The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is advising bowhunters using Tunica Hills Wildlife Management Area that the correct dates for the bucks only archery season are Oct. 1-15, 2014.

On page 100 of the 2014-15 Louisiana Hunting Regulations booklet, the dates are incorrectly listed as extending into January of next year. 

The correct dates, Oct. 1-15 only, are listed in the online hunting regulations pamphlet, which can be accessed by clicking here

Tunica Hills WMA encompasses 5,906 acres in West Feliciana Parish and is owned by LDWF. 

According to a press release, the WMA lies at the southern end of the “loess blufflands” escarpment that follows the east bank of the Mississippi River south from its confluence with the Ohio River. These blufflands offer a diverse and unique habitat that supports some species of plants and animals not found elsewhere in Louisiana.
