The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced that Fort Polk Wildlife Management Area will be closed to hunting from Oct. 30-31 due to military training operations.

This closing means that the LDWF scheduled either-sex deer hunt on Oct. 30-31 on the WMA has been cancelled. The Fort Polk WMA is scheduled to be re-opened for the bucks-only season beginning Nov. 1.

Please check the LDWF Web site at for any possible future hunting closings and openings.
