May 5, 2016 – The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission adopted a notice of intent for a permit to be issued for the night-time take of outlaw quadrupeds, nutria and beaver on private property during its May meeting Thursday in Baton Rouge.
The permit will be valid for a period of one year from July 1-June 30 the following year, however, they may only be used from Sept. 1 of each year through the final day of February of the next year. Permits may be renewed annually without additional application.
Permittees may take outlaw quadrupeds, nutria or beaver during nighttime hours on private property from one-half hour after official sunset until one-half hour before official sunrise.
The proposed changes are designed to streamline the application process and alleviate concerns relative to depredation and property damage by outlaw quadrupeds, nutria and beaver.
