BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Eleven people have been cited for turkey hunting violations during the opening weekend of the 2015 turkey season.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division says agents cited some hunters for hunting turkeys over a baited area and others for hunting without a turkey stamp and failing to comply with turkey tagging regulations.

Hunters are not allowed to place, deposit or scatter corn, wheat or other grain, salt or other feed to lure turkeys to a hunting area. They’re also required to possess a basic hunting and big game license, Louisiana wild turkey permit and turkey tags.

The hunters face fines ranging up to $500 and up to 90 days in jail.
