One

You cannot sell alligator snapping turtles in Louisiana anymore. Recreationally you can take one per day, per boat or vehicle. There is no size limit but you must have a fishing license.

I think so

I'm not the law Bird Dog, but I think you would be ok leaving one, while taking the other.. I'm assuming your leaving it in a hoop net? Just wondering..
