squirrel season

Spring squirrel hunting season begins Saturday, May 2, in Louisiana and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) reminds hunters to use social distancing practices due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Spring squirrel season runs from May 2-24. The daily bag limit for squirrels during the spring is three with nine as the possession limit for the season.
To purchase a hunting license, go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/page/wmarefugeconservation-area-licenses-and-permits . For more information on squirrel hunting in Louisiana, go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/subhome/small-game.
For more information on the coronavirus, go to http://gohsep.la.gov/portals/0/Documents/SPE/COVID/COVID-19-FAQ.pdf.
LDWF also reminds squirrel hunters planning on hunting on state wildlife management areas (WMAs) to check current regulations on whether or not spring squirrel season is allowed on that particular WMA. Go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/page/seasons-and-regulations to see the 2019-20 hunting rules and regulations.
Hunters are also reminded that a free self-clearing permit is required for all activities on WMAs. The check-in portion must be completed before each day’s activity. The check-out portion must be carried by each person while on the WMA and must be completed upon exiting the WMA.
LDWF encourages visitors to WMAs to utilize LDWF’s free WMA Check In/Check Out App to complete the self-clearing process. The LDWF WMA Check In/Check Out App allows users to check in and check out electronically via their smart device or web portal.
