BATON ROUGE- The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is taking action in areas impacted by Hurricane Isaac.
Seasons in the Maurepas Basin, Plaquemines Parish and St. Bernard Parishes are being shortened and limited to bucks only.
State biologists estimate 90 percent of fawns in those areas died due to floodwaters which lingered several weeks.
Sacs Western Wear manager Joey Templet says about 30 percent of his business is tied to hunting during this time of year. He tells News 2 many hunters understand the crisis, and the need to adjust to the deer population.
You can find more details on the changes at the LDWF website.
