In many places you can hunt hogs 24/7/365
I have a tendency to miss minor details or overlook some things. Wanted to make sure there wasn't a clause somewhere in the law I was missing.

Yes I think you must have a big game license to do this. I always have a big game license so I have never made for sure this was a law but I think it is.


Pretty sure just need a basic hunting license.

re: Want to make sure I understand legalities of hog hunting
August 15, 2011-The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) wants to remind citizens that a valid Louisiana hunting license is still required to take outlaw quadrupeds including feral hogs with the new laws that went into effect today, Aug. 15.

Legislation passed during the 2011 Legislative Session, provides additional options for citizens to take outlaw quadrupeds (armadillos, coyotes, feral hogs) and nuisance animals (nutria and beaver).

House Bill 294, signed into law by Governor Bobby Jindal as Act 95, makes it legal beginning today, to take outlaw quadrupeds, nutria and beaver at night from March through August on private property with any legal firearm. Anyone taking part in these activities at night is required to notify the parish sheriff’s office 24 hours in advance of any such hunt.

Additionally, House Bill 169, signed into law by Governor Jindal as Act 29, allows the take of nuisance quadrupeds at night using sound suppressors on the firearm(s) utilized, beginning today. Anyone using such a weapon must have in possession a valid permit issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The use of sound suppressed weapons is restricted to the take of outlaw quadrupeds, including coyotes and feral hogs, from March through August on private property.

Going to have to shine until I hit the lottery. Thinking of getting a couple of motion activated lights to strap to feeders and trees.
