State Wildlife and Fisheries agents cited a Lincoln Parish man April 10 for multiple turkey hunting violations that reportedly occurred April 3 in Union Parish.

James S. Mabry, 32, of Dubach, was cited after agents received a complaint that he reportedly shot two turkeys in a pasture along Louisiana Highway 2 between Bernice and the Shiloh community.

Agents, armed with a search warrant, reportedly found suspected turkey feathers in the back of his truck and in his yard. Mabry told agents he drove along Louisiana 2 and saw the turkeys in a pasture, stopped his truck, walked to the fence and shot both gobblers.

He has been cited with one count each of hunting from a public road, hunting from a moving vehicle, taking over the daily limit of turkeys and hunting without the required wild turkey hunting license.

The penalty for the charges of hunting from a moving vehicle and taking over the limit of turkeys is a fine of $250 to $500, up to 90 days in jail or both. The penalty for hunting from a public road is a fine of $100 to $350, up to 60 days in jail or both. The penalty for hunting without a turkey license is a fine of $50, up to 15 days in jail or both. Court costs and restitution in the amount of $802.50 for each turkey also is required.
