Here in the Sportsman's Paradise, keeping a current hunting and fishing license is nearly as important as keeping fresh milk in the refrigerator.  And the time has come again to renew your fishing and hunting licenses.

Course, we had that free fishing weekend a few weeks ago, but that weekend is over, and after tomorrow, the license you bought last year, won't cut the mustard anymore.

Our 2019-2020 license will expire tomorrow, Tuesday, June 30, 2020, so you'll need a new one if you plan to hunt or fish any time from July 1 through next June, 2021.  You can get these at most area sporting goods stores, some grocery/convenience stores and even online at wlf.louisiana.gov.

Course, you might also consider getting the lifetime fishing or hunting license or maybe you want the combo.  That way you never have to think about renewal again.  Those are also available online here at wlf.louisiana.gov/lifetime-licenses

Louisiana has also made concessions for our seniors in regards to both hunting and fishing privileges. Any resident aged 60 or greater need only purchase a special combo that includes all hunting and fishing privileges for only $5. Once that person reaches 80 years of age, there are no license requirements for residents of Louisiana.

Additionally, an angler aged 65 or higher can enjoy the agreement reached between Texas and Louisiana and can fish in all Texas lakes using only their Louisiana fishing license.
