Kaplan Hunting Guide Sentenced for Conducting Illegal Duck Hunts

January 31, 2012

By Ashley Guidroz, KATC.com

A Kaplan professional hunting guide has been sentenced in federal court.
Curmet Landry, the owner of Landry's Guide Service in Kaplan, has been charged with conducting an illegal commercial duck hunt. The charges against Landry stem from a three-year undercover sting operation conducted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services. He has been ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and serve five years probation, with a special condition that prevents him for hunting during his probation time. Landry pled guilty in August 2011 for knowingly conducting an illegal duck hunt.
Landry admitted in open court that during the 2006 special teal season, he assisted his guide service clients in illegal duck hunts. During that hunt, the Landry directed undercover federal agents, who were posing as his clients, to kill more than the daily limit of teal. He further directed the agents to kill five wood ducks, which were abandoned in the field because the season for wood ducks was closed at the time.
