Is it time for Louisiana to look at possibly decreasing deer seasons and limits? The whole premise behind primitive weapons season is now a joke. I hunt in Caldwell Parish , you can hunt deer almost 5 months out of the year. I belong to an old established club and our numbers have been free falling last 3 years. We have been in DMAP since it started and had a No Spike rule last ten years. In spite of our best efforts our numbers continue to decline regardless of how much effort the membership puts in to hunts. We have suffered from aggressive timber harvesting , but we were on the decline before that. From what I hear this is State wide. I would like to see us go back to the old season structure in area 2 where season opened the 1st Saturday in November and closed the 1st Sunday in January. Do away with the Primitive weapons season and open Bow Season October 15th through mid -January. Have two any deer tags accompanied by possibly 1 or 2 additional Doe Tags. Is there science behind my thoughts….NO …but there is not much science behind what we do now and it appears to not be working.We need try something, I am sure there are smarter guys than I and can figure something out that will help.
