Big bow-shot buck: arrest, not high spot in Louisiana list
NEW ORLEANS - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says a man whose hunting license had been revoked is accused of illegally killing an impressive buck in Avoyelles Parish.
Enforcement Division spokesman Adam Einck says if legally killed, the deer would have been near the top of Louisiana's bow-hunting list. But he says it won't show up in the record books.
Einck says an agent called to a hunting club Saturday to measure the antlers wound up arresting 40-year-old Glen Toups Jr. of Abbeville and confiscating the deer.
Einck says Toups was cited with hunting without deer tags or hunting licenses. Einck says a charge of hunting after license revocation is pending because investigators didn't learn about that until after the arrest.
Toups declined comment Monday.
