The Cheating Doesn’t Stop with Fishing

According to a press release by  the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, six guys were busted for allegedly cheating in hog hunting contests in Caldwell and Bienville parishes. Trace Davis, Hunter Webb, Colby Bushnell, Davy Haymon, Nathan Granger, and Don Pollard Jr. were arrested for fraud and conspiracy. Some of them were also charged with violating interstate commerce, and a few had additional charges like obstruction of justice and hunting under a license suspension.

The group was caught sneaking wild hogs from Texas to compete in Louisiana contests, which they ended up winning. The contests required hogs to be caught locally and during the event dates.

All six turned themselves in earlier this month. Penalties for these charges can be hefty, with fines up to $10,000 and jail time up to five years, depending on the violation.

The morale of the story is to just not cheat….ever. Karma is a thing, and if you don’t get caught the first time, it will come back around.
