Louisiana Area 2 Deer Season – Important Dates to Remember

Photo by Gary McCoy

Hard to believe that deer season begins in only 8 days.  Bow season starts October 1. We can almost hold our breath that long can’t we?  

Game cameras are already filling our minds with winter dreams!  Hunters are scouting the woods looking for the perfect spot to perch and possibly see that monster whitetail! We’re bush hogging, plowing and planting some of the most beautiful food plots in the country and in just 8 days the quest begins!

With deer season so close, we felt it would be useful to put some important deer season dates all together in one convenient reference place for you so be sure print this out for future reference.

Oh, and please note, these dates are ONLY for Area 2 (Northwest Louisiana).

  • October 1 – January 31 – Archery Season
  • October 10 – October 16 – Youth and Honorably Discharged Veterans Season
  • October 24 – October 30 AND January 18 – January 24 – Primitive Weapons Season
  • October 31 – December 8 – Still hunting ONLY (no dogs)
  • December 9 – January 17 – With or without dogs

Again this year, during the special Primitive Weapons Season, youths 17 or younger may hunt either sex deer with any legal weapon during the Primitive Firearms Season in each deer hunting area.   Read more about this special exemption at

In regards to the Youth Deer Season, it is restricted to youths 17 or younger only and resident honorably discharged veterans.  Other restrictions apply and can be read at

And please remember, all persons born on or after September 1, 1969, must successfully complete a Hunter Education Course in order to hunt in the state of Louisiana.
