What? It’s too hot to even fish, so what’s the hot topic this week? It’s this:
The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission received the proposed duck hunting dates for the 2014-2015 season from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) at their monthly meeting.
The dates presented reflect another 60-day season for Louisiana hunters across the coastal, east and west zones.
Coastal Zone: Nov. 8 – 30; and Dec. 13-Jan.18; Youth Hunt Nov. 1 – 2.
*East Zone: Nov. 22 – Dec 7; and Dec. 13 – Jan. 25; Youth Hunt Nov. 15 and Jan. 31.
West Zone: Nov. 15 – Dec. 14, and Dec. 20 – Jan. 18; Youth Hunt Nov. 8 and Jan. 24.
These proposed dates reflect preferences noted in past waterfowl hunter surveys conducted by the Department via mail-out and on-line survey forms. Final approval of season dates will be made at the August Commission meeting.
The 2014-15 duck season framework provides for a daily bag limit of six (6) and a possession limit of eighteen (18). Federal and state waterfowl stamps are required to hunt waterfowl.
* The East Zone makes up most of the region around northeast Louisiana.
