The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is reminding hunters that the 2013-14 dove hunting season starts on Sept. 7 in both the north and south zones.
LDWF is issuing this reminder because the 2013-14 Louisiana dove season falls at a later date than past seasons. Furthermore, the LDWF smart phone app may not be updated with the current hunting regulations in time for the start of the dove hunting season.
LDWF is currently working with the app provider to get it updated with hopes to have the update available shortly with the 2013-14 hunting regulations. The current LDWF smart phone app still contains last year's hunting regulations that had the 2012-13 dove hunting season starting on Sept. 1.
The 2013-14 dove hunting season for the south zone runs from Sept. 7-15, Oct. 19-Dec. 1 and Dec. 21-Jan.6. The north zone runs from Sept. 7-22, Oct. 12-Nov. 10 and Dec. 14-Jan. 6. The daily bag limit is 15 in the aggregate with a possession limit of 45 in the aggregate.
For more information on the north and south zone boundaries for the dove hunting season, please refer to the 2013-14 hunting regulations pamphlet found at www.wlf.louisiana.gov/regulations.
