Louisiana Hunting, Fishing Licenses Now Digital on LA Wallet App
Sportsmen and women across Louisiana now have another way to store their hunting and fishing licenses. The state's Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has announced that Louisiana residents can keep their licenses on their smartphones via the LA Wallet app. The app is free to download from the Apple Store for iPhones or Google Play Store for Android.
Here's the official release from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries:
"The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has partnered with LA Wallet to bring digital hunting and fishing licenses to Louisiana citizens. Effective today, October 18, 2021, citizens with a Louisiana Driver’s License or State ID can use LA Wallet to display their purchased LDWF licenses on their smartphone.
Licenses can be purchased on the LDWF website through an approved retail vendor or at the LDWF headquarters in Baton Rouge. The LA Wallet app is free for the public."
The app also gives directions to access hunting and fishing licenses:
"1) Tap the LDWF Licenses credential shown on the homepage.
2) Read the disclaimer, then tap the yellow Connect LDWF Account button at the bottom.
3) Once your LDWF account is found, tap Yes to add your licenses.
Your LDWF account information will display at the top of the screen, along with your hunter education number and federal duck stamps, if they are found. To see your individual licenses, tap the category to expand the licenses in that category. You will only see the categories for which you hold licenses. Expired licenses will display for 30 days in LA Wallet."
LA Wallet is a free, digital version of a valid state driver’s license. The app can also hold the official digital version of a citizen’s COVID-19 vaccination status. Eligible users can also renew their driver’s license or request a duplicate license from the app for a fee.
