June 23, 2016 – The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has released its 2016-17 hunting regulations pamphlet online at the LDWF website. Click here to view the upcoming season’s regulations.
The pamphlet contains hunting rules, regulations and season dates for the 2016-17 season, including hunting information on LDWF’s Wildlife Management Areas and Louisiana’s federal lands.
Printed copies of the pamphlets will be available in early August at LDWF offices throughout the state and at vendors where hunting and fishing licenses are sold.
New to this year’s hunting regulations pamphlet are migratory bird zones, seasons and regulations. Formerly, migratory bird regulations were published in a separate brochure. From this year forward, they will be included as part of the annual regulations pamphlet.
This season’s regulation pamphlet also has season schedules for the state’s 10 deer hunting areas and major changes for the 2016-17 season.
