Later this month, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will be taking hunting and fishing licenses out of retail stores around the state. However this is only a temporary situation. The Louisiana Radio Network explains:

"Sportsman will be unable to renew their hunting and fishing licenses at retail stores for two months starting January 30th while the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries transitions to a new system. Spokesperson Rene LeBreton says the state has a new vendor for licensing. They will be available again at retail stores April 2nd.

While retailers are training on the new system, licenses will still be available through the LDWF website, but LeBreton says he understands that not everyone is comfortable applying online. Licenses will also be available at regional offices and LDWF headquarters. All license sales will be unavailable from January 30th to 31st."
