LDWF will record hunting tag validation information, agency says.
Hunters have been experiencing some problems validating their deer tags with the toll-free voice recognition system, according to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF).
To fix this problem, Wildlife Division staff at field offices around the state will accept and record tag validation information (date and parish of harvest) from hunters to complete the process as needed. Hunters having difficulty are encouraged to call the field offices during normal work hours for personal assistance with validating their harvest.
LDWF field offices are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except holidays, in the following locations:
• Monroe — 318-343-4044
• Minden — 318-371-3050
• Pineville — 318-487-5885
• Lake Charles — 337-491-2575
• Hammond — 985-543-4777
• Opelousas — 337-948-0255• Baton Rouge — 225-765-2346
Deer hunters have seven days to validate each tag used for a deer harvested this season. Hunters also have the option to validate their deer tags seven days a week, any time of the day, on-line via www.la.wildlifelicense.com.
