BOY OH BOY!!!
i went talk to the spillway station on the norco side of the spillway on river road. i asked them if i could run dogs for hogs and they turned me down. Does anyone know why we can't run hog dogs in the spillway or does anyone know who i could talk to higher above. Or any advice on how i could convenice ppl to let me do it...
If u have stroke then hook me up and i will split the meat or u can tag along and make a fun hunt with us!!

yeah u right!!!
yeah i have no clue y they have that dam gate up!! i should of asked them that one too. i heard something about a pipe line being built but that is just a rumor.
hogs are a introduced species that are tearing up the spillway. i think u should be able to hunt them only if ur dogs are trash broke but that is just me. well thanks for the info man.

Spillway hunting
Your first mistake was to ask. It must be something new. I have always run my hog dogs there after deer season closes and have never been questioned about it. I was not alone. There are plenty people running hog dogs there. If you have your atv permit go around the gate and do it.

Spillway
The gate north of airline hwy was put up right after the person currently in charge of the spillway took over long before any pipeline work started.

The gate
The Gate is great. It keeps all the jackwagons with their jacked up 4-wheel drive trucks from tearing up the road system and ruining the hunt for the real hunters. They had been doing it for years. U can go aroung it or go under the airline farther down from the atv track in a few places. Good Luck

Gate
Yes it\\\\\\\'s great the road isn\\\\\\\'t getting torn up by the mud riders but what good is that if I can\\\\\\\'t drive down those roads unless I illegally go around a gate meant to keep everyone out. I don\'t have a four wheeler and shouldn\'t need one to drive on federal land that can be accessed by a pickup truck with stock size all terrain tires . Moderators what\'s up with all the \\?

The gate is only to stop the trucks. You can get an atv permit from the office that will allow u access to all that area north of airline or u can walk in perfectly legal as long as u obey the rules while u are in there. As for dogs the only restrictions are during the gun hunts for deer u are not allowed to run them.

I don't think the dog is the problem. Their rule is shotgun hunting only. Guns only permitted during an open hunting season. BUCKSHOT only during open deer gun season. During gun hunts for deer no dogs allowed. If you run a dog for hog during rabbit or sq. then you only can have loads allowed for that. Permits for atv's are for hunting season only. Other than that if you want to take your chances go ahead but remember you on federal land . Them park rangers tend to get in a bad mood once in a while...

almost got introuble!!!
well i tried it out yall and u can't run dogs period in the bonnet spillway. Atleast that is what the ranger told me. He was pretty pissed off i was in there with dogs but i was let off with a warning which i was blessed with. Just giving u guys a heads up. don't run dogs in the spillway. they can take ur dogs and give u a huge fine. Luckly i didn't kill anything. Oh yeah i only had a knife on me too.

Spillway Rules
You need to carry yourself to the office over there to have them explain why. The rules in the new La. Hunt Regs. on page 110/111 clearly state that dog hunters can use the spillway except on the days of gun hunt for deer. During the week the director is usally there and can answer any questions u may have. You may have run into a ranger that was giving u his opinion and not the rules.

You need a permit to hunt. With the permit comes the regs.
under specific hunting regs. states all hunting shall be still hunting only except as otherwise specified.Under season dates sq. and rabbit same as outside except hunting with dogs not allowed north of us 61 during shotgun season for deer nov. 28-30 and dec. 20-jan.4.....hogs may be taken incidental to any spillway hunt......with weapons legal for that hunt....nothing about hog dogs. In regs. for la. there is a description for dogs on wma's legal to hunt rabbit n sq. It is not otherwise specified you can hunt hogs with dogs. I was actually told 4 wheelers were only supposed to be on 4 wheeler trails. Permits are issued only to ride on 4 wheeler trails. Not to hunt but as long as you are seriously hunting they probly won't mess with you. You can go inquire at the office by the locks and maybe the head dude give you permission but you are dealing with federal land and federal employee's. Those park rangers can give you a ticket for what they feel like and you have to go to fed court to fight it if you feel you right. If you get the permission to run your dogs go on the west side between the track and river road. They got a whole bunch nobody touches........
