Many who enjoy hunting at The Sportsman’s Paradise are already making plans for the fall deer season. A lot of brush is being cleared, shooting lanes are being established, ground is being broken up and cleared, and if you haven’t already, you may want to get your tree out and make sure it’s safe for use.

If you’d like to stay up to date on changes to the regulations, you’ll want to click here. This will take you to the latest updates from the Department of Wildlife. You will also find the season schedules of your favorite game. Here you will find information on when to hunt and what type of hunting will be allowed in Louisiana’s 10 deer hunting areas.

And other valuable information you’ll want to know if you’ve received a notice that your Louisiana vessel registration is expiring. There was a small error in printing. Many of you have contacted LDWF saying you couldn’t find the renewal fee for your vessel.

This letter from Governor Edwards and Secretary Montoucet should clarify those questions. In case you are unable to click the link, the renewal fee is the number that is printed just below the expiration date on your ship’s renewal notice.

LDWF wants you to know that if you received a renewal notice with the misprint as described above, you can still renew your vessel registration by mail. The bottom line is that you need to register the boat and you can’t use this as an excuse.

If you have questions you can always contact the Department of Wildlife, they are here to help. It looks like it’s going to be another great season for Louisiana athletes, and for women as well. Just make sure you stay on top of rule changes and when seasons open and close.

And if you’re not at a deer stand or in the woods this fall, you’ll probably wish you were here at one of these, if only we had them.
