Facebook post leads to Norco duck hunting citation
Brandon Lowry, 19, of Norco, was cited for taking over the daily limit and two-day possession limit of teal. Agents were informed of a photo taken during open teal season on Lowry’s Facebook profile showcasing 64 blue-winged teal ducks and 12 hunters.
Teal season ran from Sept. 10-25.
Agents then conducted an extensive investigation interviewing all 12 hunters and uncovering additional Facebook postings, which led them to believe that Lowry had shot over his daily and possession limits.
After further questioning, Lowry admitted to investigators that he shot over the daily limit one day and shot his daily limit two other separate days. The daily bag limit for teal during the special teal season is four teal per person per day with a two-day possession limit of eight.
The state penalties for migratory bird violations for having over the daily and possession limits are fines between $400 and $950, or up to 120 days in jail, or both plus court costs and forfeiture of anything seized for each offense.
LDWF Agent Jared Taylor was the lead investigative agent.
