Louisiana Deer Harvest Estimates

The information below is from reports compiled by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries (LDWF).

In Louisiana each deer hunter, regardless of age or license status, must obtain a deer tag harvest card prior to hunting and posses this card while deer hunting. Immediately upon harvesting a deer, the hunter must document the kill on the card. All hunters must then file a deer harvest report with LDWF at the end of the season, even if no deer were harvested.
