The following is a News Release from the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries:

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission today adopted the season dates and regulations for the 2012 turkey hunting season, as recommended by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF).

The change in the turkey season framework approved by the Commission provides for a uniform statewide opening  on the fourth Saturday in March.  In 2012, the season will open March 24 in three designated areas with varying end of season dates as follows:  Area A, March 24 to April 22; Area B, March 24 to April 15; and Area C, March 24 to April 8.

Special private land youth hunts for those 17 years of age and younger and hunts for wheelchair confined hunters would take place on March 17-18, 2012 in all areas. The daily bag limit would remain one gobbler, and the season limit would be two gobblers.

Details for the 2012 turkey season, including dates for LDWF Wildlife Management Areas and special lottery hunts, are available on line at http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/hunting/turkey within the Sept. 2011 amended Notices of Intent presented to the Commission. Those details will be reflected in the printed 2012 Louisiana Turkey Regulations that will be available prior to the season.
