It's time to bait the hook! Alligator season in the west zone of Louisiana opens today. That includes most of Acadiana. In case you were wondering, you must be a licensed alligator hunter to purchase the necessary tags to hunt them in specific areas. Sport licenses are available for individuals who are guided by a licensed hunter who has tags. If you wanna be an alligator hunter like Troy Landry or the swamp queen Liz from Vermilion Parish, here's a link to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries website.
