From the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries
-- The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is reminding the state’s recreational anglers and hunters that their 2008-09 licenses expire on June 30. Licenses for the 2009-10 seasons became available for purchase on June 1 and will be valid until June 30, 2010.
“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 aware that all recreational licenses expire on June 30 of every year.”
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/licenses/onlinesales or calling 1-888-765-2602. Local license vendors also offer recreational hunting and fishing licenses. Licenses are also available at the LDWF Headquarters building in Baton Rouge and at LDWF field offices in Opelousas, Lake Charles, Pineville and Monroe.
