Louisiana Commission Makes Drastic Changes to Hunting Season

Hunters will see many changes beginning this fall after action taken by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission Thursday. The alterations include season dates and regulations throughout the state as well as on specific wildlife management areas.

The commission had put the changes out for public comment beginning in January, and that feedback from hunters was presented to the commission before Thursday’s vote.
