8 Louisiana hunters face penalties for Nebraska deer hunting violations

LINCOLN (AP) — Nebraska authorities say eight hunters from Louisiana have been cited for several deer hunting violations.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission said Wednesday that the eight were cited 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 said the carcasses of 12 illegally taken deer were seized and that penalties will exceed $13,000.
