Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement division agents have cited a 49-year old Sunset man for allegedly killing an alligator during a closed season.
The department said in a news release, agents cited Kenneth Acreneaux for taking or possessing an alligator during a closed season and intentional concealment of illegally taken wildlife.
The agency says agents responded to an anonymous complaint against Arceneaux. Agents showed up at Arceneaux's home on June 10 and learned that Arceneaux had harvested a six foot alligator in Cameron Parish earlier that morning. The alligator season for Cameron Parish doesn't open until the first Wednesday in September.
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
