Two Montgomery, Louisiana men are facing multiple charges after allegedly shooting a nine-point buck last week, which they then left in a field.
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents arrested 19-year-old Skyler Welch and 18-year-old Dillion County.
Agents said in a news release both men were booked with hunting deer during a closed season, hunting during illegal hours with artificial light and hunting without licenses or tags.
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.
