The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission voted Thursday (Feb. 1) to make several amendments to the proposed notice of intent for the 2018-19 hunting seasons, rules and regulations during its monthly meeting in Baton Rouge.

The commission voted to alter the season structure for deer hunting areas 5 and 7.

The new proposed dates for Deer Area 5 will occur earlier within the normal season framework, beginning with primitive firearms season, which will start Nov. 10, 2018.

The beginning and closing of archery season is all that will be affected in Deer Area 7. It will open Sept. 15, 2018, and close Jan. 15, 2019. The adjustment will allow Deer Area 7 to run concurrent with deer areas 3, 8 and 10.

An amendment to allow gill and trammel nets for commercial fishing on Spring Bayou Wildlife Management Area (WMA) passed as did an amendment to close Bussey Brake WMA to all activities until further notice.
