Today, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced that several staff members in the licensing division located at its headquarters on 2000 Quail Drive in Baton Rouge have either tested positive for COVID-19 or been in contact with someone who has tested positive.

LDWF is taking every precaution to protect the public and following all safety guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and the Louisiana Dept. of Health.

The office remains open to the public. Licenses will continue to be issued and renewed, however to help avoid delays, they can also be requested by phone, online or by visiting any one of our vendors across the state.

LDWF thanks the public in advance for their patience.

To purchase or renew your license visit our license purchase webpage and for a list of retail license vendors visit our Outdoor Explorer map and choose the ‘License Vendor’ layer.
