Some new deer hunting regulations will go into effect this next season for Louisiana deer hunters. Here’s a brief rundown of the changes.

New this year, hunters will have to carry with them at all times when hunting, a tag harvest card. Hunters will need to write down information about every deer they take. At the end of the season, whether the card is blank or full, it must be returned to wildlife officials.

Another change is the number and species of deer that can be taken. The total limit is six deer but no more than three bucks and three does.

Louisiana is one state that is following in the footsteps of other states to use some kind of tagging process to better collect data to help in deer management.
