BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department Wildlife and Fisheries is reminding deer hunters that the six tags issued with big game licenses for the 2013-2014 season include an either sex tag.

During the season, licensed hunters can legally harvest three antlerless, two antlered and one deer of either sex. This means hunters may choose either a fourth antlerless deer, or a third antlered deer with the either sex tag. The total season harvest limit remains six.

Changes have also been implemented in the number and boundaries of some Deer Management Areas. Please refer to the printed 2013-14 Louisiana Hunting Regulations pamphlet or the on-line version available at: http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/hunting/regulations.

Hunters are reminded that all deer must be tagged before being moved from the field and each harvested deer must be reported via phone at 1-866-484-4805 or via the on-line reporting system at https://www.la.wildlifelicense.com/start.php. Click on "Validate Deer Tags" when using the on-line reporting system.

Hunters must report each deer harvested within seven days and instructions are provided on the deer tags issued to each hunter.

Lifetime license holders, youth hunters 15-and-under, and seniors who are not required to purchase hunting licenses can obtain deer tags free of charge at any license vendor.
