From Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries
-- From Dec. 17 to 25, the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in cooperation with Kisatchie National Forest is requiring permits for all deer hunters on KNF lands within the Catahoula, Winn and Kisatchie Ranger Districts and the Evangeline Unit of the Calcasieu Ranger District designated “with or without dogs” deer hunting dates.
The no cost permit required during the “with or without dogs” portion of the hunting season is available online at https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/webform/knf-deer-hunting-permit.
The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) approved “with or without dogs” dates during a special meeting in August.
Every deer hunter in Kisatchie National Forest, except on the Caney Ranger District and the Vernon Unit of the Calcasieu Ranger District, during these dates, regardless of age, is required to have this permit.
Deer hunters using dogs must register an identifying mark with LDWF. Each dog must wear a collar providing the owner’s name, address and phone number. To obtain a permit, the hunter must provide their name and address and the identifying mark used on dogs engaged in the hunt.
