Turkey Hunting Regulation Pamphlets Available
The 2005 Louisiana Turkey Hunting Regulations pamphlet and the 2005 Louisiana Recreational Fishing booklet are now available from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and license vendors. The 2005 Louisiana Commercial Fishing booklet has also been prepared and is being mailed to current commercial fishing license holders.
These regulations publications may be obtained by contacting local LDWF offices or the LDWF Headquarters Building. License vendors are also distributing the pamphlets and booklets. The regulations may also be downloaded from the LDWF website at www.wlf.louisiana.gov, under the "Departmental Publications" heading.
The 2005 turkey-hunting season in Louisiana opens on March 25. The fishing regulations apply to the 2005 calendar year. Hunters and anglers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the updated regulations before taking to the fields or waters. Failure to do so could result in a costly citation. Anyone with questions regarding any of these regulations should contact their local LDWF office or the LDWF main office at (225)765-2800.
