FISHING AND HUNTING RECREATIONAL LICENSES TO EXPIRE JUNE 30

Release Date: 05/16/2006

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries would like to remind the state's recreational hunters and anglers that their 2005/06 licenses will expire on June 30.  Licenses for the 2006/07 seasons will become available for purchase beginning June 1 and will be valid until June 30, 2007.


Sportsmen now have several different ways to purchase or renew their licenses.  They may be purchased with a Visa or MasterCard credit card either by visiting www.wlf.louisiana.gov and clicking on  "Online Sales" from the "Licenses/Permits" dropdown menu or calling 1-888-765-2602.  Local license vendors also offer recreational hunting and fishing licenses.  Accepted forms of payment may vary according to the location.  Licenses are also available at the LDWF Headquarters building in Baton Rouge, and at LDWF field offices in Opelousas and Monroe.


"Hunting or fishing without a valid license carries a $50 minimum fine," said LDWF License Director Janis Landry.  "LDWF wants to make sure that everybody is reminded that all recreational licenses expire on June 30."
