Hunters get a break with tax-free weekend
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Guns, ammunition and other hunting supplies are exempt from state and local sales taxes this weekend.

The exemption does not apply to golf carts, go-carts, dirt bikes, mini-bikes, motorcycles, tractors, motor vehicles which may be legally driven on the streets and highways of Louisiana, or heavy equipment such as cranes, forklifts, backhoes and bulldozers
