Deer hunting season reopens in parts of Deer Area 9
BATON ROUGE - Deer hunting season in parts of Deer Area 9 in the Atchafalaya Basin is reopening.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says that area will reopen Saturday when the Atchafalaya River gauge at Butte La Rose falls below 18 feet.
The area encompasses Iberia, Iberville, St. Martin and St. Mary parishes south of Interstate 10, west and east of the Atchafalaya Basin Protection Levees and north of U.S. 90.
The closure was necessitated when the flood gauge reached 18 feet on Jan. 9.
Deer hunting season in Deer Area 9 is still open for primitive firearms and archery. Primitive firearms season comes to a close Sunday, 30 minutes after sunset, and archery ends Feb. 15.
