The Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries is making things easier this hunting season with the option of text to tag instead of paper tags.
Hunters can now tag and validate their deer or turkey harvests directly from their smartphone (via text) immediately after the animal is harvested. Log into your account at LouisianaOutdoors.com then click ‘E-tag/Text-to-Tag’ to enroll in electronic text-to-tag. Then, follow the steps below to tag and validate your harvest via your smartphone. As long as you complete the electronic tag before moving the animal, you do not have to attach a physical tag.
LWF says hunters must have a physical copy or a picture of your harvest tags on your smartphone to use this feature.
If there is no cellular signal, hunters can still use traditional paper tags and validate them via phone (225.267.9998) or online within 72 hours of harvest.
