Eight Louisiana hunters facing penalties for deer hunting violations
LINCOLN, Neb.- Nebraska authorities say eight hunters from Louisiana have been cited for several deer hunting violations.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission said in a news release Wednesday that the eight were cited earlier this month for illegal activities in southeast Nebraska's Gage and Jefferson counties. The violations included hunting without permits, killing too many deer and borrowing deer hunting permits.
The commission says the carcasses of 12 illegally taken deer were seized and says penalties will exceed $13,000.
The hunter's names have not been released at this time.
