Release Date: 05/03/2019

May 3, 2019 - The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) approved the 2019-20 and 2020-21 resident game hunting seasons, 2019-20 general and Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) hunting seasons, rules and regulations, 2020 general and WMA turkey hunting season, rules and regulations and 2019-20 migratory bird hunting season, rules and regulations at its May meeting Thursday in Baton Rouge.
 
In doing so, the commission voted to reject an amendment adopted at its March meeting altering the light geese and white-fronted geese hunting season.
 
The season will, as originally scheduled, run 88 days with a daily limit of two birds. The first split will be from Nov. 2-Dec. 8, 2019 with the second split set for Dec. 21, 2019-Feb. 9, 2020. These splits are good for the North and South zones.
 
The Conservation Order for Light Geese will also be held as originally scheduled. The first split will be from Dec. 9-Dec. 13, 2019 with the second split to be held from Feb. 10-March 15, 2020.

 
The notice of intent presented in January by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) for the upcoming hunting seasons, along with four other amendments made in February and March, were ratified on Thursday (May 2).
