Oct. 23, 2018 – Deer hunting season dates for some of the Thistlethwaite Wildlife Management Area (WMA) either-sex modern firearm dates were inadvertently omitted from the 2018-19 Louisiana Hunting Regulations pamphlet.
The complete dates are listed on the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries website at ( www.wlf.la.gov/wma ).
The correct dates for either-sex modern firearms season are as follows: Nov. 23-25, Dec. 1-9 and Dec. 22-23, 2018.
In addition to the either-sex season the following dates are also open for deer hunting: Bucks only – Dec. 24, 2018 and Jan. 6, 2019; Primitive firearms – Nov. 10-11, 2018 and Jan. 7-13, 2019.
Thistlethwaite WMA is located in north central St. Landry Parish, immediately northeast of Washington, off Louisiana Highway 10. Access to the WMA via I-49 is also possible by using the Lebeau exit.
