Default Now Closed to deer hunting

High Water in Maurepas Swamp WMA Forces Closure of Deer Hunting Season

Release Date: 11/01/2019

Nov. 1, 2019 - Rising flood waters in the Maurepas Swamp Wildlife Management Area (WMA) have triggered an automatic deer hunting season closure. The benchmark closure, enacted by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission, closes deer hunting in the WMA when the flood gauge reaches 3.0 feet.

It will remain closed until the gauge falls below 2.5 feet.

Maurepas Swamp WMA, with 112,615 acres in Ascension, Livingston, St. John the Baptist and St. James parishes, is approximately 25 miles west of New Orleans along the south shore of Lake Maurepas west of Sorrento. For more information, go to

For more information on hunting regulations for Maurepas Swamp WMA, go to or contact Jillian Day at or 985-543-477

Did they close cat island due to road issues? The Mississippi River doesn't appear to be that high.

They closed cat Island stating it’s for “safety measures” because MS River was at 24ft at the Baton Rouge marker which they said is located in St. Francisville. The 24ft mark is at almost flood level. So it sounds like they are closing it before flooding occurs. They said it will remain closed until level goes below 24ft...
