BATON ROUGE: Four men pleaded guilty to migratory game bird violations and were sentenced in the Eastern District Court in New Orleans on March 3.

Ty Scott, 44, of Belle Chasse, Alan Yedor II, 50, of Port Sulphur, Alfred McDonald II, 42, of Bay Minette, Ala., and Kevin Simmons, 40, of Grand Bay, Ala., were each sentenced to pay a $2,752 fine for violations of the migratory game bird treaty act.

Scott, McDonald, and Simmons were also placed on three years of probation with Yedor receiving four years.  All probation periods contained provisions of no hunting, no migratory bird hunting, and no entering a National Wildlife Refuge anywhere in the United States.

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service special agents cited the four men for migratory game birds violations during the 2016-17 hunting season.

Agents found that the men harvested over 90 ducks and were in excess of the daily limit after hunting in the Venice area.  The men also concealed their actions by creating harvest tags with false information in order to deceive law enforcement officers.
