Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Hunter and Boater Safety Programs Experiencing Technical Difficulties

Release Date: 07/13/2018

The LDWF Hunter and Boater Safety Programs are currently experiencing technical difficulties with their computer systems.  Information Technology staff are working diligently to correct the problem.  These issues may result in additional delays in hunting and boating safety students receiving their permanent cards, as well as delays in processing requests for military/police hunter education exemptions. 

For customers needing replacement hunter or boater education cards, the duplicate card request system on the LDWF website is fully functional and can be accessed through the links below.  LDWF will temporarily be unable to fulfill in-person and telephone requests for duplicate hunting and boating safety cards.
