2022-2023 Louisiana Deer Season Dates

Last Updated on August 23, 2022 by Brian Grossman

At their May 5, 2022 meeting, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission members approved the previously proposed 2022-23 hunting regulations and dates. A public comment period was held and no changes were made to the original proposal. The official 2022-2023 Louisiana deer season dates are listed below.

We do everything we can to ensure we provide the most accurate information possible, but always check the official Louisiana hunting regulations before heading afield. Good luck this season!
