Sept. 24, 2014 – The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is advising deer hunters using Tunica Hills Wildlife Management Area (WMA) during the bucks only archery season that the correct dates are Oct. 1-15, 2014.
The Deer Archery (bucks only) season dates for Tunica Hills WMA are incorrectly listed in the printed version of the 2014-15 Louisiana Hunting Regulations booklet on page 100.
The Oct. 1-15 dates for the Deer Archery (bucks only) season are listed correctly in the web-posted version of the hunting regulations pamphlet available on the LDWF web site at http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/hunting/regulations.
Tunica Hills WMA encompasses 5,906 acres in West Feliciana Parish and is owned by the LDWF. The WMA lies at the southern end of the “loess blufflands” escarpment that follows the east bank of the Mississippi River south from its confluence with the Ohio River. These blufflands offer a diverse and unique habitat that supports some species of plants and animals not found elsewhere in Louisiana.
