BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — State wildlife agents have cited a Coushatta man for alleged deer hunting violations in Red River Parish.

The department, in a news release Tuesday, said 31-year-old Russell L. Long Jr. was cited for hunting deer during illegal hours with artificial light, hunting from a moving vehicle, hunting without basic licenses, failing to comply with deer tagging requirements and discharging a firearm from a public road.

Authorities say a sheriff's deputy saw a vehicle using a spotlight around 2:36 a.m. Jan. 7 and tried to pull it over. After a brief pursuit, the deputy stopped Long and agents later found a 7-mm rifle and recovered a doe. Long admitted shooting the animal during questioning.

If convicted, sentences range from 15 to 120 days in jail and fines from $50 to $950.
