more information, visit wlf.
louisiana.gov and research news releases related to the
cases.
I asked Ryan Daniels, Region 2 freshwater fish
biologist, to explain the heightened activity of fish along
the Mississippi River. Daniels stated that recent high
water stimulated the population of most freshwater fish.
If high water occurs during spawning, it can increase the
fish population substantially. If an area sees high water for
back-to-back years or sometimes for three years in a row,

the effect can be tremendous. Daniels
also stated that much of the success
is all about catching rivers at the right
stage.
Areas where cases were made
included Chotard Lake and Albemarle
Lake in East Carroll Parish, and Paw-
Paw Chute, Yucatan Lake and Palmyra
Lake in Madison and Tensas Parishes.
One over limit bass case was also made
on Turkey Creek in Franklin Parish.
The daily limit for largemouth
bass is 10 per person. However, some
area lakes are more restricted. Find the
area you plan to fish in the “Louisiana

then read Mr. John his rights, and patted him down.
I handcuffed Mr. John and asked him to have a
seat. The other two occupants of the vehicle, front
passenger Mrs. Jill and rear passenger Mrs. Janet,
were then asked to exit the vehicle. Both subjects
complied. I observed an open beer in the front
floor board and one in the rear floor board. All
the subjects were searched and it was found that
Mr. John was in possession of a marijuana joint
and Mrs. Jill was in possession of approximately
an ounce of marijuana. Mrs. Jill stated that it was
just a little home grown. After further questioning,
all the subjects stated that they were just pulling
into the WMA to smoke a little pot and have a few
beers. The subjects that were in possession of the
marijuana and alcohol were issued citations. You
know that there probably is a better place to do this
kind of activity than a Wildlife Management Area.

initial contact with Mr. John, I observed his hand
was clinched in a fist beside his leg. I also observed
that Mr. John had an open beer on the floor board
between his legs. I asked Mr. John to exit the vehicle

LOST AND FOUND
By Sgt. Duane Taylor
The night of November 2, 2010, began as a typical
day for me this time of year. Gun season had just
begun, and my off days are normally spent at the
camp. We had finally gotten a small cold front to pay
us a visit, and with it came some much needed rain.
We were experiencing one of the worst droughts on
record. I had seen places that have always held water
reduced to mudholes littered with dead fish while
others were dry with cracks in the dirt. I had gotten
in from the camp earlier in the evening and was now
in bed, watching TV and listening to the rain on the
roof, when my phone rang. Caller ID showed that Lt.
Rick Owens was ringing my bell. For those that have
been at this job for a while, you know that when your
Lt, Captain or Dispatch calls at night on your day off,
well, it is never good. I have yet to get a pay raise or
promotion via a late night phone call, so I expected
the worst. I just knew that rather than lying in bed
and listening to the rain, I was going to have to get
out in it so I could get the full effect. Sure enough, my
experience paid off, and yep, I was out of the warm
bed and into a uniform complete with a slicker suit.
The call was concerning three people missing
after a scouting trip for a place to deer hunt. What
made matters worse is that they went by boat. The
icing on the cake was that it involved a 36 year old
man and his two sons, ages 7 and 10. They had
launched their boat at approximately 2:00 p.m. on
D’arbonne Bayou. Now it was closing in on 10
p.m., and their truck was still at the Holland’s Bluff
boat ramp within the boundaries of the D’arbonne
National Wildlife Refuge. The temperature had taken
a significant decline and it was still pouring down
rain. We had absolutely no idea which way they had
gone. Knowing that there are miles and miles of
smaller sloughs accessible by boat from D’arbonne
Bayou, that there were children involved and that
they had been wet for over 8 hours... well, this was
a definite recipe for disaster with a slim hope for a
happy ending.
While I was getting dressed, the on-duty shift,
consisting of Sgt. Lane Kincaid, Sr. Agent Scott
Jeansonne and Agents Mike Jones and Scott Bullitt
were busy launching their boats and trying to come up
with a “who was going to go where game plan”. After
I was mobile, I contacted Lt. Owens to find out where
he needed me. I was instructed to get my 22 ft. Triton
and meet Senior Agent David Harrell at the Joe Bob’s
boat launch located approximately 8 miles south of
the Holland’s Bluff landing. We were to head north
just in case the family had gotten lost or stranded due
to the weather or motor trouble. I was scratching my
head on this decision, due to the fact that the water in
D’arbonne Bayou was lower than I had ever seen it
and I was restricted to the main channel only. It turned
out to be the right decision however. Just as Agent
Harrell and I got to the ramp, Senior Agent Jeansonne
radioed that the family had been located, and he
needed EMT personnel to move from the Holland’s
Bluff ramp to the Joe Bobs ramp. Since Sgt. Kincaid
and Agent Jeansonne were in a Go Devil, now filled
with 5 people, speed was not an option. Agent Harrell
and I launched the Triton and headed north on the
bayou. This is where things got tricky. We were on
a water body that I grew up fishing. On a full moon
night, I can run it full throttle without a Q-beam. Let’s
just say I know it fairly well. But, due to the pouring
rain, and the amount of fog coming from the water, it
had somehow transformed into a place that had me as
baffled as if it were my first time to be on it. We had
two Q-beams working and the visibility was reduced
to maybe 30 yards, sometimes less. I could picture

every turn in my mind, but could not see them until
the last second. Between the ever increasing fog
hanging at eye level, to the rain stinging like needles,
the best I could do was to barely keep the boat on
plane. Any slower and we would be at idle, any faster
and it was a possibility of Harrell and I also getting in
a bind by running out of the channel or even missing
a turn and running aground.
Finally, about four miles after we headed north,
we could see the Q-beam of Kincaid and Jeansonne.
We met them at the Ouachita/Union parish line. We
were also met with a very scared dad and two children
that were mentally and physically exhausted. It was
very obvious that hypothermia was taking its toll. As
we were putting them in our boat, one of the children
had to be picked up and placed in our boat. Once all
three were on board, I instructed them to lay on the
floor of the boat and huddle together. Once they did
this, Agt. Harrell and I placed several large insulated
jackets on them. Now, we had to make the 4 mile run
back, and this was when the clouds decided to release
the rest of the rain, all at one time. It was pouring,
and time was fast slipping away. I looked at Harrell
and as he looked at me, we both shook our heads.
Before getting on plane, I contacted Lt. Owens and
told him we were on our way. He informed me that
he was at the ramp and that 2 ambulances and EMT’s
were standing by. I put the Triton on plane, and with
the additional rain, visibility was reduced further than
Lost And Found
our initial trip. We somehow made it safely back, and
as the bow of the boat hit dry ground, Union Parish
Deputies and EMTs removed the family from my
boat and into the waiting ambulances. All three were
treated for dehydration and mild hypothermia, then
released to family members. The grandfather was so
elated to see his son and grandchildren alive that he
actually broke into tears when talking to me. Other
family members shook our hands and thanked us.
From what information we gathered while
talking to the son, they had launched their boat to
scout for a place to deer hunt. Due to the rain, he
got lost and could not find where he had parked his
boat. Soon it had gotten dark, and they were stranded
in the middle of D’arbonne Refuge, without a cell
phone, flashlight, compass, GPS, rain gear, cigarette
lighter or other method of starting a fire, and no food
or water. Their scouting trip started at 2 p.m. and we
did not locate them until midnight. It was close to 1
a.m. before we got them to the ramp. I know that in
any situation, you can “what if” something to death.
Now I do not make the decision on whether or not
somebody lives or dies, but I can tell you that had it
been 10 degrees colder or had it been several more
hours before they were located, things would have
been worse - a lot worse. It was obvious hypothermia
had reared its ugly head, so just a slight change in the
scenario, and I think this would have been a tragic

situation for this family.
A search for a lost boater, hunter or fisherman is
never good, but when you throw children in the mix,
it definitely ups the ante. Most searches are fairly
routine, and once the person(s) are found, we go
about our way, and never think twice about it, nor do
we try and achieve the old “pat on the back”. Due to
all factors involved, this search was more than that. It
was difficult from start to finish. Did we save a life, or
maybe all three? We will never know that answer, but
in the back of my mind, I can all but assure you that
we did. Had any factor changed in the scenario such
as a drop in temperature, I can say without a doubt
that this would have resulted in a fatality.

NOPE, NO SQUIRRELS HERE!
By Sr. Agent Lee Tarver
I
do not have anything that I think is interesting
to write about that has had a chance to go to
court yet. However, I do have to go to court in
the morning on a ticket that I wrote back in July.
When I received the subpoena for the case, I did not
remember the man, nor what in the world I could
have written him up for that he would want to contest
in court. We will call the man whose case I received
the subpoena for Dr. Doolittle. After speaking with
Sgt. Larry May, who also received a subpoena, he
refreshed my memory about a man we had written up
for having some squirrels in a cage. I then looked the
man up on my computer and found out that he was
right. We had cited him for 56:116.1 B (7) Possess
Live Wild Game Quadrupeds Without A Permit. Since
I have to refresh my memory about the case for court,
and write an article, I figure I can kill two birds with
one stone. So here it goes.
On June 23, 2010, while Sgt. Joe Chandler and I
were looking for a stolen boat, I received a complaint
from one of my Super Secret Informants. This
particular informant is always in the know and right
on the money when he calls me with some info. Super
Secret Informant told me that a man had a couple of
squirrels in a cage hanging from a tree. I told him
that we would check on it later when we got through
with we were doing. Sgt. Chandler and I then went
to the address that he had given me, and sure enough,
there were three squirrels hanging in a cage in the
yard. There was no one home at the time, so we took
a couple pictures of the squirrels in the cage and left.
We went back by the house several more times that
day and night, but were unable to catch the residents
at home. I was going to be off for a few days so I
called Sr. Agt. John Hendrix and told him what was
going on.
On June 25, 2010 Sr. Agt. John Hendrix, Sr. Agt.
Leya Grover, and Sgt. Jeff Robinson all went to the
mobile home were the squirrels were located. The
subjects were still not home and the squirrels were
still in the cage in the yard hanging from a tree limb.
They also took a few pictures and left. This would
continue for a while, 17 days to be exact! If one of us
were in the area, we would swing by and see if they
were home.
Finally, on July 12, 2010, Sgt. Larry May and I
were able to make contact with the residents of the

mobile home where the squirrels were located. The
squirrels were no longer in the cage that had been
hanging in the yard. I knocked on the door and was
greeted by a lady, who clamed to live in the mobile
home in question. I identified myself and read the
lady her rights before I asked her if she had any
squirrels in her mobile home. The lady quickly said
“Nope. No squirrels here!” I love this part about my
job! I then informed the lady that we had been there
numerous times in the past month, and taken many
pictures of the squirrels in that cage, as I pointed at
the cage in her yard. The lady then hung her head
and said, “I will go get Dr. Doolittle.” I asked her if
I could come in with her to see Dr. Doolittle, which
she agreed to. Dr. Doolittle was laid up in the bed butt
naked watching The Bold and The Beautiful. I asked
Dr. Doolittle if he could put some clothes on, and
come outside and talk to me for a minute.
Dr. Doolittle came outside and I advised him of
his rights before I asked him if he had a permit to
possess the live squirrels, and where they were. Dr.
Nope No Squirrels Here!
Doolittle said that he did not have a permit and had
let them go a few days ago in his yard. I then told Dr.
Doolittle that we had been trying to get in touch with
him for a while, and informed him that we had taken
pictures of the squirrels in his cage several different
days. I also asked Dr. Doolittle where he had gotten
the squirrels. He replied that a logger had given them
to him at the store, and that he did not know the
logger’s name. I told Dr. Doolittle that a few of the
times I had come by his house, the cage was not in
the yard. Dr. Doolittle said that whenever he thought
bad weather was coming, he would bring the squirrels
inside. Dr. Doolittle was cited for having the squirrels
in a cage without having a permit for them.
As I wrote this article, I remembered what Dr.
Doolittle looked like, and that I had just seen him at
O’Reily’s Auto Parts about a month ago. I remember
the guy staring at me like I had just kicked his dog,
and thinking to myself, “Hmm, I wonder what I wrote
him a ticket for.” Now I remember.

TWENTY SQUIRRELS BY BOAT
By Sgt. Wayne Parker
D
rought conditions in north Louisiana caused
some trees to drop leaves prematurely. As
squirrel season opened, the crunchy leaves
made sneaking up on the critters almost impossible.
I heard some refer to the conditions as similar
to walking on “potato chips”. I agree with the
assessment as I made several attempts myself.
Lt. Mathews and I observed two subjects that
overcame the disadvantage of walking through the
dry ground covering. They were paddling a canoe
and a kayak in Joe’s Bayou of East Carroll Parish.
Mathews and I were able to observe the hunters
as they navigated the bayou where oak and pecan
canopied over the water. As we moved from one
location to another, it often sounded like a fieldtrip of
first graders walking through the woods. Some of you
know how uncomfortable that can be when
trying to remain undetected.
We contacted the two as they made
the return trip to their pickup. Who knows
if the hunt was over? They were carrying
shotguns and scanning the trees. “Game
Warden,” I announced, as the leaves crushed
under my feet. During an interview of the
subjects, they were uncertain of the number
of squirrels that they piled in the canoe. They
both assumed, however, that it was too many.
They were correct. We found them to be in
possession of twenty freshly killed squirrels
and one raccoon.
I may not be able to sneak up on a
limit of squirrels but I can sure sneak up on
two squirrel hunters “over the limit”.
Lt. Mathews and Sgt. Parker catch two men with four
squirrels over the limit.

ello from Region 3. After a long hot summer, hunting season has
finally kicked off in Central Louisiana. Hunters have been thinking
about planting food plots and breaking out the bows and rifles since the
season last closed. Agents across the region have welcomed the change as well.
Unfortunately, this has been one of the driest seasons in recent memory. Many
creeks and sloughs are either bone dry or holding stagnant water. Dove season
started off with a bang, and a few baiting cases were made. Many hunters brought
down their limit, as the number of doves in the area seemed to be up. Teal season
followed with a few hunters “mistakenly” shooting wood ducks instead of teal.
Now deer season is open across the state, and some cool weather has come with it.
Hunters are reminded that they must wear a minimum of a hunter orange cap while
hunting on private land, and a vest and cap must be worn on public ground during
the open deer gun season. We are still seeing some deer hunters either not tagging
or using the wrong tag on their deer. Night hunting and trespassing complaints
seem to be coming in daily. I’ve always said that it’s a lot cheaper to go to the store
and buy a pound of ground beef than it is to burn the gas and chance getting caught
hunting illegally. I guess the thrill of the chase and the adrenaline rush is more than
some people can take. We have had a statewide burn ban in effect for many weeks
now. Several thousands of acres of Kisatchie National Forest burned throughout
most of October in Natchitoches parish. These fires are easily started by lightning,
cigarettes, and even people welding on lease gates (yes, that really happened in
Winn parish). Senior Agent Ronnie Robertson had open heart surgery, which went
well. He is quickly recovering. We all hope he returns soon. Let’s stay safe, warm,
and dry this hunting season. And enjoy it all you can, because before you know it,
the dog days of summer will be back.

ONLY FIVE OVER
By Scotty Delaney
I
t’s funny how things work out sometimes. You
go from not making a case to making one just up
the road. Sgt. Curt Belton, Sr. Agt. Russell Brack,
and I spent the night of October 3 doing our best to
catch an outlaw who allegedly shot from his truck
after dark. After an unsuccessful interrogation of
the suspect by Curt and Russell, we called it a night.
The next morning, I returned to the site to try and
locate a shell casing,
deer, or anything else
that might help us.
While I was looking
around, I heard several
shots throughout the
morning just up the
highway from me.
Needless to say, I
never found any other
evidence, so I decided
to try to pinpoint the
shots. I drove onto a
nearby hunting club
and found a truck
parked. In the bed of the truck was a bucket full of
squirrel hides. Apparently, whoever was driving
the truck had a good opening weekend of squirrel
hunting. I definitely wanted to hang around to check
the driver. After waiting for about 20 minutes, I saw
a hunter approaching the truck. When I made contact
with him, he said he had been squirrel hunting and
had to stop so he could get to work. Bear in mind that
its only 9 am at this time. After I checked his licenses,
I asked him how many he had, to which he replied
the standard, “A few.” He started pulling squirrels
out of his bag, and I expected him to stop at five or
six. When he got to eight, I could still see several
more tails in his bag. He just kept on pulling them out
until he got to 13. I thought it was kind of odd that
he didn’t appear hesitant or nervous at all. I asked
him what he thought the limit on squirrels was, and
he said, “It’s 16, right?
That’s what it says in
the pamphlet.” I saw
the air run out of him
when I told him that
the limit was 8 per day,
and he was 5 over. So I
pulled out the hunting
pamphlet and explained
the daily and possession
limits. I asked him
about the bucket full
of hides in his truck,
and he said that was
all from a weekend of
hunting with his family. I think he was more upset
when I told him that I had to take all of his squirrels
than he was about getting a ticket for over limit. Then
he got worried that his wife wouldn’t ever let him go
squirrel hunting again. After all was said and done,
I told him that it was pretty impressive to kill 13
squirrels before 9 a.m. To that he replied, “I would’ve
had 16, but I missed a few.”

TRICK OR TREAT DOE
By Sr. Agent John Volentine
O
n Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010, Halloween night, I
was finishing up a productive weekend in
Central Louisiana. Area 2 rifle deer season
opened on this weekend and the season was now
officially in full swing. I was finishing my shift on
Camp Beauregard WMA just outside of Pineville,
LA. As darkness was approaching, I was wandering
around outside my patrol unit when I heard two
shots south of me. No gun season was open on the
management area or surrounding area where the
shots came from. I got in my patrol unit and thought
to myself, “Here goes another wild goose chase, and
I’ll probably not find anything.” I headed out of the
WMA and down a road
where I estimated the
shots to come from. I
crept along the gravel
roadway looking
for lights behind a
residence, people
gathered, trick or
treaters, goblins, etc. I
searched the area but
had no luck. I decided
to turn down a dead end
road off the roadway I
was traveling. I found
a family sitting around
a fire (state wide burn
ban) celebrating Halloween and each other’s presence.
I greeted them and introduced myself. I didn’t inform
them why I was in the area because I sensed no
wrong doing, except burn ban. I chatted a minute,
advised them of the state wide burn ban, and rolled
on about my business. By this time I figured I missed
what I knew I heard but couldn’t locate. I drove to a
small parking area next to Esler Airfield to talk to Sr.
Agent Chad Watts on the phone about potential areas
to work this hunting season, bow hunting, and New
Orleans Saints vs. Pittsburg Steelers. After I got off
the phone, I noticed a truck turn into a wooded area
down from where I was parked. I blacked my unit
out and rolled to its location. I drove to a gate where
I saw the truck pulled along side another truck past
the gate. I watched the two trucks drive down a dim
road as I stood at the gate, amazed that they never
acknowledged my approach. I opened the gate and
followed the trucks into a hunting club. I pulled up to
the two individuals standing by their trucks. I asked
what they were up to and they informed me they
were looking for a deer. I asked one of the subjects
if he shot twice and he said yes. BINGO! I observed
a 30/30 rifle on the seat of his truck and asked him
if he shot the deer with the rifle and he stated yes. I
informed him he
was hunting in
Area 1 and rifle
season didn’t open
until November 20,
2010. We debated
his location and
clarified that he was
hunting in Area 1
and the deer he shot
was illegal. I helped
them locate a large
doe and again
stated the only
thing open in this
area was archery
season. The hunter stated that he’s been hunting in
this area for years and thought he was hunting in Area
2. They also inquired how I got through the gate. I
told them I watched one of them go through it and it
was unlocked. I seized the deer, wrote the hunter for
Take Illegal Methods, and Possession of an Illegally
Taken Deer. I ended my shift wondering if it’s better
to be good or just plain lucky. After further thought,
I concluded that luck is a good friend to have and
Halloween gives game wardens treats every now and
then.

ell, it’s almost been a whole year now since
the agents of what used to be Region 4
transitioned over to Region 3. I would like
to take this opportunity to say a much needed thank
you. And I know I speak for all of the rest of the
agents, whenever I say thank you to all of the agents
of Region 3 and to Mrs. Christy for a very warm
welcome into the region. This transition has been a
very smooth process and we are all looking forward
to spending many more years working with the fellow
agents of Region 3.

H
ello, everyone, from Region 4! The weather has been unusually warm so
far this hunting season. You could have hunted teal, doves and squirrels
with shorts and flip flops. The lack of rain has also made hunting more of
a challenge. Despite these weather conditions, agents in Region 4 have been busy
this hunting season. Several good migratory game cases were made and as I write
tonight, cases have been made around the Region. I have received reports from
several agents that they are coming across boating safety violations on hunters
and camp goers. Just because you’re hunting doesn’t mean you can slack off
on boating safety. Check your safety equipment before each trip even if it’s two
o’clock in the morning and you’re on your way to the stand or blind. Wear your
pfd’s and always be cautious of hypothermia. On a Region note, I would like to
congratulate Sgt. Cliff Ortis on receiving the NASBLA Boating Safety Officer of
the Year Award. Well, we
hope everyone has a safe
and successful hunting
season. Remember to
wear hunter’s orange
while deer hunting and
don’t forget your safety
belts in those stands.

HOMEMADE SEINE
By Sr. Agent Alan Marbury
A
s the hunting season kicks off and the weather
gets cooler, we spend most of our time in the
woods working hunters. On Sunday, October
24, things turned out a little bit different. I came out at
1:00 p.m. and was going to try to catch up with some
evening hunters before working night hunters. As I
got on the Mississippi River levee in Brusly, I began
traveling south. Along this stretch of the levee there
are several pits between the levee and the river. When
the river rises it restocks them with fish. As the word
spreads, more and more people want to try their luck
at catching some fish. They generally catch white
perch, bream, black bass, and catfish. I made my way
to one of the most popular spots and what I saw was a
little different than what I’m used to seeing. Stretched
across the center and most narrow part of the pit was
some plastic netting material being used to block off
the fish. There was another piece of this material with
a chain and several pieces of brick tied to the bottom
and a stick tied to each end to use as handles. Jed and
Jed Jr. would drag the weighted net through the pit
like a seine trapping the fish and forcing them up to
the bank where Jed’s uncle and wife would help them
sort through the fish. They tried saying they were
just trying to catch some shad to use as catfish bait
but when I looked in the other two ice chests their
facial expressions changed. They were catching black
bass, white perch, bream, catfish, and bait fish and
keeping everything that would stay in the net. After I
sorted through the fish there were a total of 20 black
bass, 64 white perch, 13 bream, one catfish and half
an ice chest of baitfish. The two nets were seized
as evidence and all fish were seized and donated or
returned to the water.

GOING FOR GOLD!
By T.J. Ashley
O
n another cold and damp night working night
hunters in West Baton Rouge Parish, I was
riding with Sr. Agent Channing Duval and
Sgt. Brad Garon was set up on some deer along the
levee. The evening had started pretty uneventfully as
they normally do. To reiterate the weather was just
down rite COLD that night and Sr. Agent Duval and
I were just about to set up on a wheat field and enjoy
some good ole community thermos coffee when ol’
Sarge called us over the radio and told us to “get on
over here, I got somethin’ goin on.” While we were
in route I called Sgt. Garon to see what was going
on. Sarge advised me that a vehicle had passed by
him slowly and had stopped not far from where he
was at. A little while after the vehicle stopped he had
heard a couple of shots from a small caliber rifle.
Sr. Agent Duval and I arrived in the area a couple
of minutes later and we had the parked car boxed in.
Not a minute after parking and getting out to listen
we heard 4 more shots, this time closer to us than
Sgt. Garon. What were they shooting across that
levee? I could only imagine as my adrenaline began
to pump! We all had decided that it would be best for
the outlaws to come back to us instead of us going
to them and risk them slipping out and escaping
by way of their vehicle. In the mean time we heard
only two more shots that were quite a few minutes
later than the last four we had heard and then a long
period of silence. When I was just getting to the point
where I couldn’t take it any more Sgt. Garon called
and said that they were slowly coming across the
levee and making their way back to the vehicle. Sgt.
Garon then initiated the stop. Bodabing, Bodaboom!
As Sr. Agent Duval and I rolled up I could see two
damp and scared knuckleheads we will call Phelps
and Spitz and one scared and dry little knucklehead.
Upon questioning they spilled the beans. They said
that they knew there were a lot of deer here and they
had decided in their infinite wisdom to go out and
shoot one. Sure enough they had, a doe that they
had drug slowly back across the levee and she was
laying right there with the rifle they had used. Upon
talking with them curiosity got the better of me and I
asked why Phelps and Spitz were half wet. Well, the
proceeded to tell the story that they had shot the doe
and crippled her. She ran off a ways and fell. As they
approached her the second time she jumped and ran
towards the bar pit where they shot at her a few more
times as she was swimming the bar pit. They watched
her cross and collapse as she exited the far side. What
else could Phelps and Spitz do but strip down to their
Speedos and swim to the other side a retrieve the
illegally taken deer and swim back with it (I can’t
make this stuff up, it just happens!). Man, what would
I give to have been a cow on the levee watching this
crew! I’m sure with the temperature that night the
real Michael Phelps and Mark Spitz would not have
stood a chance swimming against these knuckleheads.
Anyway, for there trouble, Phelps and Spitz were able
to spend the night warming up in the WBR detention
facility and the little knucklehead was released back
to his family.

SO MUCH MORE
By T.J. Ashley
U
pon taking this job, I knew it would be
different than any other. I knew that I would
be outdoors checking hunters, fishermen, and
working boating safety. I also knew in taking the job
that our line of work is always evolving as Game
Wardens. But still there are those days when you get
back home and see your family and your mind peers
back into the events of the day. You just kind of sit
there with a mixture of feelings that are sometimes
hard to express. It may be a feeling of thanks for what
you have or you may just sit in awe, and ponder...
what if? This is a story about one of those nights.
It was an average day of being out on patrol and
I had just arrived back home about 10:40 at night. I
was about to pick up the mic in order to tell dispatch
that I was at home and out of service, when dispatch
called for a Pointe Coupee Parish Agent. Well, my
initial thought was, “Isn’t this just dandy!” I could
practically feel the sheets of my warm bed as I
responded to dispatch’s call. Dispatch had advised
me to call them, which typically is not a good sign.
Dispatch then proceeded to inform me that they
had received a call from the sheriff’s office that a
gentleman had sent text messages to his daughters
stating that he was going out to Sherburne WMA
with a gun and that he was not coming back, and that
he loved them…
I then called Sgt. Brad Garon in order to form
a game plan, in order to locate and recover the
gentleman. We decided to split up; I would come in
from the south and Sgt. Garon would come in from
the north in order to cover the 50,000 acres that

composed Sherburne. As I made my way through
the twisting gravel roads, my mind raced trying
to prepare myself for what I was going to find.
Seemingly driving forever, I finally located a small
truck covered in dew, which matched the description
of the gentleman’s truck, backed in near a tree line.
I approached the truck slowly and activated my
takedown lights in order to see inside the cab of the
truck. To my surprise, there was the gentleman, moving
his head around in order to avoid my bright lights.
Training took over and I was able to safely remove the
gentleman from the truck with no incident. Next to him,
on the center console, was a locked and cocked .40 cal
S&W and on the floor board was a case of beer that he
had drunk about a quarter of the way through.
I then secured the weapon and advised Sgt.
Garon of my position in order for him to assist. Sgt.
Garon was about 15 minutes out so what else could
I do besides talk with the gentleman? During the
conversation, I was able to gain some insight about
him and his family. Come to find out, his daughter
and I were in high school together. After establishing
So Much More
some dialogue with the gentleman, I was able to get
him to call his daughters in order to tell them that he
was still here, that he loved them, and that as soon as
he could he wanted to hold them.
Sgt. Garon soon after arrived with the sheriff’s
office who advised the gentleman that he would have
to be checked in to a hospital in order to receive some
help. The gentleman was grateful and went peacefully.
Now, I don’t know what has happened to the
gentleman from that experience and I don’t know
where he is today. But I know for me it was an
experience of lifetime. In this line of work, we as
agents have the unfortunate experience of dealing
with death from time to time and it almost becomes
just another person who did not make it. Rarely is the
situation one that allows you to come in contact with
a person before they cross the line. It just reaffirms
that life is fragile and our relationships with people,
whoever they are, should be treasured and not taken
for granted. Furthermore, as agents we are not out
here to just check licenses and write tickets…this job
is so much more.

A
s I am writing
this, hunting
season has
kicked off and Agents
in Region 5 have not
stopped since. Due to
the opening of a special
red snapper season, an
Agent in Region 5 could
find himself 60 miles
offshore in the Gulf of
Mexico one day and a
mile into the woods the
next day! I must say, we
go from one extreme to
another. In doing so, I
have to admit, it makes
the job worth your wild
and keeps you on your
toes.
In the coastal parishes,
we have been working
many hours on the bays
and lakes. The amount
of fish being caught has
increased dramatically
over the past months.
Anglers have been
able to fill their limits
with nice trout and
redfish on a regular
basis. The shrimp
have been gathering
up well off South
Point. We received
several complaints of
commercial shrimpers
trawling at night in
Vermilion Bay where
it is illegal to shrimp
at night. We patrolled
the areas where the
complaints generated
and were able to
catch some shrimpers
shrimping at night. The
violators were cited.
We would like to thank
all of the concerned
outdoorsmen for the
complaints they gave
us. Also, the 5C Agents
would like to give
credit to the Region 4B
agents that assisted us in
making the case.
Not only are we
checking fisherman,
but we have also been
working teal hunters.
Opening morning, we
managed to catch a few
hunters that possessed
ducks other than teal.
The hunters were issued
federal citations.
In our northern
parishes, we have
focused allot of our time
on West Bay WMA. On
the first either-sex deer
weekend, hundreds
of hunters took to the
management area.
Close to a hundred deer,
mostly bucks, were
harvested from the
WMA in only two days.
We were able to show a
strong officer presence
all weekend. We were
able to visit with many
hunters and answer
questions they had.
All in all, business in
Region 5 is normal. As
I close, remember that a
life jacket will not work
if YOU don’t wear it and
that safety doesn’t start
in the field or boat… it
starts at home.

SNEAKY SHRIMPERS
By Sr. Agent Jonathan Verret
I
t was during the week when I got a call from a
Federal Agent stating that shrimp were running
on Hog Island Gully on Sabine Federal Refuge
in Cameron Parish. The Federal Agent told us that
he was unable to go work that area because he was
out of town. Sr. Agent Sean Moreau and I loaded
up in my unit and we headed toward the Refuge.
We did not expect to see as many people as we did.
When we arrived there was at least 75 to 80 people
cast netting for shrimp off a wharf. The shrimp,
indeed, were running that day. People were catching
their limit of a five gallon bucket (per vehicle) of
shrimp in a matter of minutes. The count size of
the shrimp was averaging 16-20’s. Moreau and I
started checking several subjects for their fishing
license. We were checking licenses from people all
over Louisiana. They had heard about how good the
shrimp were running, and some drove from Monroe
and Alexandria. Moreau and I noticed some subjects
starting to hurry to their vehicles to try to leave
while we checked licenses. I told Moreau that I had
a game plan. “We will use my unit and park it by the
entrance. That way, people will have to pass by us in
order to leave and we can check each vehicle on its
way out for their limit.”
While checking vehicles, I noticed this one guy
grabbing his ice chest and putting it into the back of
his SUV. I could see his friends continued shrimping,
putting the shrimp into another small ice chest and a
tan bucket. I got a feeling that they were going to try
to get one by us. I told Moreau that I was going to
check the SUV and see how many shrimp they had

in the large ice chest in the back of the SUV. I called
the driver of it over and asked to see his shrimp. He
opened the ice chest and I saw that the 48 quart ice
chest was a little less than half full. If you do the
math a 48 quart ice chest holds twelve gallons, so half
of that is six gallons. I told the man that he and his
friends needed to check their limits before they kept
fishing. I told Moreau that I had a plan; I was going
to leave in my unit and he would stay and watch the
subjects in the SUV. I drove off and Moreau hid in
the brush, watching as the subjects kept filling up the
small ice chest and transporting it into the larger ice
Sneaky Shrimpers
chest.
I got a call over the radio to come back to
Hog Island Gully. Moreau had stopped the SUV on
its way out. When I arrived, Moreau had the four
subjects outside the SUV with their shrimp. The large
ice chest was about ¾ full at this time, the tan five
gallon bucket was about half full, and the small ice
chest had about 20 shrimp in it. We filled up a five
gallon bucket almost three times with their shrimp. It
was estimated that they had caught fourteen gallons
of shrimp. That is nine gallons above the limit. They
tried to tell us that they thought the limit was a five
gallon bucket per person. I answered them, “I told the
driver what the limit was and ya’ll waited till I left
to try to sneak off the refuge.” We issued citations to
each of the four subjects. After that, we did not have
another over the limit case the rest of the day.

SONAR LESSON BY PHONE
By Sr. Agent Michael Flurry
L
et me began by telling a little about myself.
My name is Michael Flurry and I have been
in law enforcement for about seven years. I
have learned that in this occupation, there are several
situations you can be faced with where you lack
experience, but good judgment and a level head can
go a long way. I have been in several incidents that
I have had no clue what I was doing, but this certain
incident, I think, takes the cake.
I left the Lake Charles Police Department
in 2009 and moved to Wildlife and Fisheries
Enforcement Division to better my career. When I
became an Agent, I did not know what to expect, but
I quickly learned to expect the unexpected.
This particular incident occurred on the Sabine
River in Calcasieu Parish. Our agency received a
call that a boat accident had occurred and our
assistance was required. Sgt. Aaron Herpin
and I responded. Once we arrived, we learned
from several witnesses that a gentleman in a 10
foot fiberglass boat was making a run down the
river at approximately 65 miles per hour when
he lost control and flipped into the water. They
told us that the operator nearly severed his arm.
Fortunately, there was a vessel near by that
rendered medical treatment. The witnesses also
stated that the vessel sunk to the bottom of the
river. We then launched our investigation.
Sgt. Herpin acquired the necessary
information to complete his boat accident
report, then gave consent to several of
Agent Flurry using the sonar to locate submerged
vessel.

the operator’s friends to retrieve the
submerged vessel. I followed five boats
to the location of the accident to assist in
locating the vessel. After about four hours
of dragging for the sunken boat with no
success, we asked the Calcasieu Parish
Sheriff’s Office for assistance.
Once the deputy with Calcasieu
Parish Sheriff’s Office arrived on scene,
he had sonar equipment in the back of
his unit. We loaded the sonar onto a 14
foot flat and began setting it up. The
deputy told me that he did not have much
experience operating the equipment, but
we could call his supervisor if we had any
problems. The deputy also told me since
he really did not know how to operate the
sonar, I could do it. This is one of those
situations I was telling you about when I
had no clue what I was doing. Well, it took
all of five minutes before we had problems
and I was on the phone with his supervisor. I was
getting a crash course on sonar operations over the
telephone. After about 10 minutes of phone teaching,
I still was not getting an image on the computer. At
that very moment, I looked up and saw a plug sitting
on the deck of the bow. I asked the supervisor if that
plug was relevant to making the image appear on
the screen and he responded, “It does help when the
sonar is plugged into the computer.” Once I plugged
in the proper wire, the image appeared and we were
in business. The image that appeared on the screen
showed everything located on the bottom of the river
floor from small debris to massive logs. The deputy
and I made two passes and located the submerged
vessel that people spent hours dragging for. I was
simply amazed by how this technology worked and
how beneficial it was to the investigation.
Once the vessel was located, it was brought to
the surface and Sgt Herpin was able to complete that
portion of his investigation. I would like to thank the
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Department for their rapid
response and for the professionalism the deputies
showed on that day.

W
elcome all!
It has been
a very hot
and hectic summer for
the guys here in Region
6. We have been busy
continuing to work the
BP Deep Water Horizon
Oil Spill. Things are
finally beginning to get
back to normal as the
cool weather moves
in. The teal season for
us here in region 6 was
very poor. We had very
few teal in the area
and therefore no teal
means no one to hunt
them. The cool weather
is moving in quickly
this year, so hopefully
we will have a great
hunting season after the
hard summer that south
Louisiana had for its
residents.
As hunting season
is opening, I would like
to remind deer hunters
about the mandatory
tagging system
Louisiana has in place.
Also, to all you hunters
that go to your hunting
areas via boat, if your
motor is hand tiller and
your vessel is under 16’,
everyone onboard your
vessel is required to
REGION 6
UPDATE
wear their PFD’s. Along with the PFD requirement,
you must also wear the kill switch lanyard at all
times on all hand tiller motors no matter the length.
Remember to be safe and enjoy your hunting. Don’t
forget to purchase your licenses as hunting season is
upon us.
I would like to once again thank all of the
Northern regions for their help and time they spend
working with us during the summer. I would also like
to congratulate Sr. Agt. Jeff Boyd and his wife Ashley
on the birth of their first child, William Boyd V.

DUCK HUNTIN’ SOUTHERN STYLE...
YEAH!!!
By Agent Ryan Breaux
I
t was Sunday, September 12, 2010, the second day
of the opening weekend of teal season. I and Sr.
Agent Dean Aucoin were scheduled to work from
10:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. I had called Dean Saturday
night to see what our plans were for Sunday. Dean
told me that he and Agent Thomas Wolf had found
a place where some guys were shooting after hours
and were shooting migratory game birds other than
teal, but they could not get to them because of terrain
conditions.
Sunday morning, I met up with Dean at his
residence a little after 10:00 a.m. He had a pirogue
in the bed of his unit. My thoughts then were, “This
was going to be an interesting night.” I climbed into
Dean’s unit and off we went. There was a Hunter’s
Education Class going on at Terrebonne Parish
Sheriff’s Office shooting range where we were asked
to speak, so we went to do our good deed for the day
and spoke to the kids and the parents about some of
the new laws and regulations.
After that stop was really when our day started.
We went by Sgt. Richard Purvis’s residence to pick
up the 14 foot flat and an additional pirogue. So, off
we were! We arrived to the boat launch where we
continued to Lake Boudreaux. It was about 2:00 pm
when we arrived at the place where Dean and Thomas
had seen the guys the previous day. We began moving
slowly on the back side of a rock levee, trying to
sneak into where we wanted to go in the marsh, not
knowing if these guys showed up early.
We parked the flat and put our hip boots on and
continued to the other side of the levee. We waited
a little while before entering the alligator and snake
infested marsh to see if these guys showed up early
to hunt, but no one had. We then eased into the five
foot marsh grass in search for their duck blind. I went
right and Dean
went left. I saw
this open area
with water in
it. (Note: it was
low tide so there
wasn’t water
everywhere.) I
was scanning
around the
perimeter and I
spotted a duck
blind of some

sort and some spent shotgun shells on the ground.
Dean and I pulled out of the immediate area and went
back to the flat to get our goodies (ticket books, paper
to log down the shots, and, not to mention, water.)
It was scorching hot out there!!! We tried to gather
ourselves after walking throughout this marsh, got a
drink of water, and discussed how we were going to
take these guys down if they showed up.
In the distance we saw some mighty dark clouds
starting to build. The wind was starting to blow and
pick up a little at a time. Now what do we do? We
called our meteorologist, Sr. Agent Stephen Rhodes,
who did a great job of keeping us posted on the
weather that was moving in on us.
Stephen told us what we didn’t want to hear. This
extremely bad storm was coming straight for us. The
waves started getting bad quickly. After debating our
options, we decided to leave and seek shelter. We
loaded up and got out of harm’s way.
We got to this camp that was very (or should I
say overly) nice to get out of the weather. I grabbed
the bow line looking for a place to tie off. Dean told
me to tie off on a certain pole. Now this pole was
about two feet high and there were some little black

things mounted onto it. Having
only this storm in mind, I
threw the rope over this little
pole and… you can’t imagine
what happened next. The alarm
went off and all the lights on
this awesome camp came on!!!
The little black things that were
mounted on the little pole?
Yeah, they were censors! Now
what do we do? Dean called
the Sheriff’s Office to let them
know that it was us who set off
the alarm and that everything
was fine.
Now we were sitting under
the porch and it was storming
with wind, lightning, and a
whole bunch of rain. We were
wondering if our day could actually get any worse.
Yes, it could! These guys could be a no show and
everything we had gone through could go off into the

wind… literally!
Well, the rain passed, so we made our way back
to our little stake out spot. We were sitting there
whispering to one another about how these guys
might not show up because of the weather conditions.
At 5:10 p.m. we heard what we had been anxiously
waiting for… people. But the only problem was that
they were not setting up in the duck blind that we
found which was to the right of us. They set up about
70 yards to the left of us. Now we had to change our
plan of attack.
We were waiting it out. There were a few birds
flying but they were high. Dean looked at me and
said, “Just wait. You ain’t seen nothing yet.”
Now we were trying to locate exactly where
the people were so we peeked every now and then. I
finally spotted them. I lined them up with an out of
place tree in the tree line miles away. I told Dean that
one of these guys had a mustache. I know that’s odd,
but I was being observant.
Well, 6:30 p.m. rolled around and, because of
Duck Huntin’ Southern Style
the cloud cover, we were loosing light quick. Dean
looked at me and asked, “You think we should move
in closer?”
I answered, “This is your rodeo. I’m up for
whatever you want to do.”
After we talked about it ,we waited about another
15 minutes. I asked Dean, “How are we going to get
closer?”
His answer was, “We are going to crawl!”
I looked at him in awe with my mouth open!
Off we went, crawling through the marsh trying to
get closer to these guys while trying not to spook the
birds that were flying overhead. These guys were
now shooting like it was going out of style. The birds
were starting to dump into the marsh and, needless to
say, these guys weren’t a good shot. Good for them,
‘cause we crawled about 15 yards within their blind.
It was well past shooting hours so Dean told me that
we were going to move in after their next shot. Now

the adrenaline was really pumping. BOOM BOOM!!!
They shot again, bringing a teal down to the marsh
mud. The teal fell within feet of us.
The guy with the mustache was the retriever so
when he got to the down teal, we jumped out and
identified ourselves as Wildlife and Fisheries and told
both of them to show us their hands. Dean took the
retriever and I took the one they call “Joe Dirt”.
We talked to these guys, telling them that
we’d been watching them since they showed up.
Remember how I was in awe about crawling through
the marsh? Yeah, well, these guys were more in awe
than I was!! Their faces dropped like a shooting star.
We wrote their tickets while the birds kept coming in
like mosquitoes. It was unbelievable!! The retriever,
for some reason, picked up his foot and we not
only noticed that this guy was wearing shorts to his
knees, but he also didn’t have any shoes on! He was
barefooted!! Just when you think you’ve seen it all,
you discover that you haven’t.
So even though we thought that it wasn’t going
to pay off ‘cause everything that we could think of
went wrong, we didn’t give up. Everything couldn’t
have come together more perfectly. “Joe Dirt” was
charged with Hunting After Hours and Taking MGB
Other Than Teal during teal season and the retriever
was charged with Hunting After Hours, Taking MGB
Other than Teal during teal season, No Federal Duck
Stamp, No State Duck Stamp, No Basic Hunting
License, and Unplugged Gun.
Needless to say, the retriever should stick to
retrieving!!

I NEED A LICENSE?
By Nick Guillory
W
ell, this patrol started a little differently than
some of the rest. It was the beginning of
April, so there was no more hunting going
on. The wind was blowing about 20 miles an hour,
so there wasn’t that much fishing, either. Basically, I
thought the day was going to be pretty boring, riding
around trying to find someone to check, talk to, or
help out. You all know those days.
So there I was, traveling down a small two lane
that cuts through the marsh connecting Cocodrie to
Dulac. As I got toward the middle, I noticed a small
truck with a small trailer attached to it. However, the
truck was back up on top of some rocks; well, they
were more like boulders. The trailer was still in the
water. The trailer was so small that my first thought
was that it was definitely a small boat with a small
motor. Here’s the tricky part: the wind was blowing
20 + miles an hour and someone was in the lake in a
12-14 foot aluminum boat??? Hmm.
As I approached the truck, I saw someone
sleeping in the passenger seat. I then got out and
went to tap on the windshield. This lady looked as if
she just saw the Grim Reaper. Upon speaking with
the lady, she told me that her boyfriend was just on
a joy ride to the camp. A joy ride to the camp? I kept
my cool and told her, “OK ma’am, I’m going back
on patrol. Call our department if you need anything.”
Now, during the time that I was speaking with the
woman, I noticed that she was shaking like a salt
shaker. And what she didn’t know was that there
wasn’t a camp around that area that her boyfriend
could get to. Oops.
After I told her that I was leaving, I went down
the road a little and parked in the marsh. I grabbed my
binoculars and started looking for the “boyfriend”. Lo
and behold, I spotted him. But he wasn’t headed to a
camp; he was checking every crab trap that he came
across. GOT ‘CHA!
I waited and watched as he checked 39 crab traps,
all with different markings. The bad thing was that I
also noticed a second person with him. That person’s
job was to bail the water out of the boat. The wind
was so bad that the waves were crashing into their
boat causing it to fill up with water. Now, I was right,
the boat was a small 12-14 foot boat aluminum boat
with a small hand tiller motor on the back.
I waited until the subject pulled back to the
vehicle. Then I showed up one more time. This time
the “boyfriend” looked like a deer in headlights. I
approached the boyfriend, let’s call him Boudreaux,
to find out what was going on. Boudreaux told me
that he and his nephew were catching some crabs.
Oh, really? Well, when Boudreaux was asked who
the traps were for, he stated that they were all his.
Oh, really? So, when Boudreaux was asked for his
commercial, crab trap, crab gear, and vessel licenses,
he stated… “Hmm... I need a license for that?”
Hmm... YES, YOU DO!

Boudreaux stated that he wasn’t a commercial
fisherman and that the crabs were for his own
consumption. Boudreaux was now asked if he had a
gear license and he stated “Hmm... I need a license
for that too?” Hmm... YES, YOU DO!
Upon further investigation, the “nephew” that
was in the vessel with Boudreaux turned out to be 11
years old. I asked Mr. Boudreaux why the child didn’t
have his vest on and he stated that he didn’t know that
the child needed one. I then asked Boudreaux why
he didn’t have his PFD on and he stated again that
he didn’t think he needed to in that boat. I decided to
run Boudreaux through dispatch and come to find out,
he’d been cited before for “failure to have PFD on
child under 13” and warned for “tiller control vessel
without PFD” and “tiller control vessel without safety
lanyard.” Wow!
Now, this goes farther. Upon checking out the
vessel, it didn’t have a number on it. Upon running
the HIN number, the vessel was registered to
I Need a License?
Boudreaux’s brother and has been expired for two
years.
Now, the citations came pouring out. The
subject was cited for Theft of Contents, Fail to Have
PFD on Person Under 17 (new law), Expired Boat
Registration, Hand Tiller No PFD, and Hand Tiller
No Safety Lanyard.

MOSTLY CLOUDY,
WITH A SILVER LINING
By Sr. Agent Stephen Rhodes
S
chool was cranking up for my kids and as
always, after a summer off, the kids were not
super motivated to get up, or get ready for
school. I was taking the matter well in hand and
was going to get the kids off with barely a minute to
spare. That was until my 1 year old decided to give
me a rather large present. Now, I am sure that all the
major diaper brands have done extensive testing to
determine how to best design diapers to do their job,
but I can say honestly that my son decided to ignore
those tests. A quick bath, diaper, and new clothes later
put us 15 minutes late for me to get the kids dropped
off at the bus stop.
I headed back home to start getting ready for my
day at work. I looked in the mountain of washed but
unfolded clothes for a clean uniform and couldn’t
find one. No biggie; I had some time before I started
my shift. I decided to do a load of laundry. I put a
batch of clothes in to wash and went to hit the shower.
An hour or so later, I remembered the laundry and
went to move it over to the dryer. When I opened the
door to the laundry room I detected the very distinct
smell of burnt wires and discovered a load of wet and
soapy clothes. This could have been overcome easily.
I could have just picked the best dirty uniform I had
and worn it. I, however, was really smart and had put
all my uniforms to wash at the same time. I headed
back to the bathroom and hand washed my clothes
the best I could. I barely clocked in on time and
headed to work with slightly damp work clothes.
I called ahead to my work partner, Marcus
Constance, and told him that I had hit a snag but was
on my way. I had no sooner hung up the phone when
I heard the ding of my gas gauge. “Are you kidding?”
I was dead tired the last shift I worked and had
forgotten to fuel my truck. I fueled up and headed
down to Cocodrie, Louisiana, giving Marcus another
call on the way down to let him know I would be later
still. I think he could hear the frustration in my voice
and he just gave me his ol’, “I’ll be here waiting.”
Once I finally arrived and met up with Marcus, I
apologized for being late and gave him a rundown of
my day so far. He laughed and then looked me in the
eye and said, “Yeah, I’m not gonna work with you
today.” He laughed some more and then told me that
he had made some really good cases on days when he
thought he needed to go home, go back to bed, and
try again. I took in what he had said, but didn’t have a
lot of confidence.
I was anxious to get out on the water, having
gotten a late start, so we jumped into one of our 21’

Whalers and headed out. The patrol was to focus on
Closed Areas due to the BP spill and Closed Season
Shrimping. We made a big swing just inside the
barrier islands and came to rest behind Wine Island
to wait for it to get darker before we tried to find any
violators attempting to get an early start on the Shrimp
season. Marcus is a big camera bug so he was taking
pictures while I waited for dark and worked on my
inner calm. It was soon close enough to dark for us to
get back underway, and we headed for Bayou Coyell.
Just before we hit the mouth of the bayou, our engine
alarm went off and I stopped the boat to see what was
going on. To start with, I figured I’d check the oil, so I
followed the procedure of tilting the engine up, waiting
a few minutes, and then tilting it down. I was busy
tilting the engine back down when Marcus pointed
out some oil dripping out of the engine cover. Great.
I removed the engine cover and after a little poking
around, I found the dip stick out of place inside the
cowling. Lucky for us, we had extra oil and after 30-40
minutes, we were able to get back underway.
Marcus and I were in agreement that the safest
course would be to just head back in, in case there was
something else that might go wrong. By now it was
good and dark as we worked our way back. I noticed a
Mostly Cloudy, With a Silver Lining
light in front of us and in the direction we were headed,
and stopped the boat. Marcus asked what was up and
I told him that I thought I was looking at a trawl boat
headed out. A look through binoculars confirmed that it
was what appeared to be a trawl boat. We were a good
week away from the official start of the season and BP
didn’t run boats at night.
We backed off and waited for the boat to move
past us. We kept our distance and slowly followed
him out to the northern end of Lake Pelto. He
stopped his boat and we did too, nosing up against a
little marsh island. The wait lasted 10 minutes, and
almost not believing my eyes, I watched as he began
lowering his skimmer nets into the water. We pulled
up after he had gotten about five minutes worth of
skimming done. “Who told you?” were the first
words out of his mouth. “No one; we just happened
to be in the right place, at the wrong time …for you.”
He again asked if we had been tipped off; and I told
him no. The irony of it was that if not for at least
some of my “bad” luck slowing us down, we could
have easily missed him. After writing him and his
deck hand for closed season skimming, and closed
area (BP spill), we seized his nets and sent him on his
way. Unbelievable!

LWAA SUPPORTS
LOCAL YOUTH HUNTERS
By Sr. Agent Scott Dupre
T
his past summer, local youth hunter Elijah Dupre,
who is the son of Enforcement Agent Scott Dupre,
competed in YHEC(Youth Hunter Education
Challenge) at Camp Grant Walker located in Pollock
LA. Elijah was thirteen at the time of the competition
and had placed 8th overall at the state level which
qualified him to compete at the national level. This took
place in Mansfield, Pa., during the summer. He attended
this event as an individual and also as a member of
a 5 man team consisting of four other youth hunters
from the state of LA. However, a trip like this was very
expensive and money had to be raised somehow. LWAA
members from Region 6 voted and decided that they
would help out with the future of hunting and donated
$500 in the form of a Lifetime combination hunting and
fishing license. This license would be then raffled off
in order to raise money to send these youths to such a
prestigious competition held annually by the National
Rifle Association. This was also an attempt to draw
more youths into the sport of hunting. The competition
consisted of eight different events which are as follows:
.22 cal long rifle, 50 cal muzzleloader, 3D archery,
sporting clays, wildlife identification, hunter safety trail,
orienteering event, and the hunter safety exam.
Thanks to the support from the LWAA, Louisiana
was able to send some of the finest young
outdoorsmen to the competition. Nearly $3,000 was
raised by raffling the license. The young outdoorsmen
did well in the competition. Elijah placed 58th overall
as an individual out of more than 200 competitors.
The five man team placed forth overall and third in
the orienteering event. They represented the state well
and hopefully someday will carry on the tradition of
hunting and good sportsmanship in the field to the
next generation of youth outdoorsmen and women.

UPDATE

reetings from
Region 7…
By the time
this issue goes to print,
the 2010/2011 deer and
small game seasons
will be drawing to a
close and folks who are
fixated on gobblers will
be anxiously awaiting
the opening of turkey
season. We hope you
had a safe and successful
autumn hunting season,
that your freezer is
full of venison, and
that your trophy is at
the taxidermist being
processed. If you plan
to go turkey hunting,
we strongly encourage
you to familiarize
yourself with tagging
requirements and
prepare yourself to
remain in compliance
with regulations. We
wrote a lot of tickets
in 2010 for tagging
Sgt. Todd Lewis
violations. Hopefully
compliance will quickly
increase and citations
will decrease.
As deer season
ends in 2011, a new and
exciting opportunity
will open in Louisiana.
Nighttime hunting
for hogs, coyotes,
armadillos, nutria and
beaver will commence
thirty minutes after
legal sunset on February
28th, 2011. Here’s the
information from the
2010/2011 Hunting
Regulation pamphlet:
On private property,
the landowner, or his
lessee or agent with
written permission
and the landowner’s
contact information
in his possession, may
take outlaw quadrupeds
(coyotes, armadillos
and feral hogs), nutria
or beaver during the
nighttime hours from
one-half hour after
official sunset on the last
day of February to one-
half hour after official
sunset the last day of
August of that same
year. The method of such
taking shall be limited to
a shotgun no larger than
a No. 10 gauge fired
with buckshot or smaller
or a standard .22 caliber
rimfire firearm, and may
be with or without the
aid of artificial light,
infrared or laser sighting
devices, or night vision
devices.

There seems to
be a bit of confusion
concerning the phrase
“a standard .22 caliber
rimfire firearm”. To clear
things up a bit: this does

include the .22 magnum, the .22 long rifle and the .22
short. It does not include the .17 HMR, which, though
built on a .22 magnum casing, is obviously not a
“standard .22 caliber.”
Many people seem to believe that nighttime
hunting for hogs will allow them to make excellent
headway in combating the growing problem of feral
hogs on their properties. I sincerely hope they’re
correct. However, I have doubts. I suppose we’ll find
out in 2011 if nighttime hunting for hogs will be the
magic solution for controlling this particular problem.
After conferring with several “experts”, it’s my
belief that the best way to control hog populations is
through trapping and hunting with dogs. Large round
traps reportedly work best. Personally, I believe the
average hog will quickly learn to avoid both lights
and humans at night.
My most notable concern is safety. In my mind’s
eye; I can’t help but imagine a few guys getting
together for a hog hunt after drinking a few adult
beverages. Next thing ya know, you’ve got three or
six semi-tipsy fella’s running around in the woods all
pumped up to shoot their large shadowy (human size)
quarry. I know this little scenario won’t be “normal”
as most of our sportsmen are responsible enough not
Region 7 Update
to mix guns and alcohol but, realistically, I also know
that this little scenario won’t be terribly uncommon.
It’ll happen and someone, somewhere, will get hurt.
Don’t let it happen on your lease or to your friends or
loved ones.
My second area of concern with nighttime hog
hunting is that the opening of nighttime hunting for
hogs will occur before most bucks have shed their
antlers. Personally, I’d have preferred that it open at
the end of March in hopes that the average buck, in
most areas, would have shed his antlers. I fear that
the temptation will be too difficult for some people to
resist. When Bullwinkle steps out in front of Henry-
the-Hog-Hunter’s spotlight, a law (or several of them)
will be violated. I fear that some people, who were
previously law-abiding hunters, will make a bad
decision in the seconds when Bullwinkle offers them
a nighttime opportunity. It’s a shame but I fear it’s a
fact. My co-workers and I plan to work diligently to
apprehend those who make any such bad decisions.
We probably won’t be very sympathetic about the
decisions they made.
Please remember as you take to the woods that
safety is paramount. We can’t stress it enough. Happy
hunting and good luck!

BEEF VS. VENISON
Author Unknown Submitted by Sgt. T. Lewis
C
ontroversy has long raged about the relative
quality of venison and beef as gourmet foods.
Some people say that venison is tough, with
a strong “wild” taste. Others insist that venison is
tender and that the flavor is delicate. To try and
resolve this issue once and for all, a certified research
group conducted a blind taste test to determine the
truth of these conflicting assertions.
First, a high-choice Holstein steer was selected
and led into a swamp approximately a mile and a half
from the nearest road. It was then shot several times
in various locations throughout the carcass. After
most of the entrails were removed, the carcass was
dragged over cypress knees and logs, through mud
and muck, thrown into the back of a pick-up truck
bed and transported through rain approximately 100
miles before being hung in a tree for the remainder of
the day. During the aging period the temperature was
maintained between 35 - 60 degrees.
Next, the steer was dragged into the shed and
skinned out on the dirt floor. PLEASE NOTE: Strict
sanitary precautions were observed throughout the
processing within the limitations of the butchering
environment. For instance, dogs were allowed to sniff
at the steer carcass but were chased out of the garage
if they attempted to lick the carcass or bite hunks out
of it. Cats were allowed in the garage but were always
immediately removed from the cutting table.
Next half a dozen inexperienced but enthusiastic
individuals worked on the steer with meat saws,
cleavers and dull knives. The result was 200 pounds
of scrap, 375 pounds of soup bones, four bushels of
meat scraps for stew and hamburger, two roasts and a
half a dozen steaks that were an inch and a half thick
on one end and an eighth of an inch on the other.
The steaks were then fried over a varying heat in
a skillet with one pound of butter and three pounds
of onions. After two hours of frying, the contents
of the skillet were served to three blindfolded taste
panel volunteers who were asked if they were eating
venison or beef.
Every one of the panel members was sure they
were eating venison. One of the volunteers even said
it tasted exactly like the venison he had been eating at
the hunting camp for the last 27 years.
The results of this trial showed conclusively that
there is no difference between the taste of beef and
venison.

UMMMMMM… I DON’T THINK SO
By Sr. Agent Randy Lanoux
W
hile I take all aspects of our job seriously, I
take DWI enforcement extremely serious
because we all know what kind of carnage
that can cause behind the wheel. When it comes to
this part of my job, I’m all business. I’ve had all sorts
of encounters with drunk drivers and normally I don’t
have an emotional reaction. Usually I’m indifferent
and I rarely find anything funny about why I’m
arresting this person. Driving drunk is not a laughing
matter. However, there’s always an exception to the
rule and during a recent encounter, I just had to laugh.
Upon coming into contact with a vessel’s
occupants during a stop, I recognized one of the
passengers as an ex-relative. During the inspection
and conversation, luckily, the ex-relative was
distracted and didn’t recognize me so I didn’t have to
deal with that issue. I eventually put the operator of
the vessel into my vessel and took him to the bank for
field sobriety testing. After completing all of the tests,
well, we all know where this is going… we ended up
at an Intoxilyzer, where the guy didn’t fare well.
As I was completing the paperwork and talking
to the guy, it began to sink into him that he was going
to jail. As is common, he started “name dropping” in
a lame attempt to sway my decision as to whether or
not I was going to take him to jail. As I was talking to
him, I acknowledged that I knew all of the people he
was saying but I replied evenly, “It is what it is.” As a
last resort he threw one last name. That’s when I just
stopped and had to laugh.
The guy said to me, “I know somebody who can
get me out of this.”
I responded, “Really? Who?”
He stated, “My girlfriend has a relative that’s a
Game Warden.”
I asked, “Really. Who’s your girlfriend?”
It came as no surprise (because I saw the
girlfriend in the boat) when he told me his girlfriend’s
name.
Chuckling I asked him, “What’s the Game
Warden’s name.”
He responds, “Randy… Randy Lanoux.”
Chuckling, I leaned back in my chair, looked at
him and said, “Oh really… obviously, you haven’t
read my name right here on my shirt in the last hour
you’ve been with me.”
The guy leaned over slightly, looked at my name
tag and said, “R. Lanoux. Oh…you’re Randy Lanoux.”
I said, “Yep.”
He sat back in his chair. A frown crossed his face
as realization paid an unkind visit to his befuddled
mind. Then he laughed and said, “Humph… Guess
you can’t help me.”
I laughed and said, “Ummmmm, I don’t think so.”
Gotta love it. Sometimes ya just gotta laugh.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
By Sr. Agent Randy Lanoux
I
recently had an experience while I was in court
that made me start thinking about why we do what
we do. I ended up suffering a moment of doubt.
I wondered if what we do really makes a difference.
We’ve all been to the scene of a horrific boat accident
where there is much carnage and lots of, well, not so
nice stuff to see. This past May, just like many times
before, we had such an incident on Lake Maurepas in
Livingston Parish. Five young people went out for a
fun day on the water. Their day ended in tragedy with
three people dead and another suffering life-altering
injuries. As always, we investigated the incident. The
investigation resulted in the issuance of citations and
an arrest on criminal charges.
I’ve worked lots of accidents which led to similar
results. As professionals, we try to keep ourselves
separated, not get personally involved, and keep our
emotions in check. It’s the job we do. Sometimes
we’re reminded that it can be hard to maintain that
separation.
On the way out of the court hearing that day a
man shouted to us and indicated that he wished to
talk to us. As the man approached, I noticed he was
a very elderly man with a stooped back and a notable
limping gait that caused him to use a walker to assist
him in maintaining his balance. The man hurriedly
approached and at times appeared as if he were about
to fall over. It was apparent that he didn’t want to
inconvenience us. I begged him to slow down and
hurried to meet him. As we neared one another I
asked, “Can I help you?”
He reached out with a gnarled and wrinkled
hand. I noticed his hand was shaking. He grasped my
hand with a surprisingly firm grip and replied, “I just
wanted to shake the hands of the men that brought my
granddaughter home to me and tell you, thank you.”
As I shook the man’s hand, he clung to my hand and
was obviously reluctant to let go. As I looked into
his eyes ,I saw the tears welling up at the corners
and the pain he was still experiencing from the loss
of his “baby girl.” Eventually, he released my hand
but his eyes spoke volumes to me as he held my gaze
and moved on down the line, shaking the hands of
each of the other agents that were involved in this
investigation. He asked for nothing and simply
wanted to thank us for doing our jobs, for doing it
well and for bringing home his baby girl so that he
could see her go to her final resting place. I confess…
I got a little choked up.
As I got in my truck and drove away, I thought
about the old man. What do you say to someone

like that? There are no words you can say that can
make that person’s pain go away. The loss they’ve
experienced is so often unexplainable and senseless
and usually could have easily been avoided. I reflected
for a few moments asking myself, “Are we doing any
good?” After several minutes or maybe a few hours, of
hashing and re-hashing the whirlwind of thoughts that
cascaded through my mind, I eventually concluded,
once again, that yes, we do make a difference. How
many accidents have been avoided because a D.W.I.
arrest was made or because of a simple boating
safety stop we conducted? How many times have
we been asked a question when we stopped at the
local convenience store for a cup of coffee and our
answer resulted in a saved life? Obviously, we’ll never
know but I tend to believe it happens. In fact, I have
absolutely no doubt that in the end, our actions save
Why We Do What We Do
lives. Granted, some of the people we deal with aren’t
always happy with the results of a stop if they get a
ticket or wind up being arrested for D.W.I., but at least
they’re alive… to be upset.
Accidents are going to occur from time to time
regardless of how strict we may be when we deal with
the public. I like to believe that somewhere during
my travels as an agent, a simple word of advice
or a friendly warning has, at some point in some

place, saved a life. Some accidents (a very small
percentage) are basically unavoidable. Others, despite
our best efforts, are going to occur because someone
somewhere is going to act in an irresponsible,
negligent manner if only for a few seconds. We
just can’t stop them all. We can only be in so many
places and we can only do so much. I do believe that
we save lives on a daily basis; we just don’t always
realize it since no one has a crystal ball that they can
gaze into to tell us what would have happened if we
had not acted. So, once again, I’ve answered my own
question, “Do we make a difference?”
As to why we do what we do… it’s pretty hard to
say that any of us are in it for the money. Each agent
may have a personal list of reasons why they do what
they do, but generally, I believe they all would agree
that they feel they make a difference. One aspect of
our job is that we’re charged with the responsibility of
enhancing safety on our waterways. We’re proactive
in trying to prevent accidents, injuries and deaths. Our
efforts definitely count. When the inevitable happens
we’ll be there to pick up the pieces, conduct our
investigation, bring the loved ones back home and
to seek justice for those that can no longer seek it for
themselves. We help provide closure for families who
have lost loved ones. That’s another big part of why
we do what we do.

H
ello again
from Region
8. Things have
changed quite a bit since
the previous region
update. While the “BP
Patrols” decreased
immensely, they are
still handled diligently
by the Region and
Strike-force personnel
in a more conservative
capacity. Things are
finally starting to get
back to normal, if such
a thing exists in south
east Louisiana. We
had a very productive
teal season in several
portions of the region
both for the hunters and
for the game wardens
(several duck cases
we’ve made). But it was
one of the worst shrimp
seasons ever according
to the commercial
fisherman. Despite that
fact, the inshore fishing
was very consistent
and productive. Some
anglers attribute this
to lack of pressure all
summer due to fishing
closures. Freshwater
fishing was as good as
or better than ever in
the northern Barataria
estuary in the late
REGION 8
summer.
As we move into the game wardens’ favorite
time of year, the outlook is promising. Despite the
tragedy of the oil spill, some good resulted. The Davis
Pond and Canarveron fresh water diversions were
opened to near full capacity for the majority of the
summer. This unusually large influx of freshwater has
left both ecosystems in some of the best conditions
outdoorsmen have seen in decades. The marshes are
teaming with submerged vegetation. The unusually
long drought seems to have helped expedite the
waterfowl migration into the region. In recent weeks,
more and more waterfowl have been appearing with
each front, leading most hunters to optimism as
the duck season nears. While the duck hunters may
welcome the effects of the drought, most of the deer
hunters may have a differing opinion. Either way,
the hunting season is here and the region agents are
anticipating steady hunting activity as more seasonal
weather appears.
Just prior to the oil spill, Region 8 was reduced
by one agent. Sgt. James “Jimmy” Gregoire retired
from the department after a career spanning slightly
over 20 years(with LDWF). I had the pleasure of
working with Jimmy for a few years and consider
the time a privilege. He was always willing to share
his experience with newer agents and made himself
available for guidance and advice to anyone who
needed it. Many of you may know or remember
Jimmy from his time spent as a firearms instructor at
both the academy and during regional recertification.
But the Jimmy that many of you may not have
known was Jimmy as a family man. Above his love
of cooking and classic rock and roll music was his
passion for his family(perhaps his most admirable
quality). Congratulations Jimmy, and thanks for you
service and for your sense of humor. Good luck in any
future endeavors.

CHANGING TIDES PART II:
THE AFTERMATH BEGINS
By Sr. Agent Tim Fox
A
ugust 29, 2005: a day that will live in infamy,
at least in the hearts and minds of residents of
southeast Louisiana and coastal Mississippi.
It took slightly more than 24 hours for Hurricane
Katrina to disseminate the gulf coast and several
cities along the way. But the recovery and rebuilding
are still yet to reach completion more than five years
later.
More recently, the BP oil spill (resulting from
oceanic deepwater rig explosion) was spewing oil
into the deep gulf waters for over 100 days. This
disaster’s duration was abundantly lengthy and the
prescribed recovery is largely unknown. That being
said, the spill doesn’t seem to have many readily
observable effects. Many feel that the true casualties
will only be realized over time as the remaining
oil degrades and the dispersant assimilates into the
waters. At this point only a portion of the immediate
effects of the spill have come to the surface.
Four months after the well was capped, the Gulf of
Mexico near shore waters is holding and supporting
very healthy populations of commonly targeted game
fish. Tuna, red snapper, grouper, cobia and more
have recently been caught with ease by many anglers.
Apparently the food chain was either not effected
or perhaps if any negative effects exist, they will
manifest in the future if ever. Most of the commercial
fishing industry seems not to have been affected
immediately. The only exceptions are commercial
shrimping and oystering. Furthermore, the issues
there are that of public opinion and marketing. The
challenge is to make it known that Louisiana shrimp
and oysters are safe to eat so that the demand
will return. I personally would not hesitate to eat
Louisiana seafood now or ever. I know that it is
undergoing more scrutiny that ever before. Even
prior to the spill, our coastal seafood was very closely
monitored and tested.
The exterior marsh grasses and maiden cane were
once covered with a thick layer of the brown/orange
oily sludge. It appeared to almost vanish from the
grass approximately 2 weeks after it first adhered
to it. Afterwards, it left minor sheen on the grass
which was gone after another week in most cases.
The interior marshes in southeast Louisiana are more
vibrant than they have been in a decade. This is
largely due to the flush and inundation of fresh water
into the barataria and breton estuaries via the Davis
pond and canarveron diversions. The waterfowl
habitat and wintering areas seem to be ideal. This
explosion of submerged vegetation will undoubtedly
lead to an increase in fish habitat as well. Maybe
those in power who determine the frequency and flow

rate of the diversions will take heed of the results and
adjust future action plans for years to come. It doesn’t
take a rocket scientist to realize that we are seeing the
intended effects of these diversions for the first time
in their existence because they were used to their full
capacity for the first time ever.
After Hurricane Katrina, the indomitable spirit of
the people of the New Orleans metropolitan area
and the Mississippi coast was unstoppable. The “we
will overcome” attitude saved many families, houses,
businesses, etc. But this oil spill had a different feel
to it. Anyone with the right tools and equipment
can rebuild a house. Anyone with enough time
and help can at least attempt to rebuild a business.
Any commercial fisherman could fix their vessels
after a hurricane and go out fishing to make the
money to rebuild their lives. The biggest difference
with this disaster is the unknown. Very few, if any,
homeowners in the suburbs or commercial fisherman
along the waters have the equipment or the training to
clean oil from the beaches, marsh grasses, and, more
poignant, from the water bottoms. We as a community
Changing Tides Part II: The Aftermath Begins
can only look at what’s on the surface. At this
point, mother nature has appeared to deliver another
miraculous recovery. Or perhaps, the effects of any
oil spill are largely dramatized by media for political
posturing and nature can basically take care of itself.
So many effects remain unknown with this disaster.
If the apparent or current effects are the only impacts,
the future looks bright. I guess we’ll have to wait
and see. Once again, I am in awe of the resiliency of
nature.

CLOSURES + GOOD WEATHER =
PLENTY OF FISH
By Sgt. Jason Russo
Y
ou don’t have to be a mathematician to figure
out the proper formula for an abundance of fish
in the Gulf of Mexico. When you combine the
opening of a five month long closure to fishing in
portions of federal waters with perfect weather only
found in south Louisiana during the month of October,
you get an overwhelming increase in fishermen and
fish. If anyone ever tells you that a lack of pressure
on the resource does not affect fish populations, they
haven’t been in the Gulf recently.
Any time the weather is good, I am just itching
to schedule some off-shore patrols. It was a Friday
and I headed my 24 foot Boston Whaler south. The
conditions couldn’t get any better. By the time I
reached the Gulf, the waters were as calm as an 80
year-old in church. My plan was to first check out
the oil rigs just over the three nautical mile line, then
move on to the deep water. There were boats fishing
at what seemed like every rig.
“Catchin’ any fish?”
The response was virtually the same with every
boat. “A limit of snapper, a few greys (snapper), and
some triggerfish.”
My partner and I moved on from boat to boat,
looking for that violation. The further east we traveled,
the more the fish started to change. The limits of red
snapper were replaced with limits of cobia. So it
wasn’t a big surprise when we made our first case of
the day. Four fishermen with thirteen cobia, which
have a limit of two per person. You do the math.
Now anyone who fishes off-shore can tell you that
red snapper are EASY to catch. You hook a dead pogie
on the line, drop it down, and hold on. Cobia generally
take a little bit more finesse. You normally have to
work the bait and FISH. This is probably the reason
why cobia are a highly prized catch among fishermen.
The following Friday, the conditions were perfect
again. I felt like I was in the movie “Groundhog
Day.” Again, a boat on every rig, and again, limits of
red snapper and cobia. This day was a little different
though. EVERYONE had cobia, even those not
trying to target the fish. Fishermen were dropping
dead bait over the side of the boat and hooking these
giants. And by the way, the fish did not care about
the financial status of the fishermen. Thirty-two foot
deep V off-shore boat: a limit of cobia. Twenty-four
foot fiberglass bay boat: a limit of cobia. Eighteen
foot aluminum flat boat: a limit of cobia. Two of the

people we checked exclaimed, “Everyone thinks
you need all this fancy equipment to catch these fish.
Look at what we got.”
They had two medium-action inshore saltwater
rods with some modest inshore spinning reels. Their
bait: lead jig heads with queen size artificial plastic
cocahoes (white with chartreus tails in case you’re
writing this down). They could have easily used the
same set-up to catch trout in the marsh. At that point
I was convinced that, on this day, you could catch a
cobia on a Zebco Spiderman pole with a hook and a
piece of hot dog. First time fishing in your entire life?
Doesn’t matter. The cobia are committing suicide!
Needless to say, we did make another case that day:
Five fishermen with a limit of red snapper, a limit of
cobia of course, and 9.5 pounds of fresh fish fillets
believed to be MORE red snapper. As the months go
on, more and more pressure will be put on the fish
and the weather will get progressively colder. The
perfect fishing scenario will probably come to a
screeching halt. Most likely, right around the time I
get a chance to go fishing myself. Such is the life of a
game warden.
