Night hunting of ‘outlaw quadrupeds’ will be permitted beginning Aug. 1
Beginning Aug. 1, properly licensed Louisiana and non-resident hunters may take “outlaw quadrupeds” — feral hogs, coyotes and armadillos, nutria and beaver — at night on private property the entire year with the landowner’s permission.
Gov. John Bel Edwards signed into law a new regulation in June, which allows for the nighttime take of these animals without a permit.
Hunters are required to contact that parish sheriff office within 24 hours prior of attempted nighttime take.
To see the full regulation, go to www.wlf.louisiana.gov/page/seasons-and-regulations, page 25.
