Abstract

Title:  Laissez lesbons temps rouler- Louisiana Joins the Parade
Author(s): David Moreland, Deer Program Manager, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries
Year: 2003
Abstract: An experimental antler restriction program has been established in three parishes in south Louisiana for the 2002/03 hunting season. Only bucks with six or more points (points must be at least one inch long) or bucks with both spikes, three inches or less, can be legally harvested. Landowners and hunters within these three parishes asked the Commission to initiate this program in their area. A pre-season opinion and attitude survey regarding this six point program and program expectations has been sent to hunters, hunting clubs, and landowners. Once the season is over, another opinion and attitude survey concerning the perceived results and accomplishments of the program during the first year will be mailed out to the same group. Harvest data from hunting clubs and landowners will be collected and compared with data from previous years. Survey results, along with harvest data for this first year, will be presented.
