LDWF announces 2015 alligator lottery hunts
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will select eligible alligator hunters through a lottery selection system featuring five Coastal and Nongame Resources (CNR) Division Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs), 15 Wildlife Division WMAs, one U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) property and 25 public lakes for the 2015 alligator harvest season.
Interested participants may print out an application from LDWF’s website at www.wlf.louisiana.gov/hunting/lottery-hunts or request an application by phone for CNR Division WMAs at 337-373-0032 or Wildlife Division WMAs and public lakes at 225-765-2346.
The lottery alligator harvests will be conducted between Aug. 26 and Oct. 1, 2015. Exact harvest dates will vary by WMA/public lake and will be specified at the time selected hunters are notified.
Applicants must be a legal Louisiana resident and 16 years of age or older.
All applicants meeting the application requirements will be entered into a randomized computer drawing, which will take place by August 2015. Selected hunters will be notified by mail.
