Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission voted to accept a declaration of emergency to adjust the Area 6 deer hunting season dates. The new dates reflect the original recommendations of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries staff. Because the action was taken as a declaration of emergency, the new dates will go into effect this hunting season.

The dates approved by the commission are as follows: Modern Firearms Still Hunt, November 20 through December 5; and Muzzleloader, December 6 through December 10.

Deer hunting Area 6 is located in central Louisiana. It consists of Ascension, Assumption, Iberville, Jefferson, Lafourche, Plaquemines, Pointe Coupee, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. John, St. Martin and West Baton Rouge parishes. It also includes portions of Avoyelles, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, Livingston, Rapides, St. Landry, St. Mary, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne and West Feliciana parishes.
