The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) today adopted a notice of intent for clarification to the rules and regulations pertaining to the Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP).
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) recommended the changes to clarify for program participants when the harvest of antlerless deer is permitted. Antlerless deer may be harvested any day of the deer season on property enrolled in DMAP provided a DMAP tag is possessed by the hunter at time of harvest.
Under DMAP, LDWF biologists work with participating hunting clubs and private landowners to accomplish their specific goals and objectives for deer population management.

Comments will also be accepted by mail sent to Johnathan Bordelon, Wildlife Division, Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries, P.O. Box 9800, Baton Rouge, LA, 70898-9000 or via email to email@example.com.
