LDWF releases dove hunting info

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) would like to remind dove hunters that when hunting on LDWF Wildlife Management Area (WMA) dove fields and LDWF private dove field leases that only non-toxic shot size 6 or smaller is allowed.

Dove season opens in Louisiana on Sept. 2. In addition to a hunting license, all migratory gamebird hunters are required to be HIP certified which is available for free on the LDWF website.
