Gregory W. Taylor, 40, of Winnsboro, entered a guilty plea to taking over the
daily limit of doves before U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen Hayes in Monroe on Feb.
Taylor was ordered to pay a fine of $200 and pay $50 for each of the 30 doves in
excess of the daily limit. He was also ordered to pay $10 to the criminal
victims fund, for a total of $1,710 in fines.
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents cited
Taylor for taking over the daily limit of doves on Sept. 1, 2007. Agents cited
Taylor after contacting him while he was hunting, and found him to be in
possession of 42 mourning doves. The daily limit is 12.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristina Walker prosecuted the case.
Agents participating in the case were Sgt. Scott Watson, Sgt. Joe Chandler Jr.
and Agent Leya Grover.
