And they're not opening Morganza, only the Bonnet Carrie for now, which means that my 2015/ 2016 deer season is done. That really sucks because they really haven't even begun moving during the day yet. Bummed...

Sorry to hear that Vortex, my son went on the December 28th hunt got a nice doe seen 11 deer and 20 plus hogs lost one in the water seems like they would make an exception for the kids.

Here is the only thing posted on the LDWF web site:


Deer Hunting Closure in Atchafalaya Basin Could Come Friday Due to Rising Flood Waters





Printable Version


Release Date: 01/05/2016




Jan. 5, 2016 – Rising flood waters in the Atchafalaya Basin could trigger an automatic deer hunting season closure in parts of Deer Area 9 as early as Friday (Jan. 8).

The High Water Benchmark Closure, enacted by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission in Title 76, will close deer hunting in an area of the Atchafalaya Basin in portions of Iberia, Iberville, St. Martin and St. Mary parishes when the flood gauge reaches 18 feet at Butte LaRose. That benchmark water level is expected to be reached either Friday or Saturday (Jan. 9).

The area encompasses those parishes south of I-10, west of the East Guide Levee, east of the West Guide Levee and north of U.S. 90.

The public is encouraged to monitor river levels this week prior to planning deer hunting in this area.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana’s abundant natural resources. For more information, visit us at www.wlf.la.gov or www.FishLA.org.
