    swamp dude Troy Landry ticketed by AGFC

    Troy and his son were cited recently for driving though Arkansas with deer parts that were killed in Nebraska.
    Neither man was hunting in Arkansas and they were just passing through to home in Lousianna.

    All four deer heads were confiscated and some of the meat was confiscated.
    Max $1000 fine and 30 days in jail just for passing through with deer bones from a CWD state.

    Old Troy is not happy.

    I read that in the paper this morning. Guess he will have to kill a couple extra gators, to make up the cost!

    November 16th.
    They were pulled over and searched and cited.
    One of the bucks was a 153" buck that was the biggest deer his son had ever taken.
    They were 20 minutes from the LA state line when they were pulled over.

    By deer parts, does that mean they had illegal parts, no license? or they had heads that were not skinned out.

    Heads that had not been cleaned or boiled and deer bones. Everything has to be de-boned.

    I understand why the AGFC has the rule but I see Troy's point too. How is a man supposed to know this rule if he does not live in Arkansas?

    It is a silly rule. As long as he doesn't throw the bones out in Arkansas he should have been allowed to travel through and take his deer.

    I dont understand why or how he was stopped. I do know about the CWD law but its a crock of crap and here is why.
    Just seems fishy to me.
    You know they cant come into the state, but in Baxter County a land fill serves both Arkansas and south Central Missouri,and Missouri law for locker plants is that deer waste must go to a lined land fill. Ok thats fine.

    But guess what??????? Those Missouri waste deer parts come to ARKANSAS!

    last summer I had to go work in Wisconsin. I researched every state I was going to have to travel through to make sure my ccl was legal. Made me realise how liberal Illinois is. Now that we have the net there is really no excuse for not knowing a law like that. On another note the outfitter needs to tell the hunter about it also. You know the outfitter knew the law.

    I understand researching the ccl rules, but on something as obscure as this how could he have even known there was something to research?

    So, if I kill a monster buck in another state and want to have it mounted, I'll have to do it in that state instead of using my taxidermist? Is this to keep disease out of the state?

    You could cape it and clean the skull plate. No bone other than horns, cleaned skulls/skull plates with no tissue on them.

    You can bring the cleaned antlers, the DEBONED meat and cape back. I'm glad the AGFC have rules like this in place. If cwd is exposed to our deer herd it will create tons of problems. Our deer herd is a huge asset to the state of Arkansas and if we become a CWD state some people will be scared to eat the meat and so forth. They will stop hunting and in turn that will effect our economy. Think about how much $$$$ is generated just from deer hunting in Ar. Believe it or not the AGFC is trying to help all of us. They are not their just to write you a ticket.

    I'd say pretty fair odds

    If passing through at 60 MPH with some deer bones in an ice chest will spread the disease, the deer don't stand a chance. If CWD was that contagious, every deer in America would be dead in a week.

    That law is a joke.

    agree 100%. I wonder if this was another one of Emon Mahony's hair brained ideas?

    It's ironic that this "terrible" disease is in states that have some of the largest bucks in the US. It's also the states and Canadian provinces that most people dream of going for that buck of a lifetime, ie Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, Saskatchewan, etc.

    This almost looks like a setup. I've been driving Arkansas roads for 40+ years and have never been stopped and checked for deer bones in my vehicle. This guy is 20 miles from the state line and gets pulled over??

    He was not hunting with an outfitter.

    Exactly!!!! And here is the deal, he was only passing thru, driving down the highway heading home, he was NOT BRINGING IT BACK TO ARKANSAS!!!!! If he had made it that 20 more miles to Louisiana he would have been 100% legal, LFW does NOT have a reg like this on the books. In his own mind I am sure he thought he was 100% legal, and was totally following the laws that he thought pertained to him. I would even bet he was told by the folks where he killed the deer it was OK cause he was going back to Louisiana where there is NO reg.

    This deal is kinda like the licence plate deal on cars, everyone in the US has to have one, some states say only 1 on the back is fine, other states say you have to have 1 front & back, but it does not matter what your states law says, if you are just traveling thru they don't mess with you just for that! IMO this deal rates up there with if some of these other state requiring 2 plates on your car stopping & giving a ticket to every Arkansas car on there highway passing thru that only has 1 cause "Their" law says you have to have 2!!!! But that is not the way it happens, everyone gets a free pass as long as they meet the requirements of the home state in which they reside, the same should apply here also!

    They got pulled over because they were in the swamp people truck.

    I was hunting the same place they were. I was in Nebraska with my dad, uncle and a friend November 1-9. Jacob arrived during that week. He told my uncle they would be staying a couple weeks. It is not an outfitter. The only way he would have known the Arkansas law was by putting in the time to look for it, which is not likely. I do not make it a habit to look up the MO or IA laws and we have been going to Nebraska 8 years. I have looked up the MO laws once but I know they change from time to time just as ours. I hope we are not breaking another states laws when we are just passing through. I do know the Arkansas law. Yes you can bring your buck back to be mounted. Caping out a deer is a simple procedure and I suggest if you go hunt out of state you learn basic caping skills or be prepared to take it to a local taxidermist and have them cape it. All meat must be deboned. Skull plates must be cleaned. It is not hard to do this stuff. I am sure the Landry's did not know the Arkansas law so I doubt it was not done intentionally on there part. I do know at least 60% of the hunters where we hunt are form Louisiana so I'm sure the AG&F WO watch for Louisiana plates with horns somewhere on the vehicle. Jacob was driving a Big red truck with swamp people on the side so they stuck out like a sore thumb! I would be pi*#ed if I were them too. I think there is just to many laws nowadays. I don't think anyone alive can say they do not break some kind of law.

    P.S. No I will not give out the location we are hunting In Nebraska. IF it come out on one of their hunting shows so be it, TV ruins everything nowadays.

    Pretty sure it was in Monticello or Hamburg. A bunch of my buddies know the GW that arrested him. Im not going to lie, I wanted to call BS on it when one of them told me about it right after it happened, but I guess I was wrong.
