The 2013-14 Migratory Game Bird Regulations pamphlet is now available online at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Web site by clicking here.
The pamphlet includes early hunting season dates for doves, gallinules, rails and teal in September, as well as the November opening dates for ducks, coots, geese and mergansers, as well as woodcock in December.
Youth hunting dates are also listed, and season dates are provided per zone, according to a press release.
Office locations and phone numbers for US Fish and Wildlife Service special agents are incorrectly listed in the printed pamphlet. Corrected listings, which do appear within the pamphlet posted on the LDWF website, include the following three USFWS offices:
Lacombe (985) 882-3756
Lafayette (337) 291-3114
Metairie (504) 219-8870
The LDWF press release of Aug. 1 that announced the youth hunt dates for migratory waterfowl season in the West Zone contained an incorrect January date. The corrected date for the second Saturday for youth-only waterfowl hunting in the West Zone is Jan. 25. That date is correctly noted in the printed and web-posted 2013-14 Migratory Game Bird Regulations pamphlet, the release states.
