The 2003-04 Hunting Seasons and Wildlife Management Area Regulations pamphlet is now available at local hunting license vendors and the offices of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. An electronic version of the pamphlet may also be viewed and/or downloaded from the department website at:
The pamphlet contains a complete listing of hunting season dates for deer, small game and migratory game birds. The hunting rules and regulations are also included. The season dates and regulations were officially ratified by the Louisiana Wildlife Commission at their July 8 meeting.

Recent actions by the commission, however, are not included. The newly created Tangipahoa Parish School Board Wildlife Management Area is not listed in the pamphlet. The deer season for the area will be the same as outside, with the stipulation that this is a still-hunt-only area. The small game hunting regulations and seasons will be the same as outside except that beagles will be permitted for rabbit hunting from January 26 through February 29. Squirrel dogs will be permitted from January 26 through February 8. Nighttime raccoon hunting will be allowed from January 26 through February 29. This area will be closed to ATVs, with access allowed only by walking in.

The Louisiana Bobcat season was also approved after the printing of the pamphlet. The LWFC set the season to run concurrent with the deer season, opening on September 13 in conjunction with the opening of Louisiana's archery season. Properly licensed big game hunters may take a bobcat during the open deer hunting season. The season limit on bobcats taken by recreational deer hunters shall be one. Legal shooting hours and methods of take shall be the same as those for deer in each area of the state.

Hunters are strongly urged to obtain a copy of the pamphlet and review it before heading into the woods this season. Ignoring changes to season dates, rules or regulations could result in citations that carry stiff fines and penalties.
