Small Game Program

The Small Game Program involves management, research and population monitoring activities for bobwhite quail, mourning dove, woodcock, ring-necked pheasants, snipe, rabbits, and squirrels. Personnel also develop and participate in the wild turkey research conducted by the Department. In addition, the biologists administer the falconry and hunting preserve programs. Fred Kimmel, Upland Game Study Leader, coordinates the Upland Game Program.

In order to meet public demands for small game, the Small Game Program offers technical assistance to improve habitat on public and private lands. Program biologists also conduct research to assess and improve management. Several population monitoring surveys are conducted by regional and program biologists to develop population indices and track population trends of upland game species.  Personnel also represent the Department on various committees which are involved in monitoring and formulating regional and national programs which may have impacts on upland game wildlife.


Population Status
Data from the North American Breeding Bird Survey show bobwhite quail populations in Louisiana have declined by about 75% since 1966. The Department's fall surveys also illustrate a general downward trend. This is due primarily to habitat degradation. Clean farming techniques in the agricultural regions of the state have all but eliminated quail from these areas. Intensive pine management that features short-rotation densely stocked monoculture pine stands and infrequent prescribed burning has reduced quail populations in the forested upland regions of Louisiana. In addition, a number of unusually dry summers in recent years has resulted in poor reproduction and exacerbated the effects of habitat degradation. However, much of the habitat loss occurred during the 1970s and 1980s. As a consequence, in recent years the population indices have been more stable and influenced primarily by summer weather conditions.

Quail and Grassland Bird Task Force
In an effort to address long-term population declines in bobwhite quail and other birds dependent on grassland habitat, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has formed the Louisiana Quail and Grassland Bird Task Force.  This task force is composed of representatives from nearly 20 agencies or organizations

In his remarks to the group, Secretary Dwight Landreneau noted that partnerships and interagency cooperation are crucial to effectively address the myriad of issues facing bobwhites and grassland birds.  Factors such as clean farming, short-rotation intensive pine management, lack of prescribed burning, and use of sod-forming pasture grasses have negatively impacted quail and grassland bird habitat.

Since 1967, Louisiana's bobwhite quail populations have declined by approximately 75%.  Louisiana is not the only state where bobwhites have declined precipitously.  Bobwhite populations across the southeastern U.S. have declined by about 60%.  This downward trend is not limited to bobwhite quail.  Other species that require similar habitat such as eastern meadowlark and loggerhead shrike have also exhibited significant population declines.

In response to this situation, a plan known as the Northern Bobwhite Conservation Initiative was developed under the auspices of the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies in 2002.  This plan established habitat restoration goals across the range of bobwhite quail.  This national plan has been instrumental in focusing attention on the plight of bobwhite quail and has served as catalyst for development of state initiatives such as Louisiana's.

One of the first jobs of the Louisiana Quail and Grassland Bird Task Force will be to develop a state plan to define goals and identify strategies for quail and grassland bird habitat restoration in Louisiana.  The state plan will serve as a blueprint for efforts to reverse declining bobwhite quail and grassland bird population trends in Louisiana. 

There are a variety of programs available through federal and state agencies that provide technical and financial assistance to landowners willing to implement practices beneficial to quail and grassland birds.  In addition to developing a state plan, the Louisiana Quail and Grassland Bird Task Force will be involved in efforts to inform landowners and promote participation in these conservation programs.

Reversing the downward trend in quail and grassland bird populations will not happen overnight.  This is a long-term venture that will require the commitment and cooperation of numerous organizations, agencies, and most importantly, individual landowners.  The Louisiana Quail and Grassland Bird Task Force represents a new approach in Louisiana to addressing the plight of bobwhite quail and grassland birds.  Agencies and organizations will be working together in a coordinated effort to restore the ecosystems and habitat that are home to bobwhite quail and many other species

A statewide quail population survey is conducted each fall. This survey is used to develop an index to the quail population for various habitat regions throughout Louisiana. Approximately fifty 19-mile routes are run throughout the state in late October and early November. The routes are randomly located in 5 major habitat types.

An evaluation of habitat management for quail is being conducted on the Jackson-Bienville WMA. LSU researchers with support of LDWF are investigating the relationships between various forest management tools/strategies and quail abundance.

To help determine bobwhite quail survival rates, harvest rates, nesting success, habitat use and movements, 178 bobwhites were radio-tagged and 245 were banded over several years on the Sandy Hollow Wildlife Management Area. Findings include:

  • Only 6.4% of bobwhites survive over 1 year. Most of the mortality was due to predators, both avian and mammalian.
  • Overall, less than 1 in 12 birds were taken by hunters and hunters harvested birds from less than 1/3 of the coveys. However, when a covey was found, about 1 in 5 birds were bagged. Both harvest rates (with crippling loss also considered) are within the recommended 30% value for the South.
  • Quail move considerable distances in the fall and spring. One covey moved over 3 miles and movements of 1 mile were common.

As a response to interest in releasing pen-reared bobwhites for population enhancement by some users of the Sandy Hollow WMA and quail hunters in general, 33 pen-reared female bobwhites were radio-tagged and released in groups on the area in good habitat and provided supplemental food and water. Within 3 days, 52% of the birds were dead and by the 12th day, 84% had died. Within 2 weeks, 97% of the birds were dead. Most of the mortality was due to predation. This study affirms the general principal that most pen-reared quail fare poorly when released into the wild. The potential problems caused by pen-reared introductions, such as disease introduction, outweigh the marginal benefits.

From 1984-2000, almost 8,500 wings were collected from hunters to determine production indices for quail and peak hatch periods.  Average chicks per adult hen was relatively high (greater than 6), but it varied greatly between years due to weather. Quail wings highlight the importance of July and August to quail production in Louisiana. 

National Farm Policy often shape quail and other farm wildlife habitat.  Many Farm Bill issues are currently being considered in Washington. The Wildlife Society maintains a website with up-to-date Farm Bill issues.

Population Status
Specific population surveys are not conducted for these species; however, the Department's annual hunter harvest survey provides indices to population trend. Seasonal rabbit harvest per hunter has remained stable from 1986-97 while seasonal squirrel harvest per hunter has declined slightly during the same period. It is likely that increased conversion of hardwood forests and stream bottoms to pine forests and poor mast crops have contributed to lower squirrel hunter success. In the absence of major habitat modifications, year to year fluctuations in rabbit and squirrel populations are due primarily to summer rainfall amounts in the case of rabbits and prior year's mast crop in the case of squirrels.

Louisiana has 2 species of rabbits: eastern cottontails and swamp rabbits.  Although the cottontail is considered more of an upland species and the swamp rabbit a wetland (wooded) species, both species occur within our coastal areas.

Rabbits can high productive rates in Louisiana when habitat and weather conditions are good.  Adult cottontails may have as many as 6 litters per year and young of the year may contribute another 25% to the production.

Upland game biologists monitored rabbit population response to rotational burning regimes on an old field alluvial site on Sherburne WMA for 6 years.  Rabbit use suggested that 2 or 3 year burning cycles were optimal for rabbits.

Louisiana has 2 species of squirrels: gray squirrels and fox squirrels.  However, there are 2 recognized subspecies of gray squirrels and 3 subspecies of the fox squirrel.  In addition, melanistic (black) color phases in each species.

In good production years, adult squirrels will have 2 litters--one in the spring and one in the late summer.

Population Status
Several attempts have been made by the Department to establish ring-necked pheasant populations in southwest Louisiana. In the 1960s, pen-reared pheasant releases were unsuccessful. In the late 1970s, wild-trapped pheasants from Texas were released. These also did not result in viable populations. In the early 1980s, wild-trapped pheasants from California were released and thrived, at least for a while. The population has expanded sufficiently to allow a hunting season in a portion of southwest Louisiana. But, because of the limited area and lack of access, hunter participation was very light.

Pheasant season was closed following several consecutive low population counts.  Many newly released species experience rapid expansion followed by declines.  It is not currently known if this is the phenomena observed on our pheasants or simply the result of several bad nesting seasons due to weather extremes--drought and flooding.

Population Monitoring
Region Wildlife Division and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologists monitor Louisiana's breeding mourning dove population along 19 randomly selected routes throughout the state in late May by counting cooing doves. The survey is used as an index to dove populations in Louisiana and, together with other states' surveys, for the nation.

Population trend of resident breeding mourning doves in Louisiana has been stable since 1966. Year to year variations may occur due to weather and other environmental influences. However, since doves are migratory, the number of doves found in Louisiana, particularly late in the hunting season, is influenced by population trends in other production states. Dove populations have been stable during the last 10 years in the eastern U.S.

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries along with 25 other states' fish and wildlife agencies began a 3-year banding study this past summer (2003).  Its objectives are to determine harvest rates, estimate annual survival, provide information on the geographical distribution of the harvest and develop and refine techniques for a future operational dove banding program.  We banded almost 1,300 doves in Louisiana this year and it's expected that over 85,000 doves will be banded by all states during the course of the study.  Hunters are a critical link to the mourning dove study.  By reporting your banded doves, you help us manage this important migratory bird.  If you harvest a banded mourning dove, please call 1-800-327-BAND (2263) to report it.

Region and Program personnel work together to enhance dove hunting opportunities on WMAs by manipulating native vegetation or Dove Field Management. They also coordinate leasing of private land by LDWF for public dove hunts.

Upland Game and Region biologists provide technical assistance to numerous landowners on the most effective and legal means to prepare dove fields for hunting. They also prepare and distribute educational materials to inform land managers about dove field preparation and management. Program personnel assisted LSU Cooperative Extension Service in developing a planting guideline for wildlife food plots.

Other Dove Notes:
There are currently at least 5 other different species of dove breeding in Louisiana:  Ground, Inca, white-winged, rock (common pigeons), and Eurasian collared-doves.  The latter is an exotic that is rapidly spreading across the south.  At this time, the impact of the Eurasian collared-doves on mourning doves is unknown.  It is larger and more aggressive than the native mourning dove.

Population Status
Woodcock populations have been decreasing across North America. It is difficult to quantify the rate of decline because woodcock do not lend themselves to traditional survey techniques. However, the only index of breeding woodcock populations, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Singing Ground Survey, indicates about 1.5% and 2.5% declines per year in the central and eastern U.S., respectively, since 1968. The declining woodcock population is thought to be due primarily to loss of early successional habitat (primarily aspen) in the northern breeding ground states. However, because Louisiana is at the end of the flyway, this population decline is not always evident. Louisiana's wintering woodcock population is influenced primarily by weather. Louisiana will usually have high numbers of wintering woodcock during cold, wet winters.

Upland Game biologists have been involved in a woodcock banding project on Sherburne WMA/ Atchafalaya NWR since 1990. This project is designed to determine woodcock harvest rates from a heavily hunted area. Since most woodcock habitat is hunted lightly or not hunted at all, this would represent a "worst case" and not a typical situation. To date, over 2,000 woodcock have been banded.  Raw woodcock harvest rates on this complex range from less than 1% to slightly more than 10%.

Woodcock hunting and band recovery data are collected from woodcock hunters on Sherburne WMA and Atchafalaya NWR via mandatory self-clearing check stations. These data are used to monitor woodcock harvest, hunter success, and hunt characteristics.

Banding at Sherburne WMA/Atchafalaya NWR has illustrated that  woodcock are longer lived relative to quail and that the birds hold a good degree of fidelity to their wintering grounds. Each year, 5-15 birds captured from prior banding seasons are recaptured. Most birds at recapture are 1-2 years old. However, several birds over 4 years old have been recaptured. About 60% of the birds banding in 1 year and recaptured in another were caught in the same field as originally banded.  One bird was caught 3 times in 3 different years, but in the same field.

Although woodcock are technically shorebirds, young forests and scrub/thickets that are moist compose their daytime habitat. It is at dusk, when woodcock frequently fly to open fields and clearcuts, and during the night when they feed in these areas that they illustrate habits more typically associated with other shorebirds.  The Cajun Becasse Chapter of the Ruffed Grouse Society has funded some of the management activities on the Sherburne WMA/Atchafalaya NWR that are beneficial to woodcock as well as a host of other wildlife species. Woodcock in the Southeast: Natural History & Management for Landowners is an excellent reference publication.

Program personnel participate in the annual woodcock wing-bee. This is a gathering of biologists that age and sex approximately 10,000 woodcock wings submitted by hunters each year from throughout the U.S. Indices to production, hunter success, and harvest characteristics are determined. This information is used to monitor trends in woodcock population and harvest on a statewide, regional, and national level. The Department hosts
the wingbee about every 5 years.

Physically Challenged Hunter Program

LDWF's Deer Program is responsible for statewide coordination of the Physically Challenged Hunter Program.

The Physically Challenged Hunter Program provides hunting opportunities for individuals who are disabled. Individuals who are wheelchair confined, mobility impaired, or amputees of the upper extremities may apply. Permits issued to qualified persons allow them to participate in special deer hunts on private and public land, provide access to handicapped ATV trails on wildlife management areas.


Home Study Format

Students pursing Hunter Education Certification via the home study format must first complete the approved online course. The online course is an interactive course that consists of reading material with a narration option, graphics, animations and videos. Each section concludes with a quiz that must be passed before moving onto the next section. After completing all sections there is a final test. Upon passing the final test, the student can print a “voucher” or certificate that acknowledges successful completion of the online course portion of the home study format. 

Upon successful completion of the online course and printing of the voucher, students must attend a 5-hour field day course. Field day courses are usually taught on weekends or weekday evenings. Field day courses cover a review of the online material, hands-on exercises, live-fire exercise and a final written test.  Students in the home study format must complete both the online course and field-day course to receive Hunter Education Certification.

There is no charge for the field day course. However effective July 1, 2017, the fee will increase from $15 to $17.95 per student charge to take the online course portion of the home study format. Students should access the online course through this website to ensure they are taking the approved online course.

Why hunter education?  

The Louisiana Hunter Education Course is much more than hunter safety. It is a course with something for everyone interested in firearms, hunting and conservation.

The goals of the program are to prevent hunting accidents and ensure the future of hunting by teaching hunters about their responsibilities and role in conservation. Much of the course covers firearm safety, but responsibility, ethics, wildlife conservation, and outdoor safety are also covered.

The Hunter Education Program was developed by LDWF and has helped make hunting a safe activity. In fact, hunting is one of the safest outdoor recreational activities in terms of injuries per 100,000 participants. Hunter education training is available to everyone, regardless of race, sex, age or national origin.

Who needs hunter education?

Every hunter is encouraged to take hunter education. However, Louisiana law requires all hunters born on or after September 1, 1969 receive Hunter Education Certification from an LDWF-approved course prior to hunting in Louisiana, unless they are under direct supervision of a qualified person.

For supervision purposes, a qualified person is a Louisiana licensed hunter born before September 1, 1969, or a person 18 years of age or older who has proof of Hunter Education Certification from an approved course. Direct supervision means the supervising person is in direct line of sight and within normal voice contact of the hunter they are supervising. 

The minimum age for Hunter Education Certification in Louisiana is 10 years old. However, it is required 10 and 11 year-olds be supervised while hunting, even if they have received Hunter Education Certification. Youth younger than 10 years old may take the course, but they are not eligible to be certified and will have to retake the course to obtain certification when they reach 10 years of age or older.

Active or veteran members of the United States armed forces or any current POST-certified law enforcement officer may apply for a Louisiana hunter education exemption.  If granted, the applicant will be provided with a hunter education exemption card that is valid in Louisiana only. Applications for exemptions may be filed at the LDWF Education Program office in Baton Rouge (225-765-2932) or most field offices. Click here to download a Military/Police Exemption application form.

States have differing hunter education requirements, so hunters planning trips to other states should check the hunter education requirements of their destination state well in advance of their trip. For instance, hunters traveling to Colorado must have hunter education certification if they were born on or after January 1, 1949. The Louisiana Hunter Education Certification is honored in all states and Canadian provinces.

About the Course

The Louisiana Hunter Education Certification course is offered in 2 formats. The first format is a 10-hour classroom format that is usually held over 2-3 days. The second format, recommended only for students 14 years of age and older, is a home study format that consists of two parts: an online class that can be taken at the student’s own pace, followed by a 5-hour field-day class. Both formats cover firearm and hunting safety, wildlife management principles, ethics, game identification and outdoor survival. Students must successfully complete a live-fire exercise with both formats. Firearms and ammunition are provided for the live-fire exercise so students should not bring their own.

Upon successful completion of either format, students will receive their permanent, certification via email (at the address they provided during registration).  Students can also print their cards by accessing their LDWF account and clicking “View Your Certifications.”

Who can participate?

The minimum age for Hunter Education Certification in Louisiana is 10 years old. However, it is required 10 and 11 year-olds be supervised while hunting, even if they have received Hunter Education Certification. Youth younger than 10 years old may take the course, but they are not eligible to be certified and will have to retake the course to obtain certification when they reach 10 years of age or older.

How much does the course cost?

There is no charge for the classroom format or to attend the field day portion of the home study format. The online portion of the home study format costs $17.95 and is payable upon completion of the course.

Who teaches hunter education courses?

Courses are taught by LDWF Education Program staff and volunteer instructors. The majority of courses are taught by volunteers who donate their time to teach hunter education. Volunteers undergo background checks and receive training and oversight from LDWF staff.

Do I need bowhunter education?

Bowhunter education courses are offered through LDWF. Although not mandatory in Louisiana, this course does provide a bowhunter with training that will make a safer and more competent bowhunter. Some states do require bowhunter education before bowhunting in that state. Check the regulations of other states before you hunt.

Taking Resident Game

Methods of taking Quadrupeds and Resident Game Birds

Taking quadrupeds and resident game birds from aircraft or participating in the taking of deer with the aid of aircraft or from automobiles or other moving land vehicles is prohibited.

No person shall take or kill any game bird or wild quadruped with a firearm fitted with any device to deaden or silence the sound of the discharge thereof; or fitted with an infrared sight, electrically operated sight or device specifically designed to enhance vision at night {R.S. 56:116.1B(3)}.

It is illegal to intentionally feed, deposit, place, distribute, expose, scatter, or cause to be fed, deposited, placed, distributed, exposed, or scattered, raw sweet potatoes to wild game quadrupeds.

Use of a longbow (including compound bow and crossbow) and arrow or a shotgun not larger than a 10 gauge fired from the shoulder without a rest shall be legal for taking all resident game birds and quadrupeds. Also, the use of a handgun, rifle and falconry (special permit required) shall be legal for taking all game species except turkey. It shall be illegal to hunt or take squirrel or rabbits at any time with a breech-loaded rifle or handgun larger than a .22 caliber rimfire or a primitive firearm larger than a .36 caliber.

During closed deer gun season, it shall be illegal to possess shotgun shells loaded with slugs or shot larger than BB lead or F steel shot while small game hunting.

Still hunting is defined as stalking or stationary stand hunting without the use of dog(s). Pursuing, driving or hunting deer with dogs is prohibited when or where a still hunting season or area is designated and will be strictly enforced.

Shotguns larger than a 10 gauge or capable of holding more than three shells shall be prohibited. Plugs used in shotguns must be incapable of being removed without disassembly.

Refer to game schedules contained within these regulations for specific restrictions on the use of firearms and other devices.

Nuisance Animals

Landowners or their designees may remove beaver and nutria causing damage to their property without a special permit. Water set traps and firearms may be used to remove beaver; nutria may be removed by any means EXCEPT that nutria cannot be taken by the use of headlight and gun between the hours of sunset and sunrise. With a special permit issued by LDWF, beavers may be taken between one-half hour after official sunset to one-half hour before official sunrise for a period of three consecutive calendar evenings from the effective date of the permit. For specific details contact a regional office near you. Any nuisance beaver or nutria trapped or shot outside open trapping season cannot be pelted or sold. A trapping license is required to sell or pelt nuisance beavers or nutria taken during open trapping season. Squirrel found destroying commercial crops of pecans may be taken year-round by permit issued by LDWF. This permit shall be valid for 30 days from the date of issuance. Contact the local regional office  or details.

Threatened and Endangered Species

Louisiana black bear, Louisiana pearl shell (mussel), sea turtles, gopher tortoise, ringed sawback turtle, brown pelican, bald eagle, peregrine falcon, whooping crane, Eskimo curlew, piping plover, interior least tern, ivory-billed woodpecker, red-cockaded woodpecker, Bachman's warbler, West Indian manatee, Florida panther, pallid sturgeon, gulf sturgeon, Attwater's greater prairie chicken, whales and red wolf. Taking or harassment of any of these species is a violation of state and federal laws. Outlaw Quadrupeds Holders of a legal hunting license may take coyotes, feral hogs where legal and armadillos year round during legal daylight shooting hours. The running of coyotes with dogs is prohibited in all turkey hunting areas during the open turkey season. Coyote hunting is restricted to chase only when using dogs during still hunting segments of the firearm and archery only season for deer. Foxes are protected quadrupeds and may be taken only with traps by licensed trappers during the trapping season. Remaind   of the year "chase only" allowed by licensed hunters.

Hunting and/or Discharging Firearms on Public Roads

Hunting, standing, loitering or shooting game quadrupeds or game birds with a gun during open season while on a public highway or public road right-of-way is prohibited. Hunting or the discharge of firearms on roads or highways located on public levees or within 100 feet from the centerline of such levee roads or highways is prohibited. Spot-lighting or shining from public roads is prohibited by state law. Hunting from all public roads and rights-of-way is prohibited and these provisions will be strictly enforced.


Any part of the deer or wild turkey divided shall have affixed thereto the name, date, address and big game license number of the person killing the deer or wild turkey and the sex of that animal. This information shall be legibly written in pen or pencil on any piece of paper or cardboard or any material which is attached or secured to or enclosing the part or parts.

Sex Identification

Positive evidence of sex identification, including the head, shall remain on any deer taken or killed within the state of Louisiana, or on all turkey taken or killed during any special gobbler season when killing of turkey hens is prohibited, so long as such deer or turkey is kept in camp or field, or is in route to the domicile of it possessor, or until such deer or turkey has been stored at the domicile of its possessor or divided at a cold storage facility and has thus become identifiable as food rather than as wild game.

Harvest Information Program

The Harvest Information Program (HIP) Certification is required of all licensed hunters who hunt migratory bird (ducks, geese, coots doves, rails, gallinules, snipe, and woodcock), including lifetime license holders.

This federal program is design to develop better harvest estimates for all migratory birds. Hunters will be asked how many of each species that they bagged last season to allow the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to better identify persons for sampling of a specific species such as woodcock. However, even some migratory bird hunters who indicate that they did not hunt a particular species will be sampled because a percentage that did not hunt a particular species may hunt them the following year. All migratory bird hunters will not receive the federal harvest surveys. Hunters to be sampled will be randomly chosen by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from the certified hunters.

When buying your hunting license, vendors should automatically ask whether you intend to hunt migratory birds. Should this not happen and you plan to hunt migratory, you should request that the HIP questions (Privilege 09) be completed. If you initially indicate that you are not planning on hunting migratory birds and later decide to hunt them, you must complete the certification process. If no other hunting licenses are being purchased, simply request the vendor to certify you for Privilege 09. There is no cost for the certification. Migratory bird hunters who do not require hunting licenses, such as 15 year-olds and younger, are also encouraged to become HIP certified. Lifetime license holders are required by law to be HIP certified if hunting migratory birds and may become certified at any Louisiana license vendor.

For more information about HIP in Louisiana call 225-765-2887.
