BATON ROUGE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) LDWF hunting investigation leads to arrest of Sulphur man.

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents arrested a Sulphur man on Jan. 29 for alleged deer hunting violations in Sulphur.

LDWF said agents arrested, Chris G. Clark, 51, for hunting from a moving vehicle, hunting deer from a public road, hunting or taking deer during a closed season, discharging a firearm from public road and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of minors. Clark was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center.

Agents also cited two minors for hunting from a moving vehicle, hunting deer from a public road, hunting or taking deer during a closed season and discharging a firearm from a public road.

LDWF said agents received a complaint from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office about a deer that was shot off of Ellis Moss Road in Sulphur. Agents went to the scene and learned from an eye witness who was able to get the license plate number and a detailed description of the vehicle that was used in the illegal shooting of a deer.

The license plate information led agents to a residence in Sulphur.Upon further investigation, agents learned that Clark drove the vehicle along with three minors to the location where deer were in a field off the road. Clark equipped one of the minors with a .243 rifle and one with a 30-06 rifle.

After further investigation, agents learned that Clark and the three minors pulled up to the field where Clark then instructed two of the minors to open the door and fire simultaneously at a deer. After both minors fired multiple shots killing the deer, they observed a vehicle approaching them from behind. Clark and the three minors then left the scene and did not return.

Agents seized the .243 and 30-06 rifles and a 12 gauge shotgun.
