DEER hunting closed

Reply
I was wondering if anyone has heard if the Wildlife and Fisheries has closed the Deer season around the Blind River area due to high water?

I deer hunted Maurepas Swamp on Sunday the 13th, got checked by a game warden and he didn't say anything about it. I did just read on Eatel's home page that the Amite and Diversion are closed to "recreational traffic".

just spoke to someone with the garyville hunting club. he informed me that the LDWF has closed the deer hunting on all of the maurepas swamp basin. this includes all management area land and all privately owned land. they are putting up a no hunting sign at the airline boat launch on garyville canal.

i just got an email back from LDWLF. the only place closed right now is pearl river wma. in my opinion they should close everything in south east louisiana below interstate 12 and interstate 10 and some place above I-10 that are flooded. the LDWLF needs to step up for the future of our deer herd because in lafourche parish where i hunt they are wacken and stackin deer by riding in boats. its a shame. the deer need gills and a life jacket right now.
