A south Webster Parish hunter was arrested by Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries (LDWF) on multiple gun charges.

Travis Lynn Reynolds, 31, of the 200 block of Clarks Circle, Doyline, was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of drug paraphernalia and hunting deer by illegal methods.

LDWF Sgt. William Holoman and Cpl. Emily Sexton reportedly spotted Reynolds exiting a wooded area off Hwy. 163 in Doyline. He was dressed in camouflage and allegedly in possession of a .22 caliber rifle.

During a hunting license check, LDWF officers were notified by Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office that Reynolds was a convicted felon, making it illegal for him to possess a firearm.

He reportedly told officers he was hunting deer with the .22, which is an illegal method. He also said he was in possession of a methamphetamine pipe.

Reynolds was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
